We could have keep the young money crew together for 2013.
If the Steelers had only followed the rest of the NFL with signing Draft picks to 4year deals this did not have to happen.

Wallace would be restricted free agent. Place 1st round tender $2.879.
Though he might have still left. we would get a first round.

Sanders would be in the last year of contract and be a restricted free agent next year.

Brown Same as Sanders plus we would not have give him a long term contract unetil
this year or next.

Hopefully the Steelers will learn a lesson from the rest of the league!

C'mon, man.

Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining.

Wallace had a 4-year contract. He played for the Steelers in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Last year Wallace was tendered for a 1st-round pick. Nobody would bite.

No way we were paying Wallace $60M.

we will survive



even the idiots agree

NFL Network analyst Jamie Dukes pointed to the six critical fumbles by Steelers receivers during the 8-8 season in 2012 — two by Sanders — and wondered if they might not be better rebuilding their group.

“Those were the guys putting the ball on the carpet,” Dukes said Wednesday. “They missed the playoffs because of dropped balls, fumbled balls. Period, end of story.”

The new CBA will not allow us to sign draft picks to a 3 year deal anymore, so either way, this won't happen again.

We'll be better off without the "young money" crew, that shit was ridiculous, a bunch of over inflated egos dropping passes and fumbling when running with the ball, no thanks. I'm done hearing about "talent" at WR, we don't need any more of this "talent" that we have been acquiring, we need football players.

I agree.
It was outrageous - these guys were buying into their own hype, heads were in the clouds, egos were running wild...
No thanks. We don't need a "crew". We need individual players and performers (and i'm not referring to 'individual' in a bad way such as a C.O., Moss, Owens type....).
I've been looking at the downsides and upsides of the Sanders deal and i'm leaning to letting him sign with the Pats.

Sanders spices up Patriots and Steelers situation through social media

By SteelCityRoller on Apr 11 2013

In the individual era of a team sport, money talks and free-agents walk. Wanting to better one's self is understandable in any industry, but sometimes business has nothing to do with business.

Is there more to the Emmanuel Sanders saga than has been considered since he officially signed an offer sheet with the New England Patriots, leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers only five days to match or settle for the 91st pick overall as compensation?

Emmanuel Sanders ✔ @E_Sanders88

Survival is a game of chance! Revenge is a calculated plan of action.
1:54 AM - 03 Apr 13

In this modern, social media driven world we live in today, NFL players are constantly finding new ways to get into trouble on Twitter. While some take it to extremes - Rashard Mendenhall, Victor Cruz - usually Twitter exposes the lack of wisdom and discernment of players like Alameda Ta'amu.

Many feel reading too far between the lines is an unfair way to make an assessment, considering these players are human beings using their American right to free-speech in a public digital place. However, sometimes timings and subject material are far too close to reality to be disregarded as innocent thumb banter.

Based on the timeliness of the tweet, Sanders shared this little tidbit of wisdom just as the NFL world was coming to terms with the news of his accepting of the Patriots offer.

Hopefully, he was simply sharing the new chapter from his most recent Chicken Soup for the Soul purchase, but he is most likely referring to reality - or at least, his reality. To be safe, we will assume he is not. If he is, he may have lost his mind.

The latest collective bargaining agreement has only further enabled the idea NFL players have become a disposable commodity, making it understandable why any player would entertain the idea of a pay-raise considering the short shelf-life associated with the average career. The head-scratcher in this story lies in the fact his pay-raise was barely over a million dollars more, and no extra seasons. As has been theorized already, the Patriots could be planning to offer him something more, but those are not the details of the offer sheet he signed.

This is where the ambiguous Tweet leaves too much room for curiosity. Did Sanders sincerely view the offer sheet as part of the NFL player's survival? Or, did he simply jump ship out of revenge? If so, exactly who is he revenging against?

Did he take exception with the departures of Mike Wallace or Mendenhall? Perhaps it was the handling of the James Harrison and Wille Colon situations which set him off?

Sanders has not been shy in the past about his desire to receive a long-term offer this off-season. While he was not as outspoken as Wallace was last year, he definitely had no intention of signing his RFA tender until he had to. Perhaps Sanders chose to accept the Patriots offer because the Steelers did not make the type of effort he had hoped to see from them, although New England wasn't exactly expeditious in their pursuit of Sanders, either.

Hopefully, his Tweet was completely irrelevant to the topic at hand. Perhaps it was an attempt at profundity, which has become the ultimate trend on Twitter. If it really was an admittance of an attempt to manipulate or spite the Steelers organization, the team will find the third-round compensatory draft pick even more attractive than Sanders' experience.

Most who know Sanders, speak of him as a high character guy, which sprinkles some doubt on the relevance of his tweet. However, the fact the young money crew dissipated at the same time the organization was attempting to repair reported fractures in the locker room, may be more than just coincidental.

IMO, We kept the best receiver out of that crew. The rest are gone and I'm glad. Well move on from here and get just as productive receivers without breaking the bank in the next two seasons.

If you were a hot babe wearing black and gold, I'd say OK kinky can work for me. But from you, that's just sick.

Now what were we talking about. Oh yeah, young money. Unfortunately young money bleeds green and not black and gold.

Sanders most memorable play wearing black and gold was this season in the second game against the Ravens. He caught the ball while wide open and it sure looked like he was headed for pay dirt when he dropped it without even being hit.

Let him walk . . . and talk.

After last years debacle at the WR position, you would think anyone with the slightest bit of sense would just be quiet and look to prove themselves next year....but apparently playing like shit means you've earned the right to feel betrayed and talk shit.

Don't let the door hit you in the ass Sanders....:moon:

Good riddance. We already signed the only good receiver to come out of that assinine "young money" crap.

Wow. Sounds like there was a lot of bitterness between the front office staff and some of the receivers. That Antonio Brown contract really must have put some sand in Wallass' and Sanders' vajays. Hope Wallass enjoys being the #1 receiver on a loser team. If Sanders is lucky, maybe Timmons will accidentally make him drop the ball again, but now I would rather see Clark scrape his skull off with that big azz helmet of his.

The only thing that upsets me is two years ago we all thought we were set at receiver for the next decade. It was almost too good to be true the way we picked these guys up in the later rounds of the draft. Fast forward two years later and now we are about to be seriously lacking depth and talent at WR. A position of strength has turned into a position of weakness.. And now we have to address this need instead of spending the time and money on addressing other team needs.

yup, I remember thinking those 3 receivers were going to get the offense over the hump - boy was I wrong - AB still has a lot to prove this coming season too - I couldn't agree more about the WR corp - you can keep all the flash and talk you want - I want some effing gamers at WR, not little hot-shit smurfs. Catch the freaking ball and WANT to be the best.
