Steelers OT Dan Moore Jr. Gets over $740k in performance-based pay

In 2023, Pittsburgh Steelers starting left tackle Dan Moore Jr. made $1,114,476 in salary. But as a former fourth-round NFL draft pick still playing on his rookie contract, the league awarded Moore $740,319 in additional salary as part of its performance-based pay program.

This isn’t to say Moore played well because he didn’t. However, Moore played 951 offensive snaps last season as the Steelers starting left tackle. According to Pro Football Focus, Moore was one of the worst qualifying offensive tackles in the NFL in pass blocking with a grade of only 39.7.

Pittsburgh has been actively scouting offensive tackles for the 2024 NFL draft which is a good sign the Steelers aren’t sold on Moore as the team’s long-term solution at offensive tackle.
