The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to move freely regardless of the day or time for the 2023 season. It was reported late Saturday night that the Steelers had agreed to guard Isaac Seumalo’s three-year deal.

Seumalo spent all seven years of his NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles. Drafted in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft from Oregon State, Seumalo started and left the guard in all 17 regular-season games and three postseason games. According to Pro Football Focus, Seumalo was the 10th guard in the NFL last season and a Pro Bowl substitute.

in seven years at Philadelphia, Seumalo has appeared in 81 regular-season games from 60 starts. He took over as a full-time starting left guard midway through the 2018 season, injuries having been a factor in Seumalo’s career. In 2018, Seumalo missed the final three weeks of the season with a chest injury. After playing every game in 2019, Seumalo missed seven games midway through the 2020 season with a knee injury. In 2021, Seumalo suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury in Week 3. But in 2022, Seumalo started every game and played 1,137 offensive snaps in the regular season.

Isaac Seumalo is the second inside offensive lineman signed by the Steelers this week. Both Seumalo and Nate Herbig, who spent the 2022 season with the New York Jets, are both from the Philadelphia Eagles. Steelers Assistant GM Andy Weidl began his stint in the Eagles’ front office in 2016 and is familiar with both players.

With two new inside players on the offensive line, the Steelers seem to be mixing things up this season. Despite playing every snap at left flank last season, Kevin Dotson appears to be struggling for playing time heading into the final year of his rookie contract.
