surprise surprise.. the cinderella story every year in camp is not if cushing will be cut, but when, and when he'll be back.

He's versatility lets him keep on hanging around. Im not sure a Steeler team would be complete w/out him on the roster :D

"I thought we were talking under dogs? I'll take the field in Kriewaldt, Cushing, and Schneck"

Hey Vegas here I come! Called it! Better double down on Stuvaints as well.

Still we need a bigtime TE,especially if we don`t have a deep threat WR to go along with Ward

I am sure we will draft a TE......How can a team that doesn't use thier Tight-Ends need so many? Weird, we got 2 Quarterbacks and 9 Tight-Ends????

they're looking for spare bodies for training camp if nothing else..and hoping maybe marco or kranchick will step up to be the #2 guy behind tuman for now.

To me this just shows that this will be one more year where the tight end position will be under used.

As long as BC is the head coach, the TE will always be under used.. unless the sky starts falling or something.. :D

the last time we used a tight end w/ any kind of regularity in the passing game was eric greene.

I thought when we picked up Jay Reimsma we where changing, but that didn`t workout

Now we are getting down to the root of the problem.

Fast yes, but small and definitley doesn`t have the greatest hands in the world. not bad hands. You almost need size or there going to jam you off the line, and he can`t be down field and take it away from a defender

Word out of Steelerslive, is the Steelers actually may be seriously considering Heath w/ the first pick. Its a great pic, no doubt, but I still wont believe it till I see it that we spend #1 pick again on a TE.. it just doesnt happen much... but hey, maybe its time.. and Heap worked out well for the ratbirds so who knows.
