The Pittsburgh Steelers took their first step toward lifestyles with out Maurkice Pouncey on Thursday. The crew signed heart J.C. Hassenauer to a one-year contract, locking up the uncommon rights free agent for the 2021 season.
Pouncey announced his retirement in February leaving a large hole within the guts of the Steelers offensive line. Hassenauer started four video games in 2020 somewhat than an injured Pouncey. Hassenauer isn’t an elite participant but turned into once solid in his place and might perhaps possess the main opportunity to prefer the starting up job despite the undeniable truth that the Steelers sign any other damaged-down or exhaust a draft accumulate on one.
