Report: Steelers Trade Jaguars for LB Joe Schobert

The Pittsburgh Steelers boost their inside linebacker room.

The Pittsburgh Steelers aren't done with their offseason additions. According to Pro Football Focus' Brad Spielberger and Twitter's E_Dilla, the Steelers are trading with the Jacksonville Jaguars for linebacker Joe Schobert. 

Schobert, 27, spent his first four seasons with the Cleveland Browns before signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020 for five years and $53 million. According to Spielberger, the Jaguars will retain some of Schobert's salary. 

Schobert's wife, Megan, also sent a welcome to Steelers Nation, confirming the transaction. 

The inside linebacker will join Devin Bush, Robert Spillane, Buddy Johnson, Marcus Allen and Ulysees Gilbert III in the linebacker room. In five NFL seasons, Schobert has accumulated nine interceptions, nine forced fumbles, 21 tackles for loss, 11 sacks and 549 tackles. He led the league with 144 tackles during his lone Pro Bowl season in 2017 with the Browns and led the Jaguars with 141 tackles during his lone season in Jacksonville, along with three interceptions and two forced fumbles.
