With the 2014 free agency signing period quickly approaching, we are taking a look back at the Pittsburgh Steelers free agent signings dating back to 2000, when Kevin Colbert became the general manager.
So far we have recapped the first three years of Colbert's tenure in Pittsburgh and today we will look at what happened in free agency prior to the 2003 season. Please keep in mind that these free agent signing recaps will be limited to only free agents from other teams that were signed prior to June 1st of that offseason as those are the ones that count when determining whether or not a team a team receives compensatory draft picks. The ones that are usually signed after that date are pretty much cheap, one or two year deals for the most part.
During the 2003 offseason, the Steelers only signed two free agents from other teams and below is a quick recap of those signings. The salary cap for the 2003 season was $75.007 million.
