I guess they are looking at some low cost veterans in case they cannot find what they are looking for in the draft.

I wonder if Willy Gay gave him a recommendation.

Need insurance in case Golden doesn't pan out.

We lost Will Allen and Ryan Mundy. We're thin at Safety.

Steelers meet free agents, trying to fill specific gaps

March 29, 2013

The Steelers met with two more free agents Thursday but so far they remain free agents.

Halfback Ahmad Bradshaw and safety James Sanders spent time at their South Side facility.

Bradshaw, who is recovering from surgery on a broken right foot that has pestered him for the past two seasons, underwent a physical.

Despite his foot problem, Bradshaw, 27, rushed for 1,015 yards in 2012 with a 4.6-yard average per carry for the New York Giants.

Sanders, 29, played six seasons for the Patriots after they drafted him in the fourth round in 2005 from Fresno State.

While playing for New England in 2010, Sanders intercepted Ben Roethlisberger and returned it 32 yards for a touchdown in the Patriots' 39-26 victory at Heinz Field.

The Steelers lost both of their veteran backup safeties in free agency, Ryan Mundy to the New York Giants and Will Allen to the Dallas Cowboys.

More Steelers

The Steelers will hold their latest mandatory minicamp June 11-13 and have chosen their 10 OTA workout dates as May 21-23, May 28-30, and June 3-6. ... Free-agent linebacker Victor Butler, who visited the Steelers two weeks ago, signed a contract with the Saints.
