Default King: Tiki to Pgh

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...or-pittsburgh/

Sometimes King just blows farts out there, with no factual support
whatsoever, and this is one of those cases. No way does Pgh
sign Tiki for many reasons.

1. Too old
2. Too high profile
3. Too much a douche
4. Too old
5. Offers nothing
6. Team disrupter
7. Thinks he's way more awesome than he is (see failed TV career)
8. Way too old

King is a clown. He occasionally gets a few things right, but he
is wrong more often than he is right.

Love to have him....He is looking for a chance and to prove a point. He is down and out. Great motivators!

He can take Moore's roster spot as far as I'm concerned. Does he have anything left? I doubt it. 5 years is a long time away. Old legs are not good at the running back position.

Show me the list of RBs who were any good at 36. Any?
Even if he was some how decent, he will go down with
an injury for sure.

I would give him a chance at becoming the new 3rd down back. Just my opinion...

I don't see it. Even to sign to camp (if there is one) and seeing
if he can play is probably taking away from someone else who
does have a chance to make it, with 21-year-old legs instead of
36-year-old legs. Plus, the guy was a locker room cancer
and created dissension in the team. Not good. He is not
well-liked by his former teammates.

While I'm not exactly expecting it, I don't think King was making things up. Someone inside the Steelers orginization with power is considering it, so if it happens, I really can't see where it would hurt? The potential benifit of Tiki taking over the role Mewelde Moore has filled the past 3 seasons could be immense. I hope it happens.

I hope Franco comes back - he could really help us. However, when
players come back, they don't do it using a time machine. I thought
Tiki was underrated his last 4 years of playing. But it's not 2005 anymore.
We won't be getting _that_ Tiki
