Guy Whimper Signing Insulates The Steelers From Need Along The Offensive Line

Even if the Guy Whimper signing ultimately ends up as just a placeholder, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ decision to bring back ‘Abdullah the Butcher’ is a shrewd one that insulates them from need along the offensive line. He was greatly maligned when he was first brought here last offseason, but he proved that he was worth his salary, playing 270 snaps in total and at least a handful...

Don’t Read Too Much Into The Steelers Decision To Bring Back Guy Whimper

While I am a little bit surprised the Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed veteran offensive lineman Guy Whimper on Monday, I do understand the reasoning behind the move. In the grand scheme of things, however, I don't think much should be read into him being re-signed. Whimper, to his credit, played better than I expected he would last year when called upon.

Steelers Re-Sign OL Guy Whimper

Pittsburgh could use some depth at offensive tackle, but it’s hard to say that...

Still, it’s not generally a hard concept to grasp, and we have a pretty good feel by now of how Mike Tomlin and his...
