The one-time Pro Bowl left tackle previously visited with the Lions and Giants, according to reports, and the Seahawks reportedly also have competition from the rival 49ers for their 2010 first-round pick’s services.
Okung, who is coming off shoulder surgery and serving as his own agent in negotiations, essentially confirmed his visit with the Steelers on Sunday with a pair of pictures posted on his Twitter account – one of the team’s six Super Bowl trophies, and another with Steelers free-agent offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum. Interestingly enough, Beachum reportedly has a visit scheduled with the Seahawks on Monday.
With Okung reportedly meeting with the Titans, something worth noting is that the 28 year old grew up in the Houston area. The Texans have already made a big splash this offseason, signing Brock Osweiler to be their quarterback.
