OWUeagleMD Posted March 12, 2006 Share Posted March 12, 2006 http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06071/669034.stm Steelers management treated the first day of free agency with one big yawn and, so far, that's about how other teams welcomed Steelers free agents. Wide receiver Antwaan Randle El was busy talking to his second team in two days but, other than that, there was little activity with the Steelers or their dozen unrestricted free agents. Omar Khan, the club's chief negotiator, spent Friday night meeting with agent Eric Metz discussing a deal to keep defensive end Brett Keisel. The Steelers did not sign any of their other 11 unrestricted free agents, or their two restricted free agents. Randle El, considered the most valuable of their players given freedom at 12:01 a.m. yesterday, rejected an offer by his hometown Chicago Bears and was whisked on a private jet to Washington to discuss a deal with the Redskins and to attend a Wizards NBA game last night as their guest. His agent and the Bears continue to keep talks open. Starting defensive end Kimo von Oelhoffen reportedly was in New York to visit with the Jets, but there was little news about any of the other Steelers. Safety Chris Hope, as of yesterday, had lined up no visits to other NFL teams. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
