The Cardinals and GM Steve Keim knew that they would need free agency and the draft to help fix a roster that won only three games. Feiler, a guard when he entered the National Football League, received positive reviews from teammates and coaches about how well he filled in for Gilbert.

The Arizona Cardinals have traded a sixth-round pick in 2019 to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Friday. Two are in the first six selections of the round and the third is a compensatory pick.

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey, who was entering the final year of the $44 million deal he signed in 2014, to a deal that runs through 2021 and will pay him $11 million in 2020 and 2021. He started 87 games during his career and is still a very good offensive tackle.

The Steelers selected Gilbert in the second round of the 2011 draft out of Florida and he immediately made an impact, starting 13 games in his rookie season. The offensive tackle was plagued by a hamstring injury during the 2017 season was suspended four games near the end of the season for violating the league policy against performance-enhancing substances.

Also on Friday, the Cardinals announced they have released veteran safety Antoine Bethea and quarterback Mike Glennon.
