The Steelers to host a native son in hopes of signing him.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are hosting a native son in the hopes of addressing depth at a necessary position.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Steelers recently hosted free-agent offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski for a visit. The former Oakland Raider and Jacksonville Jaguar is one of the most versatile free agents remaining on the market.

The 27-year-old is equally adept at playing center or guard, and would be an asset to a strong Steelers offensive line that battled through injuries in 2015.

He has also been extremely durable throughout his career.

The 6'3, 295-pound Wisniewski has started every game he's played in since being drafted by the Raiders in 2011, and has missed only three games due to injury. Wisniewski started every game at center last season for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Although Maurkice Pouncey is arguably the NFL's premier center, Wisniewski could be the team's contingency plan against injury, and the veteran offensive lineman could carve a role elsewhere on the line.
