It just seems strange to me..that IF they had confidence in Okobi...why pick up three rookie centers this year? Phillip from California..Love from Arizona State...and Newton from Hofstra. Three rookie centers behind two Vets tell me that they are looking for a replacement.

they have confidence in okolbi or he wouldnt have been extended and the steelers wouldnt have passed on mangold in the draft. last year we replaced our veteran long snapper (schneck) with a ufa i believe. probably just a fishing expidition.

The two URFA's i've been hearing alot about are Lee Vickers and Mike Kudla, with Mike Kudla being more of a LB and Lee Vickers being more of a DE. Lee has the size, but he needs to bulk up, and Mike has a very good chance, due to Clark Haggans and Joey Porter's contracts both ending very soon and both rounding 30.

Plus, with all the centers, I have a feeling that Hartings went to the FO at the end of last year and went "Hey, i'm putting in my year's notice. I'm retiring at the end of this season, so you'd better figure out what you're gonna do." That's why we resigned Okobi, and that's why we ended up with 2 of the top 10 centers coming out in this class. We're just prepping for the future. Plus, as the Steelers know, you can never have too many good O-linemen

My concern with Okobi is that he's sat around for quite a while. Heck his career is about 1/3 completed. That's a lot of time with little action.
