Exactly. Why would a team deep at the position even attempt to match offers he'll be getting elsewhere? I suppose they could tender him high, but even then I can think of more than a few teams that would consider him a bargain for a 1st-round draft pick. It could also backfire, since he knows he'll be getting the short end of it from the Steelers.
