Steelers Six From Around The Web – Friday March 5th
Yesterday, Dan Gigler of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette posted some final thoughts and videos on free agents Ryan Clark, Willie Parker and DeShea Townsend. All three are now considered former Steelers and are free to sign elsewhere
Speaking of Willie, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already shown interest in Parker. It is still early in the game, but Tampa surely could be one of the few final destinations for FWP.
The Steelers are lining up a few free agent visitors of their own as 49ers free agent wide receiver Arnaz Battle is coming in for a visit this weekend to Pittsburgh.
Another player to be rumored to be on the Steelers radar is former New England Patriots free agent cornerback Leigh Bodden. The problem is that several teams are also interested in Bodden and the price tag will be too high for the Black and Gold.
Former Steelers wide receiver Antwaan Randle El was cut loose by the Redskins on Thursday. El signed a seven-year contract worth $31 million that included $11.5 million in bonuses following the Super Bowl 40 season.
The Fort Cherry alumni play the Pittsburgh Steelers basketball team tonight at 8 p.m. at Fort Cherry High School. Among the Steelers players scheduled to be there are James Harrison, Charlie Batch, Deshea Townsend and Rashard Mendenhall. It will be interesting if indeed Batch and Townsend are there as they both are free agents.
