A look at the Steelers' free agents

TAMPA, Fla. -- Patience is not a virtue for Steeler Nation.

After already posting the unrestricted free-agent list for three other teams in the division, I received several e-mails recently that I should do the same for the Steelers. If no one noticed, free-agent lists were not posted until the season was over for the other three teams. It was a way to get fans jumpstarted into the offseason.

But we will make an exception for Steelers fans since there is a long wait between now and the Super Bowl.

Here is the list of Pittsburgh's 2009 unrestricted free agents:
