Chances he’s signed: 25 percent
The Steelers don’t really ever make much of a splash in the free-agent market, but that hasn’t always been the case. At various points, Pittsburgh added players like Kevin Greene and James Farrior that helped lead the team to Super Bowls.
With the team’s recent lack of success, it may turn back to free agents to help aid them in their quest to return to the postseason.
One relatively affordable option should be former Dolphins nose tackle Paul Soliai.
At age 30, Soliai is certainly no spring chicken, but he’s still one of the better nose tackles in the game. Soliai is fantastic at the point of attack and can eat up blockers. That’s something the team missed this season after letting Casey Hampton walk.
Again, the Steelers, like most seasons, probably won’t be strong players in the free-agent market. But if the Dolphins let Soliai test the waters, I expect the Steelers would have some serious interest.
