Steelers Get Value In Free Agency
He broke down the 82-yard run for reporters, one that resulted in his first touchdown since high school. He accepted a congratulatory handshake from Steelers' president Art Rooney II.
Linebacker Keyaron Fox, the man of the moment last Sunday afternoon, showed why he is such a valuable Steelers reserve in their 27-17 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
In a larger sense, Fox serves as an affirmation of the Steelers' team-building philosophy.
In the spring of 2008, the Steelers stayed out of the annual shopping spree that commences at the start of the free-agent signing period. Instead of targeting big-ticket free agents, they quietly signed Fox, center Justin Hartwig and running back Mewelde Moore.
To say the Steelers have gotten their money's worth - they spent less than $10 million total on the three players - would be an understatement.
