More like "welcome back" than "welcome," the Steelers once again have not made a big signing in free agency. Their best move was bringing back corner Ike Taylor on a four year deal that seems to seal the fact that he'll finish his career here. They also did a nice job bringing Willie Colon back on a long-term deal. If he's healthy, he could be a major piece of their offensive line for several years.
With some very tempting kickers available via free agency, the Steelers instead went with Shaun Suisham, who filled in admirably last season once Jeff Reed was cut. While Suisham was pretty accurate, his lack of a strong leg is a major concern. Plus, he's been incredibly streaky over his career, not exactly the kind of guy you want kicking in one of the most difficult stadiums in the NFL.
The Steelers haven't replaced backup tight end Matt Spaeth, who went to Chicago, either. Nor do they have anything consistent at punter, where Jeremy Kapinos will battle rookie Aaron Bates.
There are still holes here. There seems to be a lot of openings along the offensive line, but bringing back tackle Jonathan Scott also seems to be the wrong answer.
This is just an area where a lot could have been done, but just didn't materialize. As a result, this was probably the worst performance of the offseason.
