Good tackles arent easy to find so assuming he continues to do well we wont want to let him go.
"Huge upside" -a pun if there ever were one. Our right side could be a BIG issue. I agree with BnG 32. I think he still struggles to get his massive frame leveraged against the best opposition. But can Grimm move his technique and footwork to the next level???

We're watching this closely. If he can play like he's in the bottom of the top tier then I think they'll extend him. Here's to praying for a healthy Duce. That would help.

Starks is not there just yet. I think he needs to show a few years of consistency before he can talk serious pay raise.

I remember seeing him get laid out flat on his back by defenders that were a lot smaller than him. A guy that big shouldn't be getting bullied around by any body.

Max contract is over after this year but he will be a restricted free agent like Ike Taylor was. They will most likely give him a qualifying offer next February like Ike requiring a first round compensation and then try to negotiate a contract next summer.

If Ike gets his money this year and Starks has another good year - I suspect the Steelers will play it the same way with Max. Max should stick close to Simmons for a few more years and then go for the gold since he will mostly likely have a 12-14 year career he will get the best money after 6 or 7 years and a few rings.
I still like Nate
Can't wait to play the Ben-Jailed!
