Off Season Moves
 
Well, its ok now to look at what moves we can make to improve. Here is what I see happening:

GONE:
Batch
Redman
Mendenhall
Wallace
Starks
Foster
Hampton
Sylvestor
Foote
Mundy

Resign:
Leftwich
Dwyer
Burress
Sanders
McClendon
Lewis
W Allen

The Steelers are never active and I have no idea their cap situation but there are two running backs I like a lot that can come cheap and are extremely versitle:

Jackie Battle
Joquie Bell

Having a first round pick in the mid/late teens I can see the Steelers going in this direction:

rd 1. Run Stuffing DT to replace Hampton
rs. 2 Quick, Inside LB to replace Foote
rd 3. Running back if we don't re-sign or sign any
rd 4. wide receiver
rd.5 - rd7. OL, DL, DB help

Nice post. But, Max Starks gone? I'll believe it a few years after I see it.

Leftwich? Seriously?

And as unpopular as this sounds, they need to resign Wallace or else their WR core will stink. Allowing defenders to stack the box will make this offense worse, not better. Unless you're delusional, there's no way you can expect this offense to play that style of football.

I love when people have no clue what they're talking about when it comes to draft needs and/or possible draft prospects.

We're not drafting a NT in the first round. If we thought we could replace Ta'amu in another draft, we wouldn't have put him on the practice squad after the legal issues. Second, this class is too heavily defensive favored to draft an offensive player before the fifth round. Third, we're not resigning Dwyer. Overweight and out-of-shape running backs aren't my style and they shouldn't be the Steelers' style, either. It's time to move on from Captain 3 yards per carry.

Regarding free agency, they're going to resign Wallace. I'd like for you to name a team that will give Wallace more than 10 million a year in terms of a 5 year / 50 million dollar deal. The Steelers will match it, and if any team wants to give him more than that, be my guest.

not sure why you think we wont draft a NT in round one? we will have a HUGE hole their and our 3-4 cant work against the run without our NT demaning double teams. get a clue.

as for wallace, any team with a young QB with cap room will make an offer. Think dolphins, think rams, think cleveland, think jacksonville, think jets. lots of teams.

he was no existant this year and rarely took the top off the coverage. a full off season with Burress and our WRs dont miss a step.

Wallace will be gone. Leftwich will be gone too.

Starks will stay.

Even though Burress is popular amongst the "boards", unfortunately thats where it ends. I like him - but he'll be gone too.
Also, look for at least one HUGE shake-up that no one expects.

not much mileage on burress and he will come cheap and can make up for wallace's production somewhat

the shake up will be either Harrison, Ike or Woodley being cut. we proven we can play without them on defense and still play at a high level

id try to keep mendenhall, but our first priority should be to re-sign keenan lewis to a deal.

if wallace wants to play for us for a much lower price than franchise tag money, then awesome, if not hasta la vista

starks gone? he's one of our best linemen. I would try to sign him maybe to a 2 year deal, he's durable and probably has a couple years left in him.

batch/left gone... if hoyer can win the spot from them. this won't be decided until training camp. batch might be gone though because of age
