Bradshaw, Cardinals' backup safety visit Steelers
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.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
