Pittsburgh Steelers signs guard Isaac Seumalo to a three-year contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to move into free duty for the 2023 season regardless of the day and time. It was reported late Saturday night that the Steelers have agreed to the three-year deal with guard Isaac Seumalo.

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 all 17 regular season games and three postseason games and left the guard. According to Pro Football Focus, Seumalo was the 10th guard in the NFL last season and was an alternate for the Pro Bowl.

in seven years in Philadelphia, Seumalo played in 81 regular season games with 60 starts. Seumalo took over as the full-time starting left guard midway through the 2018 season, and injuries played a part 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 made 1,137 offensive snaps in the regular season.

Isaac Seumalo is the second lineman signed by the Steelers this week. Both Seumalo and Nate Herbig, who spent the 2022 season with the New York Jets, both come from the Philadelphia Eagles. Steelers assistant GM Andy Weidl began his time in the Eagles front office in 2016 and knows both players.

With two new domestic players on the offensive line, it looks like the Steelers are looking to mix things up this season. Despite playing every bout at left guard last season, Kevin Dotson looks set to fight for playing time in the final year of his rookie contract.
