Default NFL.com confirms Steelers are looking at LeCharles Bentley

8 teams have looked at LB. 1 of them is Pittsburgh.

28-year-old centers with two Pro Bowls on their resume are not easy to find. So even though he has not played in two seasons, LeCharles Bentley is being looked at by at least 8 teams.


According to NFL. com .





-The website reports that Buffalo, Cincinnati, Miami, Oakland, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, San Francisco and Seattle are interested.





MY TWO AND A HALF CENTS:

I think Bent- but hopefully not broken would compete with Hartwig for the start. (after all the guy hasn't played in two years) If signed. I see the signing as a long shot for now........

But it is interesting this being reported in the shadow of Dookie's (Najeh Davenport) release from the team.

Smells like some cap space is being freed up for a reason.

Center or D Line appear to be the only reasons to me.

Or to make room for the signing of the drafted players.

But I hope it is to bring on Bentley!!!

There is simply no comparison.

One sat out smoking bowles, communing with nature, and dropping weight (how he did that with the munchies I don't know! Yeah, I am probably showing my age with the munchies quote).

The other had surgery, had an infection, then worked over the last year and a half to get back to playing shape.

You think those two are an equal comparison?

That's an adorable video......

Oh......yeah..........Bentley........

You guys don't want Bentley !! He'll expect Hartwig to just step aside and GIVE him the starting spot at C !!

Is Tomlin that kind of guy ??

....well, neither is Crennel !!

that's quite an oversimplification of the situation in Cleveland. He was slated to be a 3rd stringer at center and a 4th string at Guard... with not a lot of hope to move up.

the man still wants to play. So the team let him go. If he comes to Pittsburgh, he will be given the opportunity to outright WIN the position from Hartwig and Mahan. He would ALSO probably be given the opportunity to win the LG position.

What we guys want is to see some competition in training camp at a spot that was not an area of strength last year for this boards team.

If that means bringing Hartwig in plus Bentley or Datish to compete with Mahan and Stapleton then I am happy for that.

Bring on Bentley I say, as does the majority of other Steelers fans on this board.
