Default Orlando Pace cut

Can't say I'm overly shocked. How much money will he be after? More than we'll pay, I'm sure.

Sadly, he'd probably still be better and cheaper than Starks. And he might even last longer, since we're apparently never going to get a long-term deal done with ol' Max and we can't keep franchising him forever.

Default Orlando Pace

Anybody interested??

Maybe move Starks to RT, Colon to RG and Orlando to LT for a couple years for Hills or draft picks to develop?

I would love to have him. Say he gets healthy and he is an All-Pro.

Heard this on the radio tonight and was thinking he might be a good addition to the Steelers, but again the age and injury concerns are significant.

He's listed at 6-7, 325 pounds - BIG guy. As a 12-year vet, he'd come cheap(er). Probably worth a visit by the Steelers.

I agree with Jazz, including the same reservations about age and injuries.

So..........everybody here hacks Marvel Smith and wants to kick him out the door, but suddenly thinks Orlando Pace is the answer.

No Thanks. I am praying to the football gods that William Beatty falls to us at #32, but I'm gonna need help with that one.

Pace missed too many games and had serious contract issues involving holdouts. He was one a great tackle. But he is definitely not anywhere near what he once was. I don't think he would settle for a minimum contract. Before we get so caught up, lets see what the line looks like after most of the year together and then have them go through OTA's and training camp.
