Default RBs

I know it's a little early to talk about off season moves but I'm looking for insight on what the running back market will look like. I think mendy and probably Redman need to go. Hurts to say that because I've liked both of them very much at times during their Steeler careers. I would keep Dwyer and Rainey but don't think either one is fulltime worthy.

I say we sign Mendy to a one year deal, draft Lattimore in a mid round. Let Lattimore rehab next year and turn him loose in 2014....Class guy all the way and a great runner

Let Mendy walk, let Dwyer be #2 RB with Redman as the 3rd down and 1 yard to go back. Sign Ben Tate as the number 1.

Knile Davis could be a steal in the draft.

I don't want anything to do with mendy. I do like you're idea on lattimore. I like Bernard from nc but he 'll probably go in the first. another guy I wouldn't mind is the back from Stanford.

Id love to make a free agency move like that but you know we won't.

love that idea...

however, Ben Tate will command big bucks once he hits free agency, the Steelers are way over next year's salary cap and unfortunately there's no way they will be able to afford him.

What's your take on picking up Steven Jackson for a one year contract.

Keep Redman on as the starter. Get rid of Mendy. Success.
