The Steelers are talking about a contract extension with Alex Highsmith, but that didn’t get in the way of their efforts to add another veteran to their edge rushing group.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the team has agreed to a deal with Markus Golden. It will be a one-year deal in Pittsburgh for Golden, who visited with the team this week.

Golden had 48 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and 20 quarterback hits in 17 games for the Cardinals last season. He had 22 sacks in four seasons with the Cardinals to start his career and 14 more in 2020 and 2021 after returning to Arizona in a trade with the Giants.

Golden will join Highsmith and T.J. Watt as options off the edge in Pittsburgh this season.

  1. Wow, great signing. Steelers roster is stacked this year! Steelers gonna roll!!!

  2. KHHHAAANNNNNNNN !!!! Stop signing these terrible free agent players. Steelers have plenty of depth and we don’t need to have our salary cap used up by players that will be cut in September.

  3. Golden is washed and doesn’t have anything left in the tank, Steelers would of been far far better off had they just drafted a 3rd or 4th round rookie to bolster their edge depth over a washed aged veteran.

  4. Superb signing for depth. Really could not be any better. A proven vet.

  5. Um, the Steelers did draft a 4th round rookie to bolster OLB depth. They also signed Golden to bolster depth. Both were needed and smart signings. The Steelers are going to be very good this year. Sleep on them at your own risk.
