Please, God, NO!

Rossum would've only cost the Steelers $770,000 in 2008, but they have Willie Reid ready to handle punts, if he can stay healthy. It's safe to that say Rossum is no longer the fastest man in the NFL.
I think a guy that isn't a danger to muff every damn punt that comes his way is worth $770 Grand, but I guess that's just me. I also think Reid has amply demonstrated that he CAN'T handle punts. Hell, it was his inability to field punts that brought Rossum to the team to begin with. Hopefully this move won't cost us games like it did in '06 with Colclough.

Well putting this in connection with the other story I read about the Steelers "will be taking the best player in the draft and not just addressing position issues"

Dare we draft Felix Jones to be the Return man and 3rd down back?

Oh man, that would be so cool!!!!

WOOOOO PIG SOOOIE!!!

Not a thing. The draft is HEAVY at RB and since Dallas is behind us, and they want him bad, we can either trade the pick with Dallas and still get a good Olineman or we can just take Jones and put him on our roster and let him return kicks and cover kicks and be a solid 3rd down back to spell Parker.

That olineman out of Virginia is actually looking pretty good. Watched a quick story on him and apparently, he can play ever position on the O-line.

Not a bad guy for Depth.

finally Kriewaldt is gone! this guy was a waste imo, he's made his share of good plays in the past, but until recently he's been a roster spot waste

without Tuman I guess dekker and boyd will fight for the 3rd TE spot for Arians 3 TE sets, I really doubt they draft a TE even in the 7th round when we they a large collection on the roster already

Rossum.........he was a great guy, he loves the burgh and had always been his dream to play here, but yeah, he's not the "fastest man in the nfl" anymore. thanks for the 49ers TD return though

however I thank each of them for being part of the black an gold

that said........bring on the younger players

that gives the steelers $2.9 mil more to work with. it leaves $566,667 in dead cap money.

they need to restructure ward's contract. he is a $6.7 mil hit this year. that's a little high, IMO.

I liked Rossum. Had we had a better ST unit, I think his production would have increased.

However in this day and age in the NFL, we need multi-talented guys that can be the return man and also be productive in another position on the field.

ST specialists are a waste in my opinion.
