Dumpster diving for realistic Steelers free agent options

With Free Agency set to open up and the Steelers sitting with minimal salary cap space, don’t expect the team to make a lot of splashes this year. That said, the team has a way of sifting through the rubble and finding value in free agents with minimal contracts.

Take 2014 for example; while the team landed big-time free agent safety Mike Mitchell to a 5 year, 25-million-dollar contract, they also signed three key players to veteran minimum contracts. Darrius Heyward-Bey, Brice McCain, and Arthur Moats all landed with the team and became pivotal players.
