DT 24 Chris Cooper UFA 7 years 6-5/285 Nebraska-Omaha Seattle

anyone look interesting? perhaps shaun cody? dewayne robertson, recently released by the broncos, might not be that bad at a DT, rather than a NT. that's if his price is right. he is a little on the short-side at 6' 1".

the steelers definitely need some youth along the D-line. they can't keep putting it off.

even tho tank had his issues... i wouldn't mind if the steelers went after him,,, his was the back up nt in dallas and did make plays...

still relatively young.. and he shouldn't be asking for too much money

If Gabe Watson could drop 20lbs then he might be more effective as a backup NT. He needs some jenny craig.

I like Shaun Cody he could be a decent pickup and I don't think he would be asking for a whole lot of money

I'd say that 90% of that list is rubbish for the 3-4. What few are left would almost all have to move to the DE spot (or bulk up a bit more to play the NT.)

True, it looks like the best FA guy left that is a 5-technique is Olshansky. Chris Canty got tagged by the Cowboys.

Well, I liked what I saw of Shaun Cody in college, but haven't heard a hell of a lot about him since, so maybe that means we're better off without him...

I think Cody could be a good De in a 3-4. He has the size and lets be honest he could use the change of scenery. When was the last guy to succeed in Detroit?

I say get Haynesworth. Robertson and Cody suck, Tank is a problem waiting to happen. Haynesworth is the best option here
