The Pittsburgh Steelers enter the 2014 offseason with a whopping 22 free agents set to hit the open market. That will make for some interesting decisions for the front office.
Last season, the Steelers had 19 new players that were not on the roster in 2012. It may be a similar roster turnover for 2014 as general manager Kevin Colbert tries to rebuild the talent base.
Several key free agents include long-time defensive starters and leaders Brett Keisel and Ryan Clark. Jerricho Cotchery—who led the team with 10 touchdown receptions—is also slated to hit the open market as are Jason Worilds and Ziggy Hood.
So what should we expect from Colbert and company? I will examine which players they should keep, which they should let walk and if there is any player worth a tag.
