Default Steelers Tender Two More

Steelers tender two more
Wednesday, March 03, 2010
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

.As expected, the Steelers issued tenders to cornerback William Gay and tight end Matt Spaeth, who join tackle Willie Colon and punter Daniel Sepulveda as restricted free agents when the official opening of free agency begins at the stroke of midnight Thursday.

Gay and Spaeth each received tenders of slightly more than $1 million, as did Sepulveda. Like Sepulveda, each would provide the Steelers with a draft choice if they sign elsewhere and the Steelers did not exercise their right to match the contract.

Gay would bring a fifth-round pick and Spaeth a third-round pick. Sepulveda would bring a fourth-round pick and Colon a first-round pick.

The Steelers did not issue tenders to guard Darnell Stapleton or halfback Carey Davis and thus both will become unrestricted free agents on Friday

I guess letting Gay go exposed for a 5th round pick in return isnt exactly a vote of confidence. Must mean the Steelers are fine with Taylor, Burnett, Lewis, some rookies and free agents.

Spaeth gone for a 3rd, OK - Gay gone for a 5th - not so OK.

Even if we upgrade at corner we still need some young nickle backs - Townsend is just about done, IMO.

This draft will be a real crap shoot.

I would rather have seen the 3rd on Gay and 5th on Spaeth. I hope that Lewis and Burnett are ready to play a lot more this year.
