Keep Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller, Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley, and complement them with young, cheap talent.
You make some great points but your last one about the cheap talent is interesting because, cheap talent normally yields cheap results. You get what you pay for in this league nowadays.
But we are a fairly young team though. Spot on with that.
