Pittsburgh Steelers are trading starting offensive lineman Kevin Dotson to the Los Angeles Rams.

The trade marks the end of Dotson’s three-year tenure with the Steelers, as he embarks on a new journey in Los Angeles.

Dotson, who started all 17 games for the Steelers last year and 30 since entering the league, had been working with the second team during this year’s training camp, leading to speculation about his role in the upcoming season.

The Rams, known for their issues with the offensive line play, have acquired Dotson in hopes of bolstering their depth at the position.

According to ESPN’s Brooke Pryor, the trade involved a swap of draft picks.

The Steelers will receive the Rams’ fourth-round pick in the 2024 draft, while the Rams will acquire the Steelers’ fifth-round pick. In 2025, the Steelers will gain the Rams’ fifth-round selection, while the Rams will obtain the Steelers’ sixth-round pick.

Kevin Dotson, a fourth-round draft pick in 2020, has spent his entire career with the Steelers.

As he enters the final season of his rookie contract, Dotson will earn a base salary of $2.7 million during this season with the Rams.
