Could Vikings LB Erin Henderson Be A Cheap Free Agent Prospect For The Steelers?

Let me start of this post by saying that I will be very surprised if the Pittsburgh Steelers add a big name via free agency this offseason. It just isn't something that they normally do and being up against the salary cap this offseason won't help change that this offseason. Even experienced smaller name free agent additions would be quite surprisi...

Former Steelers Linebacker James Farrior’s Agent Says ‘Waiting For a Championship Opportunity’

Photo

Following up on a story we ran Friday in regards to the possibility of former Steelers linebacker James Farrior retiring, his agent, Ralph Cindrich, responded to a question posed via Twitter about it.

Cindrich's response suggested Farrior, the 13 year veteran, is waiting for a "championship opportunity."

Will one of those present itself for Farrior? It's an interesting question.

Whether it will happen remains to be seen, obviously, but one team I can think of that loves players in these situations is the New England Patriots.

Few teams in the league look to sign veteran free agents facing the twilight of their careers as much as the Patriots do. They've recently gotten high production out of DE Kevin Carter and OG Brian Waters. This year, they've brought in WR Brandon Lloyd, OG Robert Gallery and RB Joseph Addai, recently of the St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts, respectively. Even going back a few years, there's LB Junior Seau, WR Deion Branch and WR Jabar Gaffney.

The Patriots spent what seemed to be 45 draft picks on defensive players, including three of their first four picks addressing the front seven (DE Chandler Jones, ILB Dont'a Hightower and DE Jake Bequette). The Patriots have also built themselves to become versatile enough to play a variety of different looks in their front seven, depending on the situation.

It wouldn't be surprising if the Patriots, come training camp, took Farrior out for a test drive, and the Patriots, the defending AFC champions, certainly fit the title contender status Cindrich says Farrior is looking for.

Rookie Free Agent Brandon Lindsey Looks to Catch On with Steelers

From: AP

Brandon Lindsey spent last weekend gathered in a room with his family waiting for the phone to ring.

The former Pitt linebacker didn’t expect to hear his name called in the first round of the NFL draft, or the second.

Then the third round passed. Then the fourth. Then the fifth.

At that point, Lindsey grabbed the remote and turned the TV off.

“I didn’t want to hear it anymore,” Lindsey said.

Instead he turned his attention to figuring out where he wanted to sign as a rookie free agent. The answer was stunningly obvious.

Lindsey spent five years in the same building as the Steelers, practicing on the same expanse along the Monongahela River. He often wondered what it would be like to walk through the door on the left — which leads to the Steelers headquarters — instead of the one on the right that leads to Pitt’s football offices.

The reality is even better than he imagined.

“I’d been over here before but it’s nothing like when you’re a part of the organization,” he said. “Now you know you’re a part of their team and it’s a great feeling.”

One that is in stark contrast to the roller coaster Lindsey rode during his final year with the Panthers, who went through four head coaches — and a couple of interim ones — in the span of 14 months.

Lindsey was a second-team All-Big East selection at defensive end under Dave Wannstedt in 2010, only to see the coach who recruited him let go, leading to a series of missteps that culminated in Todd Graham bolting Pitt after just one season for Arizona State.

All that tumult hurt the Panthers on the field, and perhaps the professional prospects of the seniors. The draft came and went without a Pitt player being selected, the first time that’s happened since 1999.

“I think it hurt us just not having the sense of home,” Lindsey said. “We didn’t feel like we had a place we belonged. You go from one system to the next to another one. It’s hard for any 21, 22-year-old to get used to losing your coach two years in a row.”

Lindsey did his best to pitch in during Graham’s brief tenure, moving from end to “Panther” linebacker, a hybrid position that gave him the freedom to either stand up or get down in a stance on a given play.

All that shuffling around, however, came with great responsibility. Perhaps too much. Lindsey’s sack total dipped a bit to 8 1/2, though his presence freed up things for the guys in front of him. Defensive linemen Aaron Donald and Chas Alexcih combined for 17 1/2 sacks while linemen keyed on Lindsey.

Though Lindsey believes switching positions “hurt my production” it also gave him perspective.

“I tried to make the best out of a bad situation,” he said.

The constant moving made it difficult for NFL teams to project Lindsey at the next level. Does he pack on 30 pounds on his 6-foot-2, 250-pound frame to play end or drop a little weight to play outside linebacker?

The Steelers will have Lindsey stand up and try to find a spot behind veterans James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley.
