Default Orpheus Roye returns to Pittsburgh

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/trib.../s_583438.html

About seven-eight years too late I say. Man, the D-Line really needs some youth.

I was gonna post the P-G link and you beat me to it

I agree - picking up a 12 year DL vet cut by the Browns is not a good sign for quality DL depth

Well, if it means ridding ourselves of Eason, I'm all for it.

if anything, maybe it will light a fire under the other D-linemen who all sucked last game

not a bad move (fyi, the other lineman they tried to sign failed a physical)

Orpheus Roye may be old, but he's got mad props from me...... I still think he's got some left in the tank, if he doesn't have to play every down.

Roye is about the same age as Kimo VonOlhoffen was the year the Steelers won the Super Bowl and roughly the same age as Kirschke.

He is a much better 3-4 end than Kirschke or Eason, so I say WELCOME BACK!!

Remember when Roye was a wedge buster on special teams his rookie season....amazing!!

Never thought I'd see him back in the Black and Gold. If anything, he can teach some of these youngins a few things about football.
