Default Not playoff related,,,but Huge news!!

Just a few moments ago, a friend of mine, a fellow steeler fan said that there are reports from 860 AM in Arizona that apparently, WR Larry Fitzgerald has informed the team that he wants to be dealt. And he said he basically only wants to go to the steelers My friend said that the radio said Fitz has a No trade claus in his 4 year deal he signed in 2008,,,so Arizona cannot just deal him to whoever they want.


How great would it be to get Fitzgerald in a steeler uniform in 2011 ? And if heonly wants to go here, I bet we can get him for a 2nd and a 4th round draft pick easily. Cause what other choice will they have ? I mean he can outright just leave them after next season, and they get nothing. Cause part of the deal also included that Fitzgerald cannot in any way be tagged either.


I know this is playoff time, and we can't worry about next season. But how great would a 4 WR unit with Fits and Wallace on the outside, and Ward and Sanders on the Inside with Miller also lined up ?


Lets see Baltimore try to compete with that

Your friend heard him say that on the news? If so, then well. Welcome Larry

I dont really know. We need to find depth in this upcoming draft, and the Steelers already have plenty of wideout talent. You have to be careful with these type of situations to make sure the player is a good fit in or organization and offense. Just look at Cincy, adding TO but still not winning. But yes, I do think Fits could benefit this offense and could be the big receiver Ben always wanted. But it's all speculation at this point anyways.

Would be nice to have a big physical WR like Fitz, but the realist in me doesn't see any chance of this happening. But you're right, it would be awesome to see and Ben would just be in Heaven!

Now this would be amazing.

He's due $7 mil next year and I don't know if we will inherit his signing bonus cap hit or if there even will be a cap but it's an additional $4 mil meaning his cap hit to Arizona is $11 mil next year

We need to keep Woodley, Ike, Timmons, and maybe even Colon. I don't know if there is enough money to go around. If Fitzgerald takes a paycut to come to a winning team like the Steelers, then it may be doable.

You are all right. But if true, and if it costs us little, why not do it ? Fitz is a proven talent. A chain mover. And can take Ward's place when he retires, which will probably be after next season. As for depth, yeah we need another DL for sure. As well as a O-Linemen. But I think Pitt needs to get in the free agent pool for a quality OL. I mean we have young guys in the secondary, and at LB. Use the 1st on the best D-Linemen,,,and then maybe a safety in round 3. Other then that,,we are set.

I posted a thread about this awhile back. My wish was that the Steelers would go after Fitz. He would make a great possession receiver to replace Hines. I had heard that he was unhappy in Arizona. Losing certainly sucks.

There won't be. Top shelf talent like Fitz costs and costs big, and there's no getting around it.
