The Steelers have reportedly re-signed CB Fernando Bryant to a one-year contract.

Good. That is a very good signing. He understands our system and is a skilled veteran.

This FA signing is as earth shattering as the FA signing of Mewelde Moore last year...let's hope it pays similar dividends.

RE-signings don't count. He was already on the team.

Oh Great, we're saved!! Fernando is a nobody. he didn't serve a single purpose for us last year except to fill out a 53 man roster. Yeah, he's so great that since free agency started, he nor his agent have received a single phone call from any other league GM. Look I don't mind cause i'm sure his 1 year deal paid next to nothing in guaranteed money. And IF any of our new drafted DB's show anything in camp, Fernando will be cut ASAP!!

Depth and insurance are good purposes that he filled last year. Positioning to go into the draft without needs is a good thing. This will also push the competition in camp.

Did you not watch the first San Diego game last year? He played pretty well...considering he had about a week with the team. He didn't play much after BMAC came back.

This is a good signing for us. He's not what he used to be, but he can still play and he understands our defense pretty well.

Did you also complain last year when Fox and MeMo were signed? They weren't high profile pickups either, but they sure played a role in us winning it all last season.

You're negativity on the team and the moves it does make has absolutely no merit...in this thread and your other threads you wrote in.
