The free agency period began at midnight and unlike previous years, there were no big opening salvos.
Teams are playing things pretty close to the vest at this point as they feel things out in the uncapped year.
The Steelers are, of course, one of the teams who have been silent. But that's par for the course for them as they usually sit out the opening week or so before scouring the remains to pick up a bargain or two.
They have reportedly contacted the agent for free agent Arnaz Battle and have set up a visit with the former Notre Dame and San Francisco 49ers receiver.
Battle is a mutli-purpose threat - ala. Hines Ward and Atwaan Randle El - and could fit as a slot receiver, something the team could be in the market for given that Mike Wallace, Santonio Holmes and Limas Sweed are outside guys.
Battle could also be insurance for Sweed, who was placed on IR at the end of the season with a yet-undisclosed non-medical problem.
As of this writing there have no reports of any of the Steelers' free agents making or setting up visits anywhere.
