I like this signing...It fills two holes...one at depth for our OLB's..and the second as a special teamer. (runs a 4.61 forty)

I think this assures everyone that a LBer can be taken off all draft boards.

Exactly....OG/OT/C/DL/S/CB...are now the higher priorities..six spots in a 6 round draft.

i was reading the bio. on him...said he had 10 tackles (9 solo) in the season finale against the n.y. jets. does anyone remember anything about that game and what kind of impact he had? could this be the "diamond in the rough" player that the steelers have found in the past?

it would be nice if he had the same impact that a former FA jet linebacker has had...

man our defense could be looking goooooooood next year.

Kiesel/Draft pick ... Hampton/Hoke ... Smith

Harrison ... farrior/foote/timmons .... woodley

If we can get a solid player at S across from troy ... and a HEALTHY troy (which i don't think we've seen in two years) .... Ike B-mac and Townsend should be solid.

This is a pretty deep corner class ... I REALLY like this idea, Moving Townsend to Safety for a year, and draft a corner in the second round or so

Townsend and Troy at safety

Ike B-mac and draft pick ... In order ... (if we went first round, Aquib Talib or Leodis Mckelvin (sp?) ... and in the second B. Flowers or Cason)
