Default isaac bruce could replace randel el

he was cut and has already made a ton of money. im sure other teams will offer him more than the steelers, especially if an extra 7-10 mil is added to the cap. but who knows, maybe he likes the way the steelers operate and would be willing to accept a role.

I'd rather draft a young stud then take a chance with an aging guy who's battled injuries and will be wanting money based on what's he's done in the past and not what he'll be able to muster in the future.

me too. if we could get someone like m. nance in the 2nd round all this would be moot. just good to know there are viable options out there and next years success doenst hinge on overpaying randel el (who i hate to see go.) there could be alot of cheeper better options. im curious what the patriots would be like with a wr corp of bruce, branch, and moulds. the steelers definitely aren as desperate for a wr as phily is. i think bruce would fit in real nice there. (if i were them id try to get brandon lloyd but i dont think sf is gonna let him go)

Isaac would do more then replace ARE, at least on offense as a receiver.

But the $?

And Lloyd was tendered at 1.6 million.

I'd rather see what Quincy Morgan still has to offer as a receiver and draft Michael Robinson in the second round to replace Randle El.

I like that scenario but we could most likely get M-Rob after the second round. I know Bruce is a proven receiver, but I relly think Qunicy can play in the "X" opposite Ward. He has the speed and the build... but I still question his hands.

That's for sure. But Bruce is a good WR. But not what I would pay for in an older vet.

personally i say 95% no but the steelers do have bringing in ty law for a look-see last year as prescedence even thow they knew it was a shot in dark to land him.

i think he will re sign with the rams for a nice sum (4-5 mil/ year) if not potential suitors and teams who can outbid us are philadelphia, cheifs, and n.e.

kind of the same situation with eric moulds. but if it came down to offering either of these guys the same money as what el wants i think the steelers would make the decision for el and show him the door. these guys potentially being free agents may actually make it easier to keep el.

im interested in Steelers fans views on this one:

I, as a Patriots fan, LOVE the play of David Givens. My greatest fear this off season is that they lose him. But if they do, I think the Steelers could do a lot worse than signing this guy. Obviously not the same talent, but he plays the game like Ward. A great blocker, and a clutch, clutch receiver. A winner.
