NFL Free Agency: Willie Colon, Jonathan Scott Among Steelers' Targets

The Steelers have reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year contract with cornerback Ike Taylor, but he isn't the only player the front office is looking to hold onto as NFL Free Agency silly season continues. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette and Ray Fittipaldo report the team has a number of other internal targets.

Team officials have determined that among their other top targets to resign are offensive tackles Willie Colon and Jonathan Scott and kicker Scott Suisham. They also are expected to approach veteran offensive tackle Flozell Adams about taking less than the $5 million salary his contract stipulates. Adams, 36, has expressed a desire to return, but wants to do so as the starting right tackle again.

Obviously, there's a lot of focus on the offensive line here, and for good reason. The team heads to camp in a few days, and there's still an overwhelming amount of uncertainty there. Needless to say, that's not good, and making anything but the line the top priority right now would probably be a bad idea.
