Marcus Gilbert has settled in as the Steelers’ right tackle, and now they want to keep him around long-term.
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the team is working on an extension for the former second-rounder, and it could be finalized as soon as this week.
Gilbert has bounced back and forth, and they tried him at left tackle earlier this offseason before moving him back to the right side this week.
Gilbert’s entering the final year of his rookie deal.
The Steelers have used some high draft picks on linemen, and bringing in former Titans head coach Mike Munchak to coach them this season should bring out the best in those players, at least if they figure out which position they want them to play.
