Jones & Johnson stay; Tuitt talks; bid now

A look back at the week that saw the start of free agency.


NFL free agency is in full swing and you can get the latest right here.
A look at some of what happened around the NFL as free agency kicked off.

It was a rather typical start to free agency once again for the Steelers.
Free agency began officially at 4 p.m. yesterday, March 9 – even though the 48-hour legal tampering period preceding that had resulted in many deals getting done before any official papers could be signed – and while there was a predictable amount of insanity in several NFL cities, it was business as usual in Pittsburgh.

Landry Jones will continue to give the Steelers depth at quarterback.
About a month ago, Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert said he wanted to keep Landry Jones in the mix at quarterback. The team did just that when they signed him to a two-year contract.

David Johnson had hoped to return to the Steelers, and he is.
David Johnson left Pittsburgh once, and he didn't want to do it again. And the veteran tight end didn't have to, as the Steelers signed him on the first day of free agency to a two-year deal.

A look at key free agents the Steelers have signed through the years.
Free agency began in 1993, and while the Steelers have never been a team to rush to sign players right out of the gate, they definitely have found their share who have contributed to the success of the organization, including several who helped bring a few more Lombardi Trophies to Pittsburgh.

The Steelers secured some of their own before free agency even began.
NFL free agency is just hours away, and when the clock strikes 4 p.m. it kicks into high gear.
