Receiver Joey Galloway visiting Steelers
Share with others:
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Joey Galloway is visiting with the Steelers today as the team begins its search for replacements for departed free agents.
Galloway, 37, who appeared in only nine games last season because of injuries, was brought in as a possible replacement for No. 3 receiver Nate Washington, who signed last week with the Tennessee Titans.
A No. 1 draft choice of the Seattle Seahawks in 1995, Galloway played five seasons in Tampa Bay, two while Mike Tomlin was the Buccaneers' secondary coach. Galloway has had six 1,000-yard receiving seasons during his 14-year NFL career, including three in a row from 2005 to 2007 with the Buccaneers.
However, he was limited to 13 catches, 138 yards and no touchdowns in nine games last season because of injuries. Galloway was released as part of a salary-cap purge several weeks ago and has also visited with the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots.
