It sounds like the Pittsburgh Steelers are having a busy Monday when it comes to entertaining visitors.
According to Bob Labriola of steelers.com, the team is hosting two unrestricted free agents on Monday and they are linebacker Jayrone Elliott and wide receiver Justin Hunter.
Visiting the @Steelers today are UFAs LB Jay Elliott and WR Justin Hunter.

Elliot, who played his college football at Toledo, was signed originally by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2014. In three seasons with the Packers he played in 38 total regular season games and recorded 57 total tackles, four sacks and one interception as an outside linebacker.
As for Hunter, he was originally drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Tennessee. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin should know Hunter well being as he went to high school in Virginia Beach.
Last season with the Buffalo Bills, Hunter recorded 10 receptions for 189 yards and four touchdowns. He measures in at 6-4, 203-pounds and is still only 25 years of age.
According to Field Yates of ESPN Hunter had a recent visit with the New England Patriots.

Both Elliot and Hunter are very low-profile free agents this offseason and thus one would think they wouldn’t be offered very much to sign with the Steelers.
The Steelers are also expected to host two other free agents in the coming days in cornerback Davon House and linebacker Dont’a Hightower.
