It did not take long for Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman John Leglue to make a good first impression.
Coming in relief for an injured B.J. Finney, Leglue seized the opportunity and put together a strong performance in their Week 12 win over the Baltimore Ravens, a performance that drew rave reviews from head coach Mike Tomlin.
For the undrafted journeyman, he has come a long way from being waived and added to the practice squad after their last wave of cuts on August 31st, 2021. Instead, Leglue would go on to make his first career start the following week against the Minnesota Vikings, and start three more times before the end of the season.
Despite having his ups and downs, Leglue managed to allow no sacks on 406 offensive snaps and a respectable total grade of 57.1 according to Pro Football Focus.
Even with the new additions made to the Steelers' offensive line unit so far this offseason, Leglue should remain an integral part of their depth, as his position versatility enables him to play different spots. If the moment were to arise again this upcoming season, one should count on Leglue to be called up to give them the support needed to help them be successful.
