On May 6, 2013, Whimper was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers.[1]

Guy was seen as extremely unlikely to make the Steeler's roster, much less play, and much less than that play well. Due to an injury by tackle Marcus Gilbert and poor play by OT Mike Adams, Guy played extensively against the Baltimore Ravens on October 20, and in the face of much skepticism, played well.[2] On Monday, March 17th, 2014, the Steelers re-signed Whimper to a one-year contract.
