I think they'll make every effort to make Keenan Lewis a big deal. No possible way we can afford to lose anything in this porous secondary - and he's proved to be a big playmaker. That would be a huge hit to the team if he wasn't signed.
I agree Wallace will be gone. Mendenhall should be kept if possible. Mendenhall is coming off a knee surgery and the rest of the league will be wary of his status. He didn't show much this season. Mendenhall still has something left in the tank but who knows how much.
The fact is he is a rd 1 pick and the Steelers should not get into the habit of burning a high draft pick every 4 years on a running back. High picks should be used on positions of longevity.
Mendenhall will be cheap to rehire (he has been the best value on the team imo).
