The Pittsburgh Steelers had a lot of departures this offseason. They lost running back Le’Veon Bell to the Jets, and receiver Antonio Brown to the Raiders. The media coverage of the Bell and Brown sagas was endless, and you’d be forgiven for forgetting anything else about the Steelers.
But despite what you’d be led to believe, there were other significant happenings for Pittsburgh this offseason that didn’t involve Bell or Brown. The team also lost longtime offensive line coach Mike Munchak, who left to take the same position with the Denver Broncos. Munchak wanted to go somewhere he could be closer to his family, and his contract was up.
Unfortunately for the Steelers, it’s a pretty massive loss. During a recent radio appearance, Chris Mortensen of ESPN revealed that the Steelers were still hurting over the loss months later.
