I admitted earlier that this was not what would happen; I know that the steelers are not active in free agency. maybe if you had read the whole thing you would have seen.



I didn't know that the salary cap site was wrong... even with that 7 million less, we could get all those guys other than briggs who we wouldnt have gotten anyway.

after writing the thing i realized briggs would not fit but i didnt want to get rid of that part of the post.

I realize that some of the players are not bad, but there were better options for possibly cheaper (Keisel/Spicer)

On steelers salary cap site it said m. smith's cap hit for next year was almost 7 million thats why i wanted to dump him, especially if he would be a backup.

Preacher, thanks for the backup, i wanted to put dansby in there but the Cards are supposedly going to franchise him so i didnt think the 2 first rounders would be worth it.

i like keisel too but i thought spicer had better stats and could probably go for cheaper while helpign the 4-3 transition
I didnt give any insight into your football or Steelers knowledge. Maybe if you had read what I said...

I am personally all for getting Dansby or Suggs if we could, but it will never happen.

We will go after medium ranged FAs (like backups and potential starters) and scrubs as always. I dont always agree with that method, but I trust the Rooneys.

Funny how we cheer with one side and groan with the other because of this issue. I am ALWAYS frustrated during FA time. However, I am always thankful for them come game time.

and thats what has plagued us with signings like mahan and wilson... (dead weight as someone put it earlier) the one signing i do think worked out was duce but that was only for one season... as he became ineffective after our 15-1 season with the emergence of willie parker

Tuman was drafted in 1999 and will be 32 come opening day..

As far as replacing him with a blocking tight end in this year's draft, we already have.

Though he was a great asset in the red zone earlier in the season, Spaeth was brought in for his height and for his block prowess.

In college, he played for a Minnesota offense that ran the ball well and, like the Steelers, primarily.

I don't feel like he has been given enough of a chance to show his stuff as a blocking (and receiving) TE in the NFL, I'm sure the coaching staff shares that sentiment.

I would be surprised to see the Steelers take another TE in this draft. The F.O. is VERY aware that there were some big question marks around taking one in the third round last April and I'm sure they are more interested in working with the second-year, first day draft pick and shopping for depth elsewhere with valuable draft picks.

I can see us cutting him and the Patriots picking him up and him becoming an All-Pro

Because in three years he has managed an average of only 27 catches per year (thats less than 2 catches per game)...387 yards per year (a little over 24 yards per game)....and LESS THAN 1 TOUCHDOWN per year

Right. At the league's minimum salary, this would be great. Unfortunately, Wilson is payed considerably more than that.

Here is my hope:

3) Sign WR Bryant Johnson or Devery Henderson. Both are quality number 3 recievers.
Bryant Johnson and Hackett are the same age...but Bryant has put up double the catches and yards that Hackett has. If we can't sign Hackett we sure as heck wont get Johnson!!!!

Hackett is a much better reciever. Numbers lie. He's had injury issues which have hampered his production, which will ultimately cost him alot of money.

Johnson is a great number 3, but nothing special as a number 2.
