The Pittsburgh Steelers have a number of defenders headed into free agency, especially cornerbacks, safeties, and defensive linemen that the Jacksonville Jaguars could take a look at.

Here are all the impending Pittsburgh Steelers free agents, according to OverTheCap.com.

There's not a ton here on the defensive side of the ball. The most likely target would be Brandon Boykin (which we profiled here) but I don't think it happens. On offense, Ramon Foster played every down at left guard and didn't do too poorly. According to Pro Football Focus, he allowed just seven sacks. The 29-year-old is a balanced player who is equally as strong at pass blocking as he is at run blocking.
