Remaining Free Agent options that the Steelers need to sign
Even with most of their needs filled, there are quite a few free agents the Steelers should look into signing to better the team in 2020.
While the Steelers have already had a successful free agency period, there are still moves that can be made to fill out this roster. While the Steelers still have the draft to help fill a lot of these holes, the free-agent market is ripe with options that could come in and either help bridge the gap for a rookie or even take drafting the position off the board entirely.
While big names like Jadeveon Clowney are still available, the type of contract he would sign would be well out of the Steelers price range. This list will only target players that would realistically be options for the Steelers. As well, the targeted players will be at positions of need or positions that could frankly use the depth. To reiterate, this isn’t a list of the best free-agents remaining on the market, it is a list of the best free agents that are realistic options for the Steelers.
Also worth noting, these guys contracts would have to follow the typical guidelines for how the Steelers do deals. Typically, the only 1-year deals the Steelers give are for the minimum (they don’t do 1-year “prove it” deals like a lot of other teams do).
If the Steelers were to go after one of these guys below and sign them to an above the minimum salary, they would be for a Mark Barron/Eric Ebron type of deal (a 2-year deal that the team can get out of after the first season, essentially making it a 1-year deal).
