Herbig went undrafted in 2019 and signed with the Eagles, playing 33 games, including 17 starts for Philly over three seasons. He then started 11 games for the Jets last season.
Herbig plays on the interior, playing mostly right guard for the Eagles. The Steelers currently have Kevin Dotson and James Daniels as their starting guards, but Dotson’s rookie contract will expire after the upcoming season.
J.C. Hassenaur, who was the team’s primary backup last season, is a free agent.
