Default Re: Steelers Tender Offers to Six Restricted Free Agents

johnson was undrafted so there would be no compensation with the low tender.
johnson is all but worthless as either a receiver or a blocker. if the steelers cut him, he'll be out of the NFL. just like carey davis , justin hartwig , sean mchugh, and all the other turds that they kept around.
Actually, we did in fact draft David Johnson. He was a 7th round pick in the 2009 draft out of Arkansas St. From what I always read about him, the reason we have kept him around is because of his blocking ability.
The Steelers were named after the American Steel workers - the men who helped build America. The Browns were named after Paul Brown - the man who helped to build....the Bengals.
