a deal with a player like vanden bosch will probably be the biggest splash the steelers would even think of making in this off season.

Vanden Bosch, again, is a 4-3 DE. He's a little too big to play OLB, and a little too small as a 3-4 DE. He's listed at 278, but he looks smaller than that to me. Either way, I'd hate to ask the guy to gain weight and have him lose that quick first step.

good point. as stated im happy with keisel an von oelhoffen and whatever youngster we may draft. the point with vanden bosch is if we do pick up any free agents it will not be anyone everybody "ooohs" and "ahhhhs" over. kinda like cedric wilson last year.

i don't anticipate much action in the fa market,, aside from signing our own and all won't get done. we are a team built via the draft and content with keeping key players that are known in the system. i'm curious as to how we are going to deal with hartings and his salary and the center position. is chukkey okobi the answer? i'm not sure,,, go steelers,,

This offseason is going to be hard since we are losing many role players in the defense but we also have to see on the CBA if an agreement is reached or else well have a capless season and the whole league will get f'ed up.
