James Sanders, a backup safety with the Cardinals, visited the Steelers on Thursday, as did two-time 1,000-yard rusher Ahmad Bradshaw of the Giants.

The Steelers need safety help after losing free agents Ryan Mundy (Giants) and Will Allen (Cowboys).

Sanders played six seasons with the Patriots and was mostly a special teams player with Arizona last season, getting on the field fewer than 10 snaps per game.

Bradshaw, who ran for 1,015 yards last season, is coming off a right foot operation two months ago, and the Steelers wanted to check him out medically.

The Steelers are about $2.5 million below the salary cap and probably have room to sign Bradshaw if they want to do so.
