Already reeling for the losses of Mike Wallace, Keenan Lewis, Rashard Mendenhall and perhaps worse yet Will Allen and Ryan Mundy, Steelers Nation woke up to another fine April 1st to the news that they have yet another hole to fill.
Behind the Steel Curtain is reporting that the AFL’s New Orleans Voodo has signed restricted free agent Isaac Redman to a two year tender worth an estimated 3 million dollars. The Steelers have 7 days to match the offer.
Given that this would mark the first interleague transaction since the days of the USFL, it is unknown what conversation the Steelers would get should they lose Redman. Baron Batch and Jonathan Dwyer are the only running backs the Steelers have under contract, although the Steelers recently worked out New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw.
- The Steelers are not standing by idly, however.
