According to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Twitter, free agent tackle Winston Justice is visiting with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday and is also scheduled to visit with the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday.
The Steelers did not draft an offensive lineman during the 2013 NFL draft, and even though they signed a handful of undrafted free agents afterwards, they still have question marks as far as depth goes on the offensive line.
Justice, who started 12 games with the Indianapolis Colts last season, after spending his first six seasons in the league with the Philadelphia Eagles, is a right tackle Read more [...]

The 2013 NFL draft is now behind us and the nine Pittsburgh Steelers draft picks will be present for rookie camp this coming weekend in Pittsburgh. Now that things have settled down, here is my look at what I expect this upcoming season for every member of the Steelers 2013 draft class.
Round 1 - OLB Jarvis Jones - At the very least, Jones should dress for every game and have...
Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that’s it’s possible that the Steelers drafted Landry Jones to take over for Ben Roethliserger at some point.
“Maybe they weren’t happy with what they had behind Ben and Bruce. That could be. But ultimately, I think this isn’t about replacing me. Big picture, maybe they’re thinking,...
Before I get into my thoughts on the 2013 draft, I want to review the players that were signed this offseason. Looking at the completed picture, I can see how the moves in free agency directly led to what positions were addressed in the draft. I am actually very impressed with the job that the Pittsburgh Steelers did in free agency for a normally dormant free...

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones won’t automatically start right away. Veteran Jason Worilds will compete with him.
“I think it’s a daunting task for rookies to start in any system and play and perform well,” said Tomlin. “Obviously it is difficult when you have established veteran players...
It is hard to read very much into the latest offensive depth chart on the official website of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but we will dissect it nonetheless.
For starters, Mike Adams is listed as the top right tackle as well as the backup at left tackle behind an empty spot. Head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the tackle spot during his pre draft press conference and would not commit...
Steelers LBs coach Keith Butler mentioned that it would be “miraculous” if last year’s third-round pick Sean Spence was able to continue his career in the NFL, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Spence, 22, suffered a terrible knee injury last season. He torn both his ACL and LCL while dislocating the knee, so there are some legitimate questions as to whether or not he’ll...
The Pittsburgh Steelers signed veteran punter Brian Mooreman today. He played for the Cowboys in 2012 after being released by the Bills. Mooreman spent his first 11 years in the NFL with the Bills.

It's proven a tough free agent market for veteran defensive lineman and linebackers, as several either remain unsigned or had to take significant pay cuts to reach new agreements. An example of this has been Indianapolis Colts free agent Dwight Freeney, who has been forced to lower his asking price since the offseason began, according to Jeff Legwold of The Denver Post.
Remember when Dwight Freeney and John Abraham visited Foxborough?
Yeah, that was over a month and a half ago, and neither have found teams. The reason? Despite the fact that both are aging veterans past their prime, they are looking for big pay days.
This hasn't been the best off-season for players looking for that, even a lot of guys in their prime have had to settle for...
