i want us to pick up a decent wr FA.. not randy moss, but there are a number of taller guys available that could get the job done. our draft priority will be the both sides of the line.. no sense wasting a pick on another fred gibson.

http://www.nfl.com/players/walteryou...e?id=YOU619803


he has some pretty amazing stats.jk, no offense walt. this guy is a solid guy with hines speed(not quickness but speed). he is kind of a tweener, he has the build and speed of a TE and the hands and strength of a WR. he isnt bad though, for all you madden players check out madden05 and he is with the carolina panthers.
I have always wanted Walter Young on the starting roster. But there is down falls to this. Walter still has not got down running correct routes for plays. Ya he had a pretty good time in NFL Europe and looked great. He has great hands, but it falls back to his route running.
Walter was drafted in 2003 by the Panthers, he has been trying to become a better route runner since then and has not panned out because the kid just does not get it. If he cannot get it in 4 years he is not going to get it in his 5th year of bouncing around and not getting signed.
So even tho I like the kid he is not the future nor will you see him again. Teams will not take no more chances of a waste of a time on a player who just does not learn and execute good.

More than likely his chance will now be given to Dallas Baker.

they should just use young and the only route he should run is a streak by the sideline.. all he has to do is run straight and jump... lol. it's basically the only thing he knows how to do..

Nah, 19ward86 could be right. Who knows" The Steelers kept Willie Reid on their roster all season and we all know what a big contributer he was.

As 19ward86 pointed out, the Steelers aren't going to go out and bag a big-time free agent WR so I could see them keeping another project, such as Reid, on the active roster next season. Young certainly couldn't contribute any less than Reid.

1. Cut Young Reid and Wilson.
2. Bring up Dallas Baker.
3. Draft a "Big" WR for Ben.
4. Go get a FA WR like Bernard Berrian, Andre Davis or Johnson from AZ.

We had our big tall wr plex and, he went for the money like everyone else. Plex had a great game the other night against the packers. Although he whined and complain alot around here while he was in the burgh. I big tall wr would be nice but, we have other issues like the o-line, special teams, and tackling on defense.

unless we get a free agent i think it is dallas baker or walter young, i dont see the rooneys doing anything in the draft because we need other positions to be filled. the free agency is basically a pool of guys that are about to be overpaid. the steelers have stayed away from free agency for 75 seasons and i have a feeling that the 76th isnt going to be different.
