The NFL free-agency period begins on March 11. It is typically a frenetic stretch of activity where teams look to add and remove players in hopes of building a contending roster.

One thing that is close to certain when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers is that they typically aren’t serious buyers in the market. The front office is confident and does not typically allow emotion to get in the way of its moves.

Searching through the headlines, you won’t find a lot of pre-emptive movement by the Steelers. This is a franchise that typically keeps things close to the vest and isn’t known for splash moves. The 2014 version of the Steelers is no different.
