Pittsburgh Steelers Free Agents 2023

Last Updated: July 1, 2023
Through an inconsistent season, they still managed to hang tough and stay in the picture — Boardroom looks at the upcoming Steelers free agents for the 2023 offseason.

By any measure, the Pittsburgh Steelers are one sports’ truly historic franchises. They have only needed three head coaches over the past 54 years, and their five Super Bowl victories are second-most in NFL history. Incumbent head coach Mike Tomlin, currently in his 16th season, has gone to lengths to maintain that enduring standard of excellence in all its tough, persistent, gritty glory, and has seven AFC North titles and a Super Bowl ring to show for it.

This 2022 season, however, has likely been the toughest for the Steelers under Tomlin. After longtime quarterback Ben Roethlisberger retired at the end of last year, transitioning to the next signal-caller was a must. The team selected Kenny Pickett out of the University of Pittsburgh, but also signed former No. 2 overall pick Mitch Trubisky so Pickett could ease into the starting role. However, inconsistency from Trubisky led Tomlin to make the move to the rookie early.

And while the inconsistency was frequently the name of the game throughout the campaign, the Steelers never nosedived.

As to whether you consider 2022 a success for the Black and Gold, your mileage may vary — but it’s more than clear that the approaching offseason presents a serious opportunity to gain more ground in the unforgiving AFC North. With that in mind, Boardroom takes a look at the full slate of Pittsburgh Steelers free agents hitting the open market in 2023.
