Well, now I can look forward to them cutting Lee "Stone Hands" Mays again this summer.

Yeah, pretty much. That's why I'm not really making a big deal over this signing. It's not as if we signed the guy long term and are planning on lining him up opposite of Hines.

Everytime I play Madden in franchise mode, Mays is on my roster for about as long as it takes me to get to the "Release Player' menu. I wish the Steelers would think like me.

Another thought, I was reading an ESPN article on restricted free agents (link below), and I was intrigued by a receiver. He may cost too much, but I believe compensating with a third round pick (especially if we have a comp third rounder) could be worth it. I am speaking of Minnesota WR Nate Burleson. I know he was injured last year, but I agree with the artice in saying that he could be an excellent #2 if he were healthy. I say push Cedrick Wilson instead of handing the #2 slot to him. Thoughts?

I think it's normal for the Steelers to always have a handful of "projects" hanging around. Some work, some don't. Mays isn't too bad though. It's not like he's gonna be thrown the ball any more than a couple o' dozen times a season.

Its an insurance signing.. just in case type of thing. Mays knows the offense and can return kicks in a pinch. He'll become expendable during training camp if/when we pick up some decent WR's in the draft or FA.

I'd rather have a Rookie Free Agent than Mays at this point. At least with a rookie there's a chance for improvement, with Lee Mays you know you're getting a ST WR that couldn't catch a ball back in the days of Stick 'Em.

BTW, I like the Burleson idea
