After Run To Super Bowl XLV, Steelers Face Tough Decisions With Key Free Agents

As I wrote about on SB Nation Pittsburgh, today is the first day that NFL teams can designate the Franchise Tag on their free agents. The common consensus seems to be that Pittsburgh will use the tag on outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley. Even though there's so much uncertainty surrounding a new Collective Bargaining Agreement and what it will mean for the free agency in the NFL, we can still have a discussion and make some educated guesses as to which current free agents the Steelers might re-sign. So let's do just that. However, when sharing your opinions, provide your best guess as to the type of deal each might get -- years, money, guarantees, etc. That's a bit tougher than just saying 'gone', 'stay'. I'll be working on my own version to share in the near future, but let's get an initial conversation started.
