Default Steelers big day..

So were all these signings a way to take some heat off of Ben or just taking advantage of un-capped year ?

Coincedence or not ?

What say's Steeler Nation?

Doubtful. They needed to improve STs and they did with Allen and Battle. Randle El adds solid depth to the WR position and can takeover as the #4 WR. Clark was an obvious resign.

I seen no downsides to any of these signings, we are now stronger in the secondary, at wr and at ST. This allows them to focus on CB and O line come draft day. Good job overall.

Arnaz Battle Steelers contract a 3 year deal worth around $4 million

....


Will Allen Steelers contract a 3 year deal worth around $4.5 million with 1.5 signing bonus or so.
we're spending like ben in a bar in a college town full of lawyers.

We could probably trade Sweed. The eagles just got a 6th for Reggie Brown lol.
As for Porter, why not for the right price. Can never have too much depth.
