NFL Rumors: The Loudest Draft and Free Agency Buzz for Every Team

BY NICK KOSTORA (FEATURED COLUMNIST) ON FEBRUARY 28, 2013
Pittsburgh Steelers
USA TODAY Sports



The Pittsburgh Steelers have been hard at work trying to get under the salary cap heading into the 2013 season, and superstar players on the roster are coming to the rescue.

It has been reported that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wide receiver Antonio Brown and linebacker Lawrence Timmons have all taken significant pay cuts in order to help the organization.

With all the work needed to get under the salary cap, the Steelers likely won't have much, if any, money to spend on potential free agents. The only potential in that arena comes from wide receiver Steve Breaston, who will visit with the team Thursday.

This means that the bulk of Pittsburgh's offseason additions will come via the draft.

ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley has speculated that the Steelers will look towards a feature back in the first couple rounds, potentially targeting players like Eddie Lacy from Alabama, Montee Ball from Wisconsin, Le'veon Bell from Michigan State and Marcus Lattimore from South Carolina.
