No one will ever confuse the Pittsburgh Steelers with the big spenders in free agency. They invest money in their own players and are very conservative in the open market.
The lack of cap space is the major reason that the Steelers will be quiet in free agency, but Casey Hampton helped free up some room with the pay cut that he accepted today.
Hampton's reduction in salary helped free up $3.09 million in cap space according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac.
With the limited amount to work with, Pittsburgh will have to be wise with its spending. That should not be much of an issue as they only will address depth issues with any outside signings.
So where will the Steelers look to in free agency? Here are five positions that they may look to sign a free agent to add depth.
