While the Steelers roster is mostly set, any of these four big-name free agents would make a lot of sense for the team in 2022.

The Steelers are just a few weeks away from training camp, and while their roster is already mostly set, there are still holes that could be filled. With a plethora of free agent names still available, the team could bring in a key name to help fill out this depth chart.

Here are four big-name free agents that make the most sense for the Steelers before training camp begins.

Steelers should sign Fuller

While the Steelers receiving room underwent a major shift this offseason. Gone are the established names that made up this group for the past few seasons and in are some exciting, albeit very unproven, new names. While the team is set along the outside for receivers, the slot is a different story.

As of now, Anthony Miller is likely the best fit there out of their current options, but a free agent could fix that. At one point in time, Will Fuller was seen as an up-and-coming receiver in the league. Gifted with great speed and sharp route running, Fuller became a great secondary target in Houston. Injuries and a forgettable stint with the Dolphins last year has him still available this late in the offseason.

If the Steelers brought him in, he could comfortably work the slot while some of their younger weapons get up to speed. Ideally, Calvin Austin will eventually be that guy, but expecting him to be ready by week one is a stretch. Fuller is a proven option who would be a fine slot guy this season until the rest of the roster catches up.
