Default Free Agents

I haven't really looked into this yet, but I'm curious to know if there are any free agents in the league that you would be interested in seeing the Steelers try and sign.

For example, last year they signed Felix Jones and Stephens Howling to add to the depth at RB. I've heard rumors that they might be more interested this season in finding a player that will be able to come in and start. I was just curious to know what position, or if you have a specific player in mind, who you think the Steelers should pursue.

Default Re: Free Agents

I haven't really seen a list of all the pending free agents yet, but I would like for them to at least try to grab a decent CB or S. IMO this is the biggest area of need right now and I would like to see at least one FA pickup and then address the other position in one of the 1st two rounds of the draft.

Maybe if there is an appealing WR available as well. But like I said, I would have to see who is available first.

Dexter McCluster would be a nice pick up but it depends on the price

he looks like he would be a great pick-up, especially if we lose Sanders. He'd bring great value to special teams, anything would have to be better than Jones returning kicks. I would think he'd have to be cheaper to sign than Sanders as well.

And he played in Todd Haley offense so maybe Haley can recruit him to come here. He would be a returner, RB & WR, he could be a huge steal if this was to happen.

I like what I see of him, he's like a good version of Chris Rainey

I mean, I'd love to see Albert or Veldheer, but that's not realistic. Realistically, I'd love to see Lamarr Houston or Jermichael Finley.
