Steelers Floated as Possible Suitor for Projected $45 Million CB

The Pittsburgh Steelers have several issues that they could address during NFL free agency. However, during his weekly fan discussion on March 6, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Gerry Dulac anticipated that the Steelers would focus on cornerbacks. When questioned about particular prospective free agent targets, Dulac brought up veteran cornerback Adoree’ Jackson.


“Free agency could produce a CB because three that the Steelers have — Wallace, Sullivan, Pierre — are all UFAs,” Dulac wrote in a blog post.


And I believe mid-range players like Adoree Jackson are the type of players who can come in and start while the Steelers determine whether Cory Trice can help them.”

Jackson started 14 games for the New York Giants last year. He recorded 63 total tackles, 8 pass defenses, and one interception. Jackson returned the pick for a 76-yard score.


This summer, Spotrac predicted Jackson’s deal value to be $45.4 million over four years.


In addition to Jackson, Dulac suggested Kendall Fuller as a possible mid-range free agent cornerback candidate for the Steelers.
