Scott Brown is reporting via Twitter that Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent lineman Doug Legursky has signed his one year restricted tender offer of $1.26 million. Legursky is the third restricted free agent now to sign his tender as Ramon Foster and David Johnson have also signed theirs this past week. That leaves Ryan Mundy, Keenan Lewis and Mike Wallace as the only three players yet to sign.
Mundy and Lewis are expected to sign their $1.26 million tenders at any time now, but it was reported on Wednesday that Wallace does not intend on signing his first round tender of $2.742 million and is prepared to sit out offseason workouts until he gets a long term deal.
Legursky originally signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2008 and initially got his break on the Steelers practice squad later that year. He was promoted to the Steelers 53 man roster in the second half of the 2009 season and has stuck ever since. Legursky was an exclusive rights free agent last offseason and was restricted this past offseason.
Legursky had shoulder surgery this past offseason, but should be ready to go by the time training camp rolls around.
Good sign, very versitle player
Legursky is worth 1.26 the only one they tendered I don’t feel like is worth the money is Johnson…… Good to see Depth on the OL with Essex back maybe they will only draft one OL now….. Who knows but glad to see them back and Colon back this yr…..
I love this team’s operating procedure. They really try to get guys back into the fold who know the Steelers way, they have won with before, and cheap enough that if an upgrade comes in the draft they can cut them without too much pain.
