Steelers Unrestricted and Restricted Free Agents; Who Stays and Goes?

Here’s the official list of the unrestricted and restricted free agents for the Steelers as the free agency period kicks off on Tuesday.

Unrestricted:
Tackle Willie Colon
Defensive End Nick Eason
Guard Trai Essex
Linbacker Keyaron Fox
Cornerback William Gay
Nose Tackle Chris Hoke
Defensive Back Anthony Madison
Running Back Mewelde Moore
Tackle Jonathan Scott
Punter Daniel Sepulveda
Tight End Matt Spaeth
Kicker Shaun Suisham
Defensive Back Ike Taylor
Long Snapper Greg Warren

Restricted:

Quarterback Dennis Dixon
Tackle Tony Hills

Right away the name that sticks out is Taylor. The team wants him back, and while the rumor is that the Eagles will take a long look at him, the Steelers will reach out to him and offer him a solid deal. If he takes it is another story.

Willie Colon is another solid name on the list, but his own agent has already said the Steelers haven’t reached out to his client, and it sounds like he will be on another team in 2011, which is a shame as he was playing well before getting hurt before last season.

It’s odd to see two kickers on the list, with both place kicker Shaun Suisham and punter Daniel Sepulveda able to go wherever they please. My bet is they ink them both, as Suisham kicked well after the team dumped Jeff Reed. The club likes what Sepulveda does when he’s 100 percent, but that’s been his issue.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL. On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others. Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.
