What exactly in the Steeler's modus operandi leads you to believe they are going to rebuild or sure up this team through FA?

I didn't say this was a strategy to build a championship team, it's going to be a necessesity to fill open roster spots. We could see as many as 10-15 or more players leave or be cut this off-season, and have seven draft picks. Do the math.

And it will be about the same next year when we have 20 contracts expiring

And I didn't say "strategy to build a championship team." I said, to put it another way, "When have the Steelers ever used signing a bunch of free agents as their strategy?" There are other ways to sign players....Sure, they will need a few FA's but that will not be central to their plan.
