There has been speculation in the past couple weeks that the Steelers may get a long-term deal done with tackle Marcus Gilbert. According to Pittsburgh Post Gazette's Ed Bouchette, this may develop into more than just speculation. Gilbert, a former second round pick, has been inconsistent thus far in his career. Forced into the starting lineup week 2 of the 2011 season after Willie Colon went down, Gilbert has seen extensive time at the right tackle position in his young career.
