Cap Space Available: 

General manager Kevin Colbert said the Steelers are turning focus to the 2020 NFL Draft, meaning they'll be taking their foot off the gas in free agency. With the 49th pick, Pittsburgh still needs to find depth at a number of positions. 

Their XFL signings won't be official until the team is able to complete a physical on them once the COVID-19 restrictions are finished. 

The Steelers also traded for Chris Wormley during free agency. Sending a 2021 fifth-round pick to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for Wormley and a 2021 seventh-round pick, Pittsburgh will take a $2.133 million cap once his physical is completed. 

 Through March 26, the NFL has seen 153 unrestricted free agents sign with new teams and 75 re-sign with their team.
