The Steelers brought Palmer to Pittsburgh during 2013 training camp with Heath Miller still recovering from his ACL injury, and after Matt Spaeth injured his Lisfranc.
- Michael Palmer is listed as having appeared in all 16 games last season for the Steelers, but he only made 1 catch.
Owens, Blount Visit South Side
The Steelers also entertained two more visitors on the South Side last week. Veteran defensive back Chris Owens was in for a work out. Ownens entered the league as a third round draft pick by Atlanta, being taken in the same draft as Keenan Lewis, and has also played with the Dolphins and Browns.
- The Steelers would appear to be looking at Owens to man the 4th CB slot, behind Ike Taylor, Cortez Allen, and William Gay.
Still, Pittsburgh didn’t get a shot at James Starks, Maurice Jones-Drew’s asking price is too high, and the Steelers need a depth in the backfield.
