In about a month, the new league year will begin and with it the start of 2020 Free Agency. The Pittsburgh Steelers have a few notable names hitting the unrestricted market this year. Among those names is DT Javon Hargrave.
It was just announced on Twitter that Hargrave has signed with Rosenhaus Sports Representation and Drew Rosenhaus will now serve as his agent.

Steelers fans should be familiar with this name as he has represented several former and current members of the organization. Most notably, Antonio Brown, who he recently cut ties with following a string of PR nightmares.
Javon Hargrave saw extra reps this year with Stephon Tuitt going onto the injured reserve after a week 6 victory against the Los Angeles Chargers. This increased opportunity came at just the right time for Hargrave, who is set to get a big pay day in March. While I am sure the Steelers would love to retain him, it does not seem financially feasible. Especially with the Steelers announcing their intentions to retain other big-money free agent, Bud Dupree.
