The question is whether they can afford him.
The Steelers had to shell out another $1.2 million to match New England's offer sheet signed by Emmanuel Sanders, and worked a few dollars off that new sum with an extension given to nose tackle Steve McLendon. Reports suggest the Steelers are approximately $1 million under the cap.
In other words, the only way they're going to be in the ballpark with Bradshaw, who can command at least around that $1 million range for the 2013 season, is if they make a cut and/or restructure a player.
Will they be willing to do that?
Depending on how the second and third rounds go today, they may be in a better position depth-wise in one area and can afford to make a cut that would result in a net savings against the cap. Or perhaps Bradshaw would merely be a contingency plan in case they can't get a running back they've had their eyes on this evaluation period.
Stay tuned, rounds 2 and 3 look to be very active.
