With Indianapolis' victory over the New York Jets, there were a lot of happy people in the Steelers' locker room.
They weren't happy because they favored the Colts over the Jets. They were happy because Indianapolis heading to the Super Bowl means that tight end Dallas Clark can't play in the Pro Bowl, thus opening a spot for Heath Miller to go.
Miller's a pretty popular guy in the locker room and many of the players have long lobbied for him to get a trip to the Pro Bowl. But it's been difficult because he's never had the gaudy catch numbers that usually get players selected to the NFL's all-star game - until this season.

In the series, I'll look at the Steelers' impending free agents and possible replacements/upgrades available on the market.
