BUT, can either of them catch and/or get open???

More importantly, on a fade route, with they get BOTH feet down (because our current #1 WR can not do that).

On the video, they do bring up a good point. He had a nice season, all things considered last year, with the Jets. They need WR help. Why on earth is he still out there? I mean, money could be one but we certainly aren't going to pay him very much. Maybe he didn't want to go back there but I would think he would have gone anywhere rather than sitting on his couch. Just seems weird. Either way, glad to have a proven guy back. Him and Heath make our redzone offense pretty damn good. When Ben gets back...although Charlie isn't bad.

overreact much? it will be weird to have him around again, see him in a Steelers uniform

not everyone needs to blindly follow every move the Steelers make - that is your perrogative

Even though that wasn't the case.

Sheesh.

plax had 8 TD's last year on a sanchez offense. I'd say he's got something left in the tank
