Now that Joey Porter is gone and the Steelers have been rebuffed in their efforts to acquire a veteran outside linebacker in free agency - not that the crop was that good to begin with - many are asking what they will do now?
One possibility is to move defensive end Brett Keisel to outside linebacker and select a young defensive end in the draft to take his place. Nebraska's Adam Carricker certainly would fit and could be available when the Steelers make their first-round pick, the 15th overall.
The Steelers have been smart not to dive into this free agent pool. Some of the contracts being given out are way over the border for ridiculous.
The Steelers will restock through the draft this year. And it's a deep draft, much deeper than the free agent pool.
