Eric Rowe was the No. 2 cornerback in New England until missing the final 12 games of the season. Now, the question is whether or not the Patriots are going to retain him next season. If they don’t, the 26-year-old is the perfect fit and price range for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Rowe has the size and strength to play outside. At 6’1, the cornerback could be a valuable No. 2 for the Steelers, working with Haden and Hilton to continue to develop his skills.
Rowe in Pittsburgh would work well. If he can stay healthy and find his way to free agency, he’ll end up on the Steelers’ free agent list. At the right price, there should be no hesitation for Pittsburgh to go out and grab the Patriots’ former cornerback.
