Steelers Free Agent Class, 2009

The great folks at Pro Football Weekly have been good enough to compile a list of players who will, potentially, become free agents this offseason.

Naturally we are concerned primarily with players currently playing in Pittsburgh who fit into that category; and the list is pretty long including two quarterbacks, three cornerbacks, and four offensive tackles (UFA= Unrestricted Free Agent; RFA= Restricted Free Agent):

  1. Charlie Batch, UFA
  2. Byron Leftwich, UFA
Tight Ends
    Sean McHugh, UFA
Wide Receivers
  1. Nate Washington, UFA
Offensive Guards
  1. Chris Kemoeatu UFA
Offensive Tackles
  1. Willie Colon, RFA
  2. Trai Essex, UFA
  3. Marvel Smith, UFA
  4. Max Starks, UFA
Defensive Ends
  1. Orpheus Roye, UFA
  1. Keyaron Fox, UFA
  2. Andre Frazier, UFA
  3. Arnold Harrison, RFA
  1. Fernando Bryant, UFA
  2. Anthony Madison, RFA
  3. Bryant McFadden, UFA
  1. Anthony Smith, RFA
  1. Paul Ernster

The move earlier this year by the owners to terminate the collective bargaining agreement with the players may be something of a complication for these, and all, free agents insomuch as 2009 may be the final season with a salary cap in place.
