Default Some Free Agents That Have Value

Interesting releases today - Alge Crumpler, TE and John Welbourn, T.

Welbourn could be an interesting pick-up. He does have value at his position. The only problem would be that he considered retirement a few years ago. He is still somewhat young and could only help. He would have to come to the Steelers at a good rate.

Crumpler would be a great addition when we go two TE's. With him and Miller we would have a great duo and can really do alot on offense with 2 WR & 2TE sets. It would really set up some interesting match-ups.

Any ideas from Steeler Nation!!!!!

steelers used a 3r round pick on spaeth last year, I don't think they will go for a tight in FA. he's young and still has lots to learn

Welbourn could be good , don't know much about him but some competition never hurts, but I still think the way to address the tackle position is through the draft right ow

I'd love to have Alge Crumpler in the B & G, but we have Miller & Spaeth, both of whom are young and have a ton of potential.

As for Welbourn - thanks but no thanks. He's 31 years old and has missed 10 games in 2 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Sounds like he might be a good fit for the Cheatriots* or the Bungles.

For the right price, I would bring Law in... Let him come in on the dime packages...

Also give him a chance to teach some of our youngens how to really play the game. Who knows, he may even take over at CB for a year or two still.

No to Crumpler.

There is a reason why we spent a #1 round pick on Miller and a #3 on Spaeth and we don't even use them enough in my opinion. One of the last things we need on this roster is another TE.

Maybe, this FA market will actually hurt the Oline market value, if so many guys end up on the cut block or trading block, it could drop the cost.

wishful thinking on my part.
