Not really. First off there is no way I want another top pick used on our line. Next, if everyone does pan out we will lose them anyway. Pouncey is going to want a new contract after next season. Everyone here says he is the best center so he is going to want to be paid as the best center in the game
If DeCastro and Adams do as well as I expect them to then there goingtto have to fork out big money on them in 3 years
Gilbert will be ready for a new contract in two years and if he is our starting left tackle like he is expected to be for the next two years then he's going to want Left Tackle money
What I'm getting at is we will be lucky if we can keep who we have. We can't afford to spend another top pick on a lineman

Here is my issue with the contracts I don't necessarily feel the Steelers have been as smart with their spending as other teams have. There are other teams that have success without running out of money and the Steelers are always in cap trouble. They gotta be smarter about contract negotiating. They have to fimd a way to keep our core players in the future.

I wouldn't be shocked to see Gilbert let go eventually, regardless if he produces upon return - I don't see things adding up to keep him on top of Pouncey, DeCastro - that's unless you pull a NE for a few seasons and are able to get huge production out of low-paid players - don't see how we can afford to pay every position on offense and keep the O-line.

Steelers have a big problem on their hands IMO - no true #1 who is physical and sure hands in traffic. On top of that, no franchise running back who takes the pressure off of Ben. On top of that, going to come into linemen wanting paid over the next few seasons. Big, big dilemma. Then - you have young, developing talent on defense that could have a breakout performance and contribute in a huge way that will want paid - then there is the secondary - just not even close to enough to spread the $$ around.

Phew - plenty of juggling.

Other teams have the same problem(s)... we just don't hear about it.

The Ravens' method is to purge every few years. Then, they have a 5-11 season. And then, they try again. Next year will be an easy purge, since Lewis, Reed, & Birk are all retiring.

The Chargers simply allow all if their best player to walk; they don't pay anyone (except LT).

The Taperiots also do not sign anyone, except Brady & Welker... & Wilfork. That's why their defense is a rotation of young players... who never seem to be "great" (but, are good & cheap).

Et cetera.

I think that a perfect running back for our offense to pair with one of our bigger backs (who ever we keep) would be Joe Randel out of Oklahoma State. He is great in space, runs hard, has incredible hands out of the back field and is very durable. He is projected some where around the 3-4 round and he would flourish in our offense.

Whole lot of options now with thw hiring of the new oline coach and him running a zone blocking scheme supposedly. It will be interesting to see what happens in free agency and the draft for rbs. Im leaning towars gillisie
