The Pittsburgh Steelers are chugging along in their offseason full of insanity.
With numerous players on the docket for both re-signings and contract extensions, not to mention the annual buzz of free agency and the draft, the team is getting the easy stuff done while they can.
According to reports, the team is signing young linebacker Anthony Chickillo to a one-year deal to remain with the team.

Chickillo, the 24-year-old linebacker who the team selected with a sixth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, has been solid for the team in his two years in the league. Mostly a fixture on special teams, he has also been a solid depth player for the Steelers linebacker corps.
With him locked up in the short-term, the team can begin to focus on the big names like Lawrence Timmons, Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell.
