Re: Which player would you most have liked back or signed that we lost ???
Chad Brown - that one hurt because he was entering his prime, was perfect for the 3-4, and I believe might have had a HOF career if he had stayed in Pittsburgh. Steelers had to choose between Brown and Greg Lloyd before the 1996 season and took a legitimate chance by signing Lloyd. They then saw Lloyd blow out his knee against Jax in the first game of the 1996 season, after which he was effectively done as a player.
I always thought the Steelers were too cheap to sign Woodson until I read Woodson went to the 49ers for less money because Cowher wanted to move Woodson to safety for 1997 and Woodson thought he still should play CB. Cowher had that one right.
