The Pittsburgh Steelers lost defenseman Stephon Tuitt. by ESPN. Ogunjobi is also reported to have recently visited the New York Jets.earlier this month, but they may have already identified a replacement. On Tuesday, the Steelers will host former Cincinnati Bengals guard Larry Ogunjobi.
Ogunjobi reportedly agreed back in March to a three-year, $40.5 million contract with the Chicago Bears.after a protective tackle failed nat. He injured his leg in the playoffs against the Las Vegas Raiders last season and had surgery for that reason.
Ogunjobi ended his career year in his only season with the Bengals, recording 49 combined tackles, 16 QBs and seven sacks in 16 games played. The University of North Carolina at Charlotte product was originally developed by the Cleveland Browns in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He spent his first four NFL seasons with Cleveland, recording 180 combined tackles and 14.5 sacks in 60 games played.
Without Tuitt last year, the Steelers statistically had the worst defense in the NFL. Pittsburgh drafted Texas A&M’s DeMarvin Leal and also drafted Chris Wormley, but Ogunjobi would certainly be an upgrade to that line of defense.
