Steelers Encouraged to Make Big Free Agency Splash: ‘I’d Pay’

The Pittsburgh Steelers experienced problems at inside linebacker again in 2023. To fix the issue, two former Steelers linebackers proposed the possibility of the team addressing the need once more in free agency — this time with Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowler Patrick Queen.

“I’d pay for Patrick Queen,” former NFL linebacker Terence Garvin said to his former teammate Arthur Moats. “I like Patrick Queen. I’m a Patrick Queen fan.”

Moats and his co-host suggested the idea to Garvin during an episode of The Arthur Moats Experience With Deke Podcast on January 25. Moats and Garvin played together for the Steelers from 2014-15.

Signing Queen, who made second-team All-Pro in 2023, would be a major upgrade for the Steelers at inside linebacker. But it won’t be a cheap signing.

Pro Football Focus projected the 24-year-old linebacker to receive a four-year, $72.5 million contract. Such a deal would pay Queen an average annual salary of $18.13 million per season.

Spotrac predicted a similar value for Queen on an average annual basis. But Spotrac projected Queen to receive a five-year contract worth about $92.6 million.
