2018 Remaining NFL Free Agents: Who’s left, should a Steelers need to supplement to their roster

The free-agent frenzy in a NFL typically happens in March, yet with (give or take a week) 6 weeks left before a start of training camp, there’s a full line-up of really means players that now do not have NFL jobs. These group can be viable additions to any one of a 32 NFL teams, depending on their specific needs. Just like everybody else, The Pittsburgh Steelers are not a finish team. They need to accommodate their possess really specific mandate if they wish to go all a approach in 2018. Perhaps one of these group can assistance Kevin Colbert, Mike Tomlin and company.

BTSC examines a accessible players during any position that could be possibilities for a Pittsburgh Steelers. In some cases, they don’t have needs during that position. However in this initial installment, we will inspect a descent side of a round and either or not they would be a picturesque and useful choice for a Black-and-gold. With a income top space always being an issue, we comprehend that not any actor would be a possibility. But a following are a best during any position that giveaway group has to offer during this late juncture.


Best Remaining: Colin Kaepernick – San Francisco

Other Options: Jay Cutler – Miami

The Steelers are not going to supplement a vigilance tourist by giveaway agency, generally after trade adult for Mason Rudolph and adding him to a fast that includes Ben Roethlisberger, Landry Jones and Joshua Dobbs. If for some remote, bizarro reason they would, it certainly wouldn’t be a maestro Cutler, who starts tire fires everywhere he goes — or Kaepernick and a PR issues that would follow.

Running Backs

Best Remaining: DeMarco Murray – Tennessee

Other Options: Orleans DarkwaNew York Giants, Adrian Peterson – Arizona, Alfred Morris – Dallas, Terrance West – Baltimore

It appears a Steelers are still banking on a late-arriving Le’Veon Bell to be in uniform on Week 1. While one wouldn’t design No. 26 to stubbornly pass on $14.5 Million, zero would warn me. If a Steelers were to event on income and play on a backup devise for Bell, Murray would be a decent addition. The former Cowboy, Eagle and Titan had a down year with usually a 3.6 ypc in 2017, yet a 30-year aged would advantage from a stellar descent line and a manly receiving stable. For now, it seems a Steelers are calm to mount pat with a guarantee of Bell, James Conner, Fitz Toussaint, Stevan Ridley and Jaylen Samuels.

Wide Receivers

Best Remaining: Dez Bryant – Dallas

Other Options: Eric Decker – Tennessee, Dontrelle Inman – Chicago, Jeremy Maclin – Baltimore

Here’s another conditions where, if a Steelers would add, it would particularly be veteran-minimum depth. That’s not anywhere nearby Bryant’s zip code, even yet a siren dream of adding him along with AB, JuJu and James Washington would be mind-blowing. Eric Decker (54 rec/563 yards) would be a good maestro supplement here, yet we see a Steelers giving Justin Hunter most some-more of an event in this high-powered attack.

Tight Ends

Best Remaining: Antonio GatesLos Angeles Chargers

Other Options: Coby Fleener – New Orleans, Brent Celek – Philadelphia, Julius Thomas – Miami

If Vance McDonald stays healthy and accessible for 16 games, a former second-rounder could be a vital arms for a Steelers. The awaiting of that is adult in a atmosphere after final deteriorate though. The guys on this list aren’t any improved than McDonald, Jesse James and Xavier Grimble. But adding a participation such as a ring-driven Gates (30 rec/316 yards)for one year, would be fun.

Offensive Line

Best Remaining: G Alex Boone – Arizona

Other Options: G Luke Joeckel – Seattle, G Jahri Evans – Green Bay, OT Will Beatty – Philadelphia, G Richie Incognito – Buffalo

With 3 of a 5 starters (David DeCastro, Alejandro Villanueva and Maurkice Pouncey) comparison to a Pro Bowl in 2017, we wouldn’t consider that this fast needs most help. But with “the Munch Bunch” removing long-in-the-tooth, abyss could be an issue. Jerald Hawkins went down in OTAs and with Chris Hubbard in Cleveland, a Steelers drafted Chuks Okotafor and only brought in a journeyman Bryce Harris this week. we don’t see a Steelers bringing a higher-priced/high-problem man like Incognito or a shabby Evans in. Boone is solid, yet a income is substantially best spent elsewhere.

Will a Steelers make any some-more moves or stay put? Stick with BTSC for not only all of a offseason news, yet for a relapse of a defensive players on this list, as well.
