Foster And Steelers Agree To A Three-Year Deal

In a move that comes off very surprising, the Steelers have reached agreement on a three-year deal with guard Ramon Foster. Foster was scheduled to hit the free agent market Tuesday. He’s been the team’s most dependable offensive lineman since becoming a starter in 2010 and again in 2011 — never missing a start in [...]...

Steelers’ Jonathan Dwyer forgoes free agency, signs tender

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer has opted to take the guess work about where he'll be next year, signing his tender with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He would've became a restricted free agent as of 4pm Tuesday. With Rashard Mendenhall's future uncertain in Pittsburgh, Dwyer is stepping up to the plate in his quest to become the team'...

Steelers should target Shonn Greene

The Steelers need help at the running back (RB) position in a bad way.  That is why the Steelers should target Shonn Greene in free agency (FA).

Steelers General Manager (GM), Kevin Colbert described last years running game:

"It was indicative of the talent at the position.”

Ouch, that is some harsh (but true) analysis of the Steelers running back situation.  In addition to that, the Steelers will not sign previous first round pick and unrestricted free agent (UFA) Rashard Mendenhall to an extension and both Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman are restricted free agents (RFA).

To summarize:

  • The Steelers will lose starting running, Rashard Mendenhall in free agency.  This was a bust of a 1st round pick.
  • Backup running backs, Dwyer and Redman could also be lost but they did sign their RFA tenders
  • The Steelers should try to sign Shonn Greene of the New York Jets.

The Steelers have a lot of needs to fill in the upcoming 2013 draft.  Running back should be addressed in both FA and the draft via a mid round pick (Marcus Lattimore anybody?).

Shonn Greene could be a typical "low key" Steelers free agency signing and could start from day 1.   Here are some Shonn Greene stats:

Dolphins think Vikings may offer Mike Wallace $13 million a year

The Dolphins have long been viewed as the favorites to land receiver ex-Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace. But interest from the Vikings will make Wallace expensive. We’ve already noted that the Vikings’ decision to trade receiver Percy Harvin to the Seahawks makes Minnesota a potential landing spot for Wallace and other free agent re...
