Default Steelers Trade For Patriots RB

The Steelers have traded an undisclosed draft pick for New England UDFA Patrick Cobbs.

http://www.boston.com/sports/footbal.../reiss_pieces/

Cobbs has had a nice preseason racking up some yardage with the run and catching out of the backfield.

Yours truly suggested something like this should happen, though i'd have preferred a LBer to a draft pick.

Staley to be cut?

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

As if we didn't have enough wastes on space on the roster.

Are we trying to go 8-8 this season?

Interesting... So what does this mean for Staley? What's the 411 on Cobb's? Is he a big or small back?

He's a throw away. Not even as good as Humes.

I'm thrilled we're getting rid of a proven NFL running back in favor of an unproven nobody from a horrible D-IAA program. That's certainly a reason to celebrate.

If Parkers gets hurt, we're done for the season.

Thanks 83. It looks like he is just a tad bit shorter than Willie.

I would put him the small back category, I thought he was being brought in as a potential replacement for Kevin Faulk - though he shows a little more in terms of pure running strength.

I think he is a nice pick up - he has some fumbling issues, but then Tiki Barber had them until alot later in his career.

He has a good attitude and really raised a few eyebrows in New England with his game, unfortunately we are loaded at RB (which is pretty rare for us) this year.

Maybe he is more of a back-up to Willie rather than a direct replacement of Staley.

Never seen the kid play so I'm not going to pretend I know how he's going to pan out. I'll take the wait and see approach. Actually give the kid a chance.
