For many NFL teams, free agency is a shopping spree.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, on the other hand, traditionally approach free agency as if they're shopping at the dollar store. They pick up a few role players or under-the-radar starters.

This year shouldn't be any different, especially considering the Steelers' salary-cap restrictions. The 2013 salary cap will be $123 million, according to ESPN.com. The Steelers figure to be right at that number, give or take a couple million.

Before they signed cornerback William Gay, the Steelers' top 51 contracts amounted to $120.3 million, according to Spotrac. Gay's cap hit in 2013 will be $1.16 million, according to Steel City Insider.

If the Steelers can clear a little more cap room before the free-agency signing period begins at 4 p.m. on March 12, there are several bargain free agents they could target.
