I'm not against signing either of these guys to come in and compete for the starting spot. I've always thought Bodden was a pretty good player

i'd take either one of them with a rotation of burnett or lewis. it would give our secondary some hope. any news about potential FS's since clark is gone?? or are we gonna throw up a hail mary on a safety in the draft lol

There both horrible in coverage imo... Jackson gets burned and Bodden no thanks he got his his stats padded against Sanchez.

He played for the Lions and the Browns he sucks.

Please stop with the insanity. Bodden has 12 INT's in the past 3 seasons and anybody that remembers him with the Browns knows that he has solid cover skills........much better than William Gay.

Both are better than Gay, but Jackson is a RFA, so I dont see that the steelers will ever give up a pick for him when they could just sign an UFA like Bodden instead. This rumor is just smoke.

Would you think that if we do sign Bidden, along with our young CBs, that it would take the CB position off the Steelers draft board.

Yea five of them came from this season when sanchez gift wrapped them for christmas.... 3 interceptions to him and that was when sanchez hit the rookie wall... He got burned in Detroit in 2008. He will get burned here lol Look back over his gamelogs his interceptions came against poor teams like Cincinnati Kitna, St Louis, the browns. After those he's never been impressive.

Actually the Colts didnt tender M Jackson so he is a UFA

Detroit had no pass rush and with no pass rush any CB will get burned.

NFL GM's have a choice. Sign William Gay for $1.5million a year and give up a 5th round pick..........or pay 3x as much to sign Leigh Bodden as a UFA. You will probably see Bodden taken over Gay, because he is much better than Gay.

The only reason that you dont see Leigh Bodden as an upgrade to the Steelers secondary over Gay, is because you have been pimping Gay for the past year.

Thanks. Then there may be some legit smoke there....although I think somebody will outbid us for Jackson. I think either of those guys helps our secondary out and makes it better.

i was wondering if fred smoot would be an upgrade over townsend. probably come for the same price and he couldnt have lost more of a step than him.

Steelers have shown interest in Chestor Taylor which i saw HERE (http://www.examiner.com/x-2703-Pittsburgh-Sports-Examiner~y2010m3d5-Pittsburgh-Steelers-freeagency-digest-Chester-Taylor-being-eyed-Clark-not-resigned)

Probably just a rumor but hey its something to discuss :chuckle:

Well i can't talk on that but i just want a ballhawker to compliment Troy. We can't keep having these 10 interceptions a year with the most by Troy. We could seal games with interceptions which we arn't doing.

Leigh Bodden was always one of the best players the Browns had when he was there. He had a solid season with the Patsies last year I would really like to see him in Da Burgh.

But he's not a ball hawker like William Gay. :rofl: Check the gamelogs.

I wouldn't mind taking a chance on Bodden he would have to be an upgrade compared to what we have. I am so tired of seeing our corners get burnt.
