Default Interest in Keyshawn????

Would the Steelers be wise to pursue Keyshawn Johnson????

He is a well schooled possession reciever who has caught at least 70 balls for the last three c seasons...he is an incredible blocker....a fantastic possesion receiver on 3rd down.

He might be able to be had relatively cheap....considering that only three teams have shown luke warm interest so far in the offseason....Oak, GB, and Minn.

None of those teams are exactly SB contenders.....

Ask yourself....Would you rather have a guy who does a fairly decent Hines Ward impersonation, especially on third down....... or are you willing to watch Cedric the entertainer for yet another season of slow breaks, dropped balls, and pass intereference complaints?

I am not a gigantic Keyshawn fan by any stertch of the imagination but it would intrigue me to add another weapon to this O....especially at WR when you consider Arians plans for 4 wide, under center formations.

We already have that guy ... his name is Hines Ward. Seriously, Hines does fufill all those requirements and with Holmes on the other side I think we are set at WR. We need someone to stretch the field as our slot receiver but that guy is not name Cedric. Hopefully Nate or Willie will step up.

For a coach who has stressed "character" since being hired and one who has witnessed Keyshawn's five year old outbursts first hand while in TB, I strongly doubt Tomlin would welcome the signing. Just a guess on my part.

While I'm not crazy about our WR core (CW in particular), I would pass on Keyshawn Johnson. Too much baggage. That's the last thing Ben, Santonio and Tomlin need.

Hines is awesome and far better than keyshawn ever was but I wouldn't mind him helping holmes with his hands and he wouldn't be a bad slot receiver especially on third downs. If you add him along side hines that would be some good blocking and probably open up some nice holes for fast willie to break on through. Either way with or without keyshawn, the steelers will rise aqain under the reign of mike tomlin and once again be the champs.

Yep, as long as we have Hines, no need for an aging possession receiver. Now, god forbid, Hines was to suffer a longer term injury, and Keyshawn was available, I would consider his signing a positive. I'm not a big fan of Keyshawn, but he was productive last year and he really doesn't seem to be all that much of a disruptive force anymore.

But MeShawn has left most of that attitude behind. The last few years he's come across really humble, happy not to be the number one man. I think it'd be a pretty good signing, certainly an improvement over CW, who may take the cake as least favourite current Steeler. But aren't the Steelers in cap trouble? I can't see them being able to afford him even if they wanted. But I'd agree w/ coachspeak, if they could they should he'd help with the 4 reciever sets and the young recievers and as I said I think he's left most of his attitude behind.

I agree Chronocross, we have a way better version of that type of reciever named Hines Ward. What I'd like to see is a Buress clone get signed.
