Re: D. Lebeau told J. Laurinitus...
At 32, he certainly wouldn't be the best player available. But I really like Laurinaitis. It would be a cool pick; there are just a few problems.
1. If there is any position the Steelers don't need help at it's probably linebacker.
2. Laurinaitis' stock has been rising again. Even with what is widely considered to be second round talent he'll most likely be gone by pick 32 due to the stupidity of the draft process.
3. The last I knew Dick LeBeau wasn't the sole voice in the Steelers war room.
Just seems like more of a smokescreen than any legitimate sentiment. I mean come on, how many pro bowl caliber linebackers named James do we need?
