Historically not a team to go out and grab the big free agent, the Pittsburgh Steelers made several un-Steeler like acquisitions this offseason—bringing in veterans like wide receiver Lance Moore, running back LeGarrette Blount and safety Mike Mitchell.
Hopefully one, or some, of those players will someday make this list, but as of now, who are the five greatest free-agent signings by the Steelers?
5 – Kevin Greene
Greene was the first big-time free agent signing by the Pittsburgh Steelers and he certainly didn’t disappoint.
The linebacker came over to the black and gold in 1993 and was a mainstay of the defense until his departure after the 1995 season.
Greene led the league in sacks in 1994 giving him the honor of playing in the Pro Bowl—a distinction he earned twice (1995) wearing a Steelers uniform.
Compiling 35.5 sacks during his three seasons earns him eighth place honors on the team’s all-time sacks list.
