The Pittsburgh Steelers should at least pretend to look at some of the free agents still left on the market.
There is a surprising amount of talent still out there. Why some of these guys have not found a home for 2013 yet is perplexing, but their bad luck could benefit PIttsburgh.
Of course, this is not the “Steeler way.” That entails making unremarkable free-agent signings and rebuilding through the draft and faith.
The biggest names the Steelers have acquired so far via free agency are Bruce Gradkowski, William Gay and LaRod Stephens-Howling. This is clearly not a team that gives much thought to free agency.
Pittsburgh did have brief flirtations with Ahmad Bradshaw and Elvis Dumervil earlier in the offseason. Considering it still has holes to fill, maybe it is time to dip back into the free agency pool.
What can it hurt to bring a veteran or two to training camp? The Steelers would be smart to at least give some of the remaining free agents a chance.
