I'll be happy if we keep Hope or draft a new FS. I still like Mike Logan for the start... :P
It was McFadden - my bad.

Coke also came from a small school (just like Ike), and when they drafted him, they knew it was going to takle a couple years to get him up to speed. I'm positive the Steelers will cut Deshea and go with Ike, Chidi, Coke and McFadden as their 4 next year (and probably draft someone laste and pick up a FA). Townsend will be 31 next year, and the Steelers will NOT make the same mistake with him (signing big $$$ deal for his waning years) that they did with Chad Scott.

Chad Scott and Washington getting big pay days really set me off, i was always complaining that we needed new corners, not those two. Chad before the knee injury wasn`t bad, but his big pay day came after the knee

..and, until Ben got all his bonuses, Chad Scott was the highest paid Steeler in HISTORY! You cannot award players with big contracts based only on past performance, but on what kind of performance you anticipate from them in the future. Townsend no doubt will want some kind of 4-5 year deal, and he'd be 35-36 at the end of it. If he'd take a 1 year deal, fine, but some team out there with short term needs will be willing to give him a longer deal for more money just to take advantage of the year or two he has left in him...

I would give Townsend a 5 year deal if that is what he wants. NFL contracts are really backloaded anyway, most of the big cash is towards the end. The players mostly just care about the big signing bonus so they are instant millionaires and can go out and get the bling bling and Mercedes SUV.

Give Townsend a 5 year deal, seriously backloaded, with a nice ($3m) signing bonus so he stays. Then after 4 years we replace him.

That's how it works everyday in the NFL.

He has one more year left in him, if that, and by signing him, we delay the inevitable battle between Coke and McFadden, and I'm 100% sure whomever wins that battle will make the defense stronger than it is now.

I just don't see the Steelers signing Townsend...sorry.

I think they should let go of Deshea too... I know he may be our best coverman, but we have drafted corner early in the last couple drafts and it is time to let them play. We saw Scott and Washington lose a step around this time in their career after singing a contract extension.
