Free Agents

Jeff Saturday Interested In Playing Guard For The Steelers

Three-time Pro Bowl Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday will likely becomes an unrestricted free agent at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, and apparently wants to play for the Steelers. “I talked to Jeff after the Super Bowl, and he said if you can get me there, that would be beautiful,” said Pittsburgh-based agent Ralph Cindrich. “This is a Rooney-type of guy if ever there was one.” Saturday will be willing to switch from center to guard to do so. “He\’s happy to play guard. He started in the league at guard. He told me, \’I\’ll play anywhere,\’ ” Cindrich said Tuesday. Cindrich said Saturday compares favorably with another one of his other clients, Steelers linebacker James Farrior, who led the team in tackles and was named to his second Pro Bowl in his 12th season. Farrior is 34. “I believe that James Farrior is one of the best leaders in the NFL. Jeff Saturday is equal to Farrior. He really controls the whole offensive line, makes every call,” Cindrich said. “It\’s a Farrior-type situation, where age scares teams. Farrior\’s first four to five years, he didn\’t get beat up. Jeff is the same way.” Regarded as one of the NFL\’s top centers, Saturday appeared in the Pro Bowl from 2005 through 2007 and is a two-time Pro Bowl alternate (2004, 2008). He was also named to the Associated Press All-NFL team twice in 2005 and 2007. Saturday has started all 16 games in seven of nine seasons with the Colts since becoming a starter. He started 12 games last season, missing the first two weeks with a knee injury and weeks 13 and 14 with a calf injury.
