But Rainey can be used on both kick/punt returns and will have a place in Haley's offense.

Remember Stefan Logan? Dangerous on special teams, but worthless on offense. If Maze can't show anything on the offense then he's going to get cut.

I made my feelings on Heath very clear...but Plaxico's abilities in the red zone can not be denied.
Let me explain something about the Dude... i am also a "No to Plaxico", as long as 17 is dressed and ready to go week 1.

No Wally week 1....I'd bite on the the black Barney Fife
Heath has not had the red zone TD catches because they keep him in blocking. My point is they may not have to do that this year and Haley is not Airhead. Sorry, but there is no way I think Plaxico (who apparently wants too much money any way) is a good fit with this team. He is poison and could not even survive on that cancer of a team the New York Jets. We don't need him. Maybe he can join TO in Seattle. Some loser team may pay him way too much and bring him in to help them remain a loser team. The Steelers have great chemistry in general. Plaxico will not fit in because he is all about himself. Of course that is my opinion and you have yours. We all know what opinions are like.

according to ESPN (laughable I know), Plaxico is willing to take vet minimum and the Steelers just aren't interested at this juncture.

Ed Bouchette also said that he is willing to take veteran minimum, although I think at least 2 of the 3 following have to happen before the Steelers consider bringing him in: 1) Wallace never shows up, 2) one of the top 3 in camp gets injured, and 3) the rest of the WR group never shows anything the team can be comfortable with.

I wouldn't mind Plax at vet minimum for one year so long as he can accept in all likelihood being the 5th receiver and a redzone specialist.

I really don't think we have the need enough to warrant taking such a bad team player.

Are we calling him a bad team player because of what happened after the 2004 season? I think it's really time to get past that. And you certainly can't put all the blame on him for how the Jets fell apart last year. I like to think the Steelers have a stronger locker room than the Jets.

But as I said, it would only be for vet minimum and assuming a reduced role in the offense.

I suppose you make a good point.

He was able to be productive and avoided being any sort of nuisance on one of the most over the top, ridiculous teams in the league last year.

Supposedly the Cowboys are ready to sign him if no one steps it up for #3 spot in their camp

... and there you go. He is Cryboys material. I actually think he will be perfect for them.
