Galloway will be in Pittsburgh for a visit with the Steelers on Monday. Anyone think he would be a good replacement for the Nate Washington spot for a year at least? He's pretty old but still fast as hell...

REALLY?

He's definitely slippery, even as an older guy.

he put up numbers that blew away nate just 2 seasons ago. last year he had 13 catches. if he's healthy he is an upgrade that probably comes cheaper than nates old contract and is worth a look-see.

i would like holt better but this could be good.

Nope - not as a replacement for Nate, but maybe as a fill-in until Sweed and whoever the Steelers might draft this season come into their own (which I believe Sweed could very well do this season). Though he's been with a less than stellar team over the past couple of seasons (TB), I think Joey has slowed down some and is now a bit more injury prone than he was earlier in his career. If he'll sign a short term contract for vet minimum, why not?

exactly

he'll work for awhile, if he's healthy. thing is, he was pretty banged up last season

we'll see. obviously the rooney's see something in him

If we can get him for roughly the same amount we paid Nate last year ... I'd be glad to see this happen. With the exception of last year with the injury, it seems like he's had some of the best seasons of his pro career in the past few years. If he can do that again, he'd be a bargain.

I heard it from a buddy of mine who works for the Bucs and is tight with Galloway...that he definitely has a visit set up with the Steelers for this Monday. My buddy called to tell me this today because he knows I'm a Steeler fan and would be interested to know about it...so trust me its credible! It just hasn't been widely reported yet.

Personally I think he would be a good 1-yr fit for the Steelers, he is a deep ball threat just like Nate was, only Joey has better hands and is faster!

What Joey still has is speed. What we lost with Nate was the deep threat because of his speed.

I wouldn't mind Joey being signed for 1 year. But, if Sweed can't cut it as a #3 this year, it will be a huge disappointment.

The guy that has me intrigued going into camp at WR is Martin Nance.

He played here in Dallas from '00 to '03...he was pretty injury-prone back then.

Who knows though-if he's only the #3/#4 situational guy, not only he'll stay healthy, but also will be very effective as well.

FALSE-

the cowboys traded for an injured player who missed most of his first season but started 46 of 47 games after that.

they then let him go to the bucs where he blew away his numbers put up in dallas in 3 of his 45 years.

his numbers simply show that he has had injuries and is not injury prone.

Veteran WR Joey Galloway visits Patriots
Email|Link|Comments (57) Posted by Mike Reiss, Globe Staff March 4, 2009 11:30 PM

The Patriots have one of the strongest 1-2 wide receiver combinations in the NFL with Randy Moss and Wes Welker.

But whos No. 3?

The Patriots explored one possibility on a Wednesday free-agent visit at Gillette Stadium veteran Joey Galloway.

The 37-year-old Galloway has traditionally been regarded for his speed and high yards-per-catch average. Over his 14 seasons with Seattle (1995-99), Dallas (2000-2003) and Tampa Bay (2004-2008), hes averaged 15.5 yards per reception.

Last year, he appeared in nine games, with just four starts, and was limited to 13 catches for 138 yards.

The Patriots' depth at receiver took a hit when Jabar Gaffney -- the No. 3 option in 2008 -- signed with the Broncos.

The thing with Joey Galloway is that aside from the positives - forget his age, he still has blazing speed, and very good hands - he's rather one dimensional. He's not a very good downfield blocker, so having him on the field is like telling the defense "hey, we're going to pass the ball!" As far as agreeing to play for the vet minimum, the fact that he visited and left two other teams without a contract tells me he is looking to make more than that. The only questions remaining are how much more, and is he worth it?

According to Galloway's wikipedia page he's from Bellaire, OH which is on I-70 just past the WV panhandle. only 1.5 hrs from Pittsburgh. Maybe he's like to finish up close to home, be near family etc?

He may be shopping teams to see how much playing time he's get from them. Not sure that the Patsies really have a need for him as a speed guy. They maybe need a really good route runner to complement Moss and Welker.

That's exactly what I was thinking Steely. That along with the fact that Galloway and several other former OSU Buckeye players spend a lot of their off-season time in Columbus, Ohio, a short 3 hour drive from Pittsburgh.

I don't know what Galloway has left but I would rather see him on the Steelers sideline as opposed to Dallas Baker or ????. Hell I can't even name the Steelers 5th string WR????

I believe that the information is legit. If the Steelers want Galloway, then they're probably going to get him.

Which means we might be picking him up. I don't necessarily see any harm done by bringing him in for at least one year to see what he still has to offer. We won't pay that much for him so we might as well give him a chance. That just depends on how interested we are in him.

Bucs released WR Joey Galloway.
Galloway, 37, fell off the game-day roster last year after battling injuries all offseason and losing his starting job to Antonio Bryant. His release was inevitable and saves Tampa Bay a little bit of cap room.

Like Marvin Harrison, Galloway is going to struggle to find a job. His body is probably breaking down and he has little experience outside a West Coast offense.

2006 TB 16 62 1057
2007 TB 15 57 1014
2008 TB 9 13 138

Free agent Joey Galloway told Sirius NFL Radio Wednesday that he "absolutely" intends to play football in 2009.

"I feel great," he said. "I’ve started working out, preparing myself. I’m looking forward to the new challenge." It's hard to say what Galloway has left because he hardly played last season, but we're guessing it's not much.

Wide receiver Joey Galloway to visit Steelers
Buzz up!
By The Tribune-Review Monday, March 9, 2009

Wide receiver Joey Galloway, an unrestricted free agent, is meeting with the Steelers today at their South Side facility.

The 14th-year veteran played sparingly for the Buccaneers last season and caught 13 passes for 138 yards in nine games. Galloway, 37, has over 10,000 career receiving yards.

The Steelers have a need at wide receiver with the loss of Nate Washington, who signed with the Titans last season.

Galloway is the first free agent to visit the Steelers.

Galloway was our MVP on offense for about 3 seasons. Without him, we would have had nothing on offense.

Unfortunately, Galloway got an undeserved bad rap by stupid, fickle fans because he couldn't dominate games by himself.

On the one hand, if we could get him for vet minimum and he's as good as what's out there on the free agent market, maybe. But a 37-year old WR missing 7 games due to injury last year would concern me a lot if I were Kevin Colbert.

On the other hand, he had a 1,000-yard season in 2007, which isn't too shabby for someone getting up there in years.

From what I've read, he was popular with fans in Tampa and he seems to fit the Steeler profile of a high-character guy.

Coach Tomlin has a soft spot for guys he's worked with in the past, and it makes me wonder if this visit is part genuine interest and part courtesy to Joey. The Pats and the Bills passed on him -- of course, the Bills were aiming MUCH higher, as we now know :wink02: -- so it will be interesting to see how this shakes out.

There is no downside to this potential move. Yeah he's 37, but if we sign him it will be for the minimum. It's not like we're going to base the offense around him. He still has the speed to give us a deep threat. And as was stated earlier, him and Ward working with Sweed can only benefit us in the long run. I say go for it.

i live in the tampa area, so i've watched galloway for a few seasons here...

IF he is healthy, and he came for a discounted price, he would be an absolute STEAL - the kind of player the steelers grab in free agency that is talented and cost effective.

the previous 3 seasons he put up outstanding numbers, playing with mediocre qb's. if arians wants to run the 3 wide set, trust me, galloway could put up terrific numbers if his health allows him.

he has better hands than nate...runs better routes...has great speed. this excites me, but i'll believe it when i see it.

he has also visited new england and buffalo, yet didn't sign. at the time buffalo was desperate for a receiver (before T.O.) and new england makes smart decisions. wonder why neither of those 2 teams nabbed him?

health and money are the issues...

while i normally agree with that approach, this situation would be the exception. we have a super bowl winning roster right now.. if you can immediately improve that team at the expense of a prospect, then you do it... the window of opportunity closes just as fast as it opens. we are not building a team, the team is already built. i think it would be great if we got him because sweed is still a huge question mark and we are in a position to win now more so than later.

Congratulations on the scoop. I'll admit I was sceptical, but willing to wait a day and see. I do believe there are several folks that owe you an apology.


In regards to all the "sign him for the vet minimum" talk, I think we're being a bit unrealistic. A player at his age is just as likely to be looking for one last payday. Obviously Galloway, or any player, would prefer to play for a team that has a legitimate chance of winning the title. With all else being equal, most will choose the team expected to contend over one that is not. But I think we're being a bit delusional in our beliefs that so many are willing to take the physical pounding that an NFL player endures and accept hundreds of thousands, or even millions of fewer dollars in exchange for the opportunity (with no guarantee) of going to the Super Bowl.

Heck, I remember one time when he was on the ST's, Seattle punted the ball. THe camera followed the ball in the air. As it panned down to see the opposing team receiving the ball. . .

It was Joey Galloway standing there as if HE was the punt receiver. Arms down, relaxed. Just getting ready to catch it.

well here's what we know...he visited buffalo, who doesn't appear to be a threat as a contender, soooo i doubt he has a sb ring in mind...he left with no deal. he visits new england, who loves to recycle old players, because they're cheap....again no deal. to me this suggest he may be asking for a bit too much coin. if a ring was part of his agenda, then i doubt he'd have visited buffalo, and probably would've jumped on THE CHEATER'S OFFER. of course thats assumming there were offers. maybe the teams questioned his health.

.remember the sun. or mon. night game where he caught like 4 td's and about 200 yds from moon? they were fun to watch. very few threw a prettier ball than warren and galloway was perfect for his skills.

like MOP, im still scratching my head why he isnt a patriot. maybe he just told them he wants to visit with the steelers first and he'd get back with them. maybe he decided he just doesnt wanna work with a bunch of dicks.

anyways if we can get him for less than we paid nate and hes able to run, its an upgrade, and shaves off the cap.

a good solid move like when we signed terrence mathis for 1 year (his experience probably makes him more valuable as a possible back up for any of the x-y-z positions, as opposed to sweeeeed).

Yeah, what did the Titans sign 36 year old Eric Moulds for back in 2007?? I bet it wasnt much. Not always a big market on old veteran WR's that dont wanna retire. $1.5 million for Galloway seems about right.

Adding Galloway would make sense
http://nflfromthesidelines.blogspot.com/2009/03/adding-galloway-would-make-sense.html

When wide receiver Joey Galloway was released a couple of weeks ago by the Tampa Bay Bucs, I have to admit, I didn't see how the Steelers could be interested in a 37-year-old receiver who played in just nine games last season.

But with the Steelers bringing him in for a visit Monday, I began thinking about why they would be interested and it started to make sense.

First, Galloway won't be looking for any kind of long-term deal or big money. Those days are long past him.

The Bellaire, Ohio, native, would also get a chance to come back to his hometown area - it's located just across the Ohio River from Wheeling, W. Va. to finish off what has been a solid career while keeping the Steelers from relying solely on Limas Sweed as their No. 3.

Then there is the facat that as a former Ohio State star, he carries instant credibility with Santonio Holmes and could help further Holmes' maturation into a No. 1 receiver.

And finally, he also wouldn't challenge Hines Ward's "leader of the wideouts" role that he has given himself. The leader as he is affectionately called by the media likes to run the show with the receivers. Galloway won't challenge that.

In retrospect, after thinking about all of those things, this is a visit I should have seen coming.

http://www.examiner.com/x-2703-Pittsburgh-Sports-Examiner~y2009m3d9-Steeler-reportSteelers-host--wide-receiver-Joey-Galloway


Pittsburgh - The Steelers hosted a first free-agent on Monday, and it wasn't a cornerback.

Instead, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Joey Galloway visited team headquarters and is being looked at as a potential replacement for Nate Washington, who signed with the Titans last week.

Galloway, 37, visited the Buffalo Bills and also the New England Patriots, who are also in need of a No. 3 wide-out. Although in his late 30's, he still has good speed and is a potential deep threat every time he is on the field.

If the Steelers like what they see, they may have an edge over the Pats in signing the 14 year veteran. That's because there may be comfort zone. Head coach Mike Tomlin, was the Buccaneers secondary coach.

Galloway is a former 1995 No. 1 draft choice of the Seattle Seahawks, but only played in nine games last year for the Bucs because he had a foot injury. He had 13 catches for 138 yards and no touchdowns.

However, in 2007 he played in 15 games making 57 receptions for 1,014 yards and six touchdowns.He was also named a Pro Bowl alternate.

He is also just the second player to have three seasons of 1,000 yards with two different teams he did it in 1995 and 1997-98 with Seattle, and has averaged a touchdown every 8.9 receptions throughout his 14-year career.

Galloway visits Steelers, could be No. 3 receiver

Tuesday, March 10, 2009
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Joey Galloway is the first free agent the Steelers have entertained since free agency began Feb. 27, and he won't be the last.

Galloway, 37, visited the Steelers offices yesterday as the team began its search to find replacements for departed free agents, and more are expected to follow tomorrow.

After losing No. 3 receiver Nate Washington to the Tennessee Titans in free agency, the Steelers are looking at Galloway as insurance because they don't have any experienced wide receivers behind starters Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes.

A former No. 1 draft choice of the Seattle Seahawks in 1995, Galloway played five seasons in Tampa Bay, two of which while Mike Tomlin was the Buccaneers' secondary coach. Galloway has had six 1,000-yard receiving seasons in his 14-year NFL career, including three in a row from 2005-07 with the Buccaneers.

However, he was limited to 13 catches, 138 yards and no touchdowns in nine games last season because of a foot injury.

That, and his age -- Galloway will be 38 in November -- will likely limit his ability to get something other than a one-year contract for the veteran minimum. Galloway visited two other teams last week -- the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills -- after being released by the Buccaneers as part of a salary-cap purge.

The Steelers are hoping to persuade him he can be part of an opportunity to make another run at a Super Bowl championship. But they are convinced Galloway, who has been clocked at 4.3 in the 40-yard dash, still has the speed to be a viable part of their offense.

I heard a sports/talk show out-of Tampa this AM, and something was said that the Steelers were 'impressed with Galloway's speed at yesterday's work-out' :
that was the tail-end of that discussion, and I haven't heard anything-else lately.

The Steelers are reportedly "convinced" that free agent Joey Galloway can still run well enough to be a useful receiver.

Pittsburgh is only expected to offer a one-year deal for the veteran minimum, but Galloway won't get much more anywhere else. Galloway has already visited the Patriots. New England would give him a better chance to start.

I can understand wanting fair-market value for your skills. However, at some point, these guys have to understand that fair-market value diminishes with age in this job.

He's made enough money. Either he wants to play for the love of the game now, or he is going to retire. No team is going to give him a big contract. . . unless the Raiders are looking for a WR.

I am not reading through 140 posts to figure out what's been said.

If the price is cheap, he'll help open things up just a little bit more for Ward/Holmes...and could provide more vet presence for the young Sweed on how to play the game.

I think that, ultimately, it's going to come down to one of two things for Galloway..

Does he want to be paid big money...or play for a contender. Because, at the end of the day, those are the only two options he'll have.

Florida_Steelers_Fan
03-13-2009, 09:01 AM
there is no need to worry...this is the offseason, and if we're going to worry about whether or not an oft-injured, 38 year old wide receiver signs or not then we've got problems.

patience...i really believe that sweed is going to be fine.

anyone recall how we believed plaxico was a tragic mistake during his rookie season (the spike against jacksonsville on his first catch...oops!).

i think sweed was behind due to his wrist injury and i think he was pressing, wanting to show everyone he belonged here. i think he's a good kid who will learn from his mistakes and be just fine.

the steelers will find another wide receiver. they're going to be just fine...

Taylor, Galloway, Bodden

interesting signings. this and with brady back they should win that division easily

of course, it's all talk at this point

Fricking Patriots. See, that's how you go out and actually sign free agents who can help you in the offseason. And in the meantime, what do we do? We blow all our money on Starks and Kemo, which is about as productive as slamming your dick in a door. Say what you want about the Patriots, but we ought to be taking notes, because we got absolutely abused in free agency this year.

Having said that, I hope they all break their necks and al-Qaeda blows up their stadium.

IDK steelreserve, I'll take the two Super Bowls over the last 4 years over being the "best organization" in free agency any day. The Pats can remain the fantasy darlings of the NFL for all I care. None of that changes the fact that with the D they had last season they aren't winning crap. While I do agree we overpayed for Starks, we are hardly have as many needs as a team as the Pats do - whose D was over the hill two years ago.

Oh, I wouldn't trade places with them as a franchise, no way. And over the long run, we make mostly right moves with contracts, free agency, etc.

However, this year, we shot ourselves in the foot. We spent a lot of money and actually made the team worse. We might have a generally sound approach to free agency over the long term, and we went into the offseason with a better team than them too. But this was one of the years when we did poorly with personnel management and the good years have to average it out. Because I cannot stress enough that we absolutely got our asses handed to us.
