I'm a fan of Blount. I don't get it either...

Another move I just don't get.

The Steelers had a million in cap as of this morning. I haven't heard about any restructures. I'm guessing they must have backloaded his contract.

In truth, I think we could have had him for 2 yrs, $3.5 mil. And because he wanted to be here, he probably would have taken it.


The Patriots wanted him back but only offered him a 1yr deal. The Steelers offered two. Therefore, he's a Steeler.

Good luck to him. Bell & Blount should give Steelers a good RB. There line still sucks

The Patriots suck...

They should rename them the New England Brady's... They do not keep their guys anymore.. Name anyone on that team.. I can't... Look how they shit on Vince Wilfork before they sign them... The Rooney's let you make a name for yourself here...

We also lost special teams are Curtis Brown. I don't know how Richardson plays on ST, but perhaps he could fill a similar role and be ready as an emergency CB

not sure how he plays on special teams either but he did impress some people at the East-West Shrine Game:

Arizona's Shaq Richardson a sleeper corner at Shrine Game drills

By Bucky Brooks
NFL Media analyst
Published: Jan. 15, 2014

Arizona CB Shaquille Richardson has impressed scouts with his size, speed and coverage skills this week.



Arizona's Richardson earning second look

Arizona CB Shaquille Richardson has been one of the most impressive corners on the field this week. He has consistently made plays on the ball in 1-on-1 drills, displaying outstanding quickness, footwork and movement skills.

Additionally, Richardson has impressed evaluators with his size/speed combination (6-foot-1, 188 pounds) and his competitiveness in coverage. He has challenged receivers at every turn, earning positive reviews from coaches and scouts in attendance.

I've quizzed several scouts on the west coast about Richardson and received "ho-hum" replies on his regular-season performance. However, I believe those scouts will be forced to revisit his game tape when their bosses catch wind of his play this week.

Don't know if anyone posted this yet, but this is what I thought of when I heard that Pittsburgh signed Blount. We got a steal guys. Bell is still the main man and always will be, but We. Got. A. Steel. ;)

It would be great if he got that kind of blocking down field.

He's going to wear #27. Hopefully, he represents it better than Dwyer. :)

What's up with Mark kaboly? He was talking @Tribliveradio again earlier about how he's only one who isn't "thrilled" with the Blount signing.

This dude is a HUGE downer

As @teegre said, he could have a date with Kate Upton and he wouldn't be thrilled.
