Notable names:
Champ Bailey
Ronde Barber
Antonio Cromartie
Lito Sheppard
Carlos Rogers

Most kind of old but I think all the top corners this draft will be gone by our pick...just saying we need help! Though i'm aware the #1 priority has to be re-signing Ike. Barber shouldnt be too expensive plus Tomlin coached him

Also need to figure out how to sign Woodley, Timmons & Colon. Not a lot of $$ laying around for a quality FA cornerback

Signing a 35 year old Barber does not make sense to me unless the Steelers long term goal is to have an entire starting defense > 30 years old

Champ, Ronde - too old, Cromarti - probably stay a Jet, Shepard - not bad, but not great, Rodgers - I'd sign him

old yes, but the fact is they can still play, i'm definetly not saying give them a long term deal. Just a quick fix until we can develop some young guys

This is being considered a deep, deep draft for corners. We're bound to get a good one if that's what we most need.

Thats good to hear if it is a deep CB draft class, just seems to me good CB's are so rare anymore because of the touchy rules and athletic ability of WR's these days

So Timmons is a free agent in 2011 also? That sucks, this team needs a real good O lineman and another good corner. But if we have that many free agents, we'll be lucky to keep the guys we have.

I struggle with the fact that BOTH a CB and an OL are huge needs. We got Pouncey who will be a great one imho..Id like to make him even better with a great OT as well.

Woodley is my guy and I hope we dont lose him eihter ..Timmons also appears to be a no brainer to have to re sign but he will cost some big bucks as well.


Tough off season in the GMs office .not that any offseason is in a walk in the park either.

No free agents will be signed this year

FA for next year will be and if they are to be resigned:

Dennis Dixon -Maybe seeing Batch and Leftwitch are pretty old
Willie Colon-Maybe seeing how we're short on O-Line
Trai Essex-Gone
Keyaron Fox-Sly will take his place
Tony Hills-Maybe seeing how the O-Line's current condition is
Chris Hoke-Maybe
Doug Legursky-Gone
Anthony Madison-Gone
Ryan Mundy-Gone
Ike Taylor-Stays
LaMarr Woodley-Stays
Greg Warren-Stays
Jonathan Scott-Stays
Nick Eason-Gone
William Gay-Gone

Of course Woodley and Timmons are the top priority. But it's obvious we need one good corner. I know we have Pouncey, I think he's going to be one of the greats, but he can't do it alone. This O line sucks.

i hope dixon and hills are gone.

i would keep fox over the human bowling pin slow-of-foote.

i would re-sign taylor. gay is good as a nickel back.

woodley can walk for all i care. he is too inconsistent to be given a big contract.

i want eason and hoke to be re-signed.

legursky should be re-signed to add depth at the C and G spots.

Dude, wake up! Everyone is saying sign Ike, BUT we have to have somebody on the other side!!! We get burnt way too much in the passing game! :thumbsup:
