Why would he go to Carolina with what they have in the backfield already? I dont see that happening.

Now I like Tolbert coming to us. I think that could be a great little signing. Still need to teach our Oline how to block though. Steelers will gethim for a larger cash payout upfront, speard over 3 years. 3-4 for 7-8mill will get it done plus some bonuses.

We can afford him because its a pass first league now. RB's are bought with coupons now, plus the list of RB's is huge that are available. I actually like Smith from the Lions, although he had the injury big last year. Not sure how many times its going to have to be said but the league has evolved. Steelers FO will try to push back, they can try all they want but we are a pass ahppy team now.

tolbert is not an insurance policy for Mendy. He will probably be cut soon as the injury evolves out. As just like Hampton couldn't be cut, nor can Mendy, but the writing is on the wall for him.

Addai needs an oline, we cant pass protect let alone block for Addai, he is a candy ass and was spoiled int he hay days of the colts and manning. That dog cant hunt no more.

The only way that I think this is a good idea is if it doesn't prevent us from retaining Wallace, Cotchery, Gay, and either Leftwich or Batch. The Steelers have more than enough bodies in the backfield with Redman, Dwyer, Clay, Batch, and Spann.

With the addition of Redman and Drwyer, noone on our current roster runs more vicious or downhill as Mike Tolbert. This dude would be a wrecking ball for us and would bolster a struggling offensive line in the trench's. Redman is a little lighter but with Tolbert, this could be our very own 1/2 punch of Williams & Stewart.

I like the thought of Tolbert as Steeler but it seems unrealistic. I'm thinking we don't even know what kind of offensive philosophy they will have going into next year, plus he won't come cheap and we still have to think about signing A. Brown next year and other cap issues.

Not mention we have some backs that could be worked in the rotation. I would like to see what Baron Batch brings to the table as well as Clay and Dwyer.

First off, I don't know what more Redman has to do to show he is a quality starter. Aside from that we have Mendy, Redman, Dwyer, Clay (i think he has big potential), Baron Batch, and MM. Even if we let MM go that still leaves us with 5 RB's on a team that doesn't run that much. Im confident Redman and Clay can get it in the endzone. It's not that I am against Tolbert, and I know Mendy will miss quite a bit of the season, but if we let MM go and signed Tolbert that's 6 RB's on the roster. Can we afford that? If we can, is it worth it? IMO, if the stars align, we will get a starting quality guard in the draft, get rid of David "cant block can't catch" Johnson, train Clay to play FB, and get Tolbert, but much of that is far fetched. You can dream right lol? But in reality 6 RB's seems a bit much to me.

Gerry Dulac: No visit. Not happening.

What a surprise. The Steelers have more items to accomplish before they have the luxury to worry about a position in which they already have 5 or 6 warm bodies. Like wide receiver, where they currently have two.
