The Steelers have 15 players who could become unrestricted free agents under the old CBA which will expire on March 3rd. As of now, the biggest names on the list for the black and gold include linebacker LaMarr Woodley, cornerback Ike Taylor and offensive tackle Willie Colon.
One of the lesser free agents, but a guy that has actually started some “brief talks” for a new contract is offensive tackle Jonathan Scott. The Post-Gazette reports that Scott’s agent, Jordan Woy, has confirmed the two sides have spoken, but have not talked price for the tackle.
Scott played a big part in the Steelers success in the 2010 season, as he started the final 11 games, including all three in the postseason. Scott played at left tackle for injured Max Starks. He signed a one-year contract in 2010 as a free agent from Buffalo.
At the end of the day, Scott may not be a big name free agent, but he’s exactly the type of guy that the Steelers sign, and is successful in the teams system.
