Do the Steelers have something up their sleeves?
Plenty of free agents visits suggest the Steelers have some sort of roster plan.

I am assuming his ankle is not healing correctly, or at least is too much risk to carry him. So, our O line has lost Big AL, DeCastro, Pouncey, and Feiler.

Not sure what to think yet.

Decastro was terrible last year along with Pouncey he was part of the problem. He was a great lineman but he played injured and it showed wish him the best but his time has come.
Here's to hoping we get a good replacement and they fill the spot well enough to help the team win games.

I've been hearing rumblings about DeCastro for a few weeks, so while this move is surprising, I'm not totally shocked by it.

Here's to hoping Turner is an upgrade although I'm wondering why they only signed him to a 1 year deal. Pretty sure he's coming off of an injury too.

Steelers act quickly to add free agent guard Trai Turner to replace David DeCastro

https://triblive.com/sports/steelers-act-quickly-to-add-free-agent-guard-trai-turner-to-replace-david-decastro/

Turner, 28, spent his first six NFL seasons with the Carolina Panthers. He made the Pro Bowl five times in Carolina, one fewer selection than DeCastro had with the Steelers, before he was traded to Los Angeles for Russell Okung.

Turner was limited to nine games last season because of injuries — he missed seven of the first eight games — and was released in March with the Chargers opting to free up $11.3 million on the salary cap.

“I’m back at 100 percent,” he said. “Last year was a rough season for me with injuries and just overall covid. But hey, you know, you go through things and situations arise, but you work it and you get through it.

Turner hasn’t played more than 13 games in a season since 2016. He has started 89 of the 93 games he has played in his NFL career. He was the Panthers’ third-round pick in 2014 out of LSU.

The Steelers saved $8.75 million in DeCastro’s base salary by releasing him and were an estimated $15 million under the salary cap prior to adding Turner.

Well, if you're going to pull a guard out of your ass make it a good one... Lol

Good analysis. Sometimes people play too much into rankings without taking a deeper dive.

Steelers to save $5.75 million in cap space by swapping out David DeCastro for Trai Turner

https://www.theredzone.org/Blog-Description/EntryId/16259/Steelers-to-save--5-75-million-in-cap-space-by-swapping-out-David-DeCastro-for-Trai-Turner

The veteran guard’s signing was made official Friday, and it is a one-year, $3 million deal. DeCastro’s release Thursday saved the Steelers $8.75 million on the salary cap.


DeCastro still will account for just more than $5.5 million on the team’s cap this season, which was to be the final year of a five-year, $50 extension he signed in 2016.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And after almost a decade of stability at the position, the names now are virtually unrecognizable from just a couple years ago.

The release of David DeCastro on Thursday capped a 16-month stretch in which all five starters from 2019 have been cut, retired or left via free agency. Go back to early 2019 and look at the long-trusted names who’ve departed from the position room:

Unit coach Mike Munchak (left for job with Denver, January 2019)
Eight-year starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert (March 2019 trade to Arizona)
Nine-year starting left guard Ramon Foster (March 2020 retirement)
11-year center Maurkice Pouncey (January 2021 retirement)
Three-year, two-position starter Matt Feiler (signed with Chargers, March 2021)
Six-year starting left tackle Alejandro Villanueva (signed with Ravens, May 2021)
Nine-year starting right guard DeCasto (released, June 2021)


Each move was necessary, justifiable or a circumstance outside the Steelers’ control. But any way you look at it, that’s quite the 30-month talent drain at one position group.

O-Line got a hell of a lot younger real fast! If they come together and are coached well and Canada builds a good solid game plan we may have done a great job rebuilding the line quickly across the board. Time will tell.

keeping him honest this training camp, doesn't Boswell have 2 years left on his contract?
