Anyone you'd like the Steelers to target in FA?

Here's some guys I'd consider (aka maybe we can afford them) and it depends on what happens with our own guys:

Matt Moore
Shonn Greene
Chris Ivory (RFA)
Dwayne Bowe
Josh Cribbs
Brian Hartline
Jared Cook
Dustin Keller
Tracy Porter
Laron Landry

It depends really on the draft. If we can't get a legitimate RB in this upcoming draft, what RB is available in FA?

Barely enough money to sign our own RFAs. Not sure we bring anyone in who we could afford. Bowe is the only one on that list that would be a great add and he will be more than resigning Wallace since he is much better than Wallace.

Look at their numbers over the last 3 years. Wallace has had better QB play, but he's also put up better numbers. Bowe has some consistency issues.

On the open market, I bet that Wallace gets more money than Bowe.

Bowe has trouble over the middle. Has alligator arms.

Here's a link to 2013 FAs. They're listed by position.

Justin Forsett & mike Goodson are interesting.

Wallace won't go over the middle.
Bowe had who throwing him the ball the last 3 years?

I'd consider Goodson. If given the opportunity, I think he could potentially be a pretty good back. Not sure what Forsett brings that we can't potentially get from Rainey.

Rainey is not an NFL caliber RB.
What a shame they dress him just to return KO's

I think he could be a good 3rd down back out of the Kevin Faulk mold if our OC would design plays with swing passes.

Rainey can get better if used right. Also just like when people cried about Logan. He is still only a returner and in the NFL.
