connect cheap bandwidth to existing SSG520

connect cheap bandwidth to existing SSG520

Hi Everyone,
Appreciate if someone can advice how to develop connectivity of a new cheaper bandwidth to the firewall. Having Juniper SSG 520 connected to Untrusted (MetroE), DMZ1, DMZ2 and trusted. As the all the ports (4 ports) come together with the firewall has been used and not looking at adding port to the firewall.
The objective is to channel web traffic to the cheaper bandwidth. The cheaper bandwidth comes with static IP. Doing so will free up Metro E bandwidth to more important critical business traffic. Is it workable to connect the cheaper bandwidth to one of the DMZ zone and create a route on the firewall of all web traffic to be channelled to the exits IP on the cheaper bandwidth equipment?
Questions are:
1.    If this is workable how SSG 520 can be configured?
2.    If this doesn't make sense, is there any economic solution?
