Default Steelers looking at Tracy White

Quote:
The Steelers are looking at White, a fifth-year veteran, as strictly a special-teams player.

The Steelers have a need on special teams since they recently released former special teams co-captain Clint Kriewaldt.

The 6-0, 234-pound White, who has played for three different NFL teams, had 11 tackles for the Packers last season.

Who needs STs players when what we really need is a 7'8 WR for Roethlisberger or an aging DB/safety like Ty Law or a TE like Crumpler?

No idea what the Rooney's are thinking this year. They do this every year to me.

Color me stoopid. But throwing the baby out with the bath water may not be so irresponsible.

You guys are closer to the pulse. But the longer term trend of ART II seems front and center ever since Tomlin got the nod - well perhaps even earlier. Cheap?...the apple doesn't far fall.

And Ben. Shut up. Speak when spoken to. As soon as the golly green giant clears waivers in Utopia we'll talk about an upgrade in the WR position. The mere fact that Ben hasn't mentioned his beleagured line while spewing crap about WR height is pathetic.

Organic growth is painfully slow. Painful. BUT WORTH IT.

With them 11 tackels he probably wants a contract like faneca.

It does what exactly?

Gives hope to those of us who feel the FO is at least addressing and attempting to fix a weakness on this team (STs) instead of screaming out for every high priced FA (who we can't pay anyways) that hits the market? I guess shame on me.

Personally, I would rather see our glaring problems fixed or attempting to be fixed, rather than seeing Randy Moss, Crumper or Law in a Steeler uniform. I know, it's crazy.
