STEELERS SIGN FREE AGENT ISAAC SEUMALO
Starting his NFL career in 2016, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Isaac Seumalo in the third round. He didn’t take the field until the following season, playing in 14 games. In 2018, Seumalo was back-up until Week 5, gaining a starting role for the next nine consecutive weeks until he was injured.
In 2019, Seumalo signed a three-year contract extension, suffering an injury the following two seasons. He returned for 2022 on the No. 1 offensive line in the league, playing on the right side for the first time in four years. He logged 1,100+ snaps and was named a Pro Bowl alternate. Pro Football Focus also graded him a 72.6, placing him in the top-ten for all qualifying guards.
After finishing the season, he became one of 20 free agents on the Eagles. He will now head to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who signed him to a three-year contract.
Seumalo will join fellow teammate Nate Herbig who signed with the Steelers last week. Herbig was with the New York Jets this past season. In total, he has played 28 starts and will remain with the Steelers for two years under an $8 million deal.
With Seumalo gone, the Eagles will likely place Cam Jurgens in his position.
