First off, great post and I agree with the majority of what you stated. My question though, how do you figure that the Steelers "did not pursue Chris Hope more aggressively"? It was reported he was asking for 4 million a year. Do you feel he's worth 4 million a year?
In my opinion, the Steelers did pursue Hope, but once they found out he wanted top five money or four million a year, they said no way. While Clark's play remains to be seen in a Steeler uniform, I think he's worth the gamble compared to paying Hope money that he cleary is not worth in my book. Personally, I like the Clark signing and I think he will fill in very nicely for Hope.
