Default If you were the Steeler FO, what offseason...

I know some whiners only will want every thread to be about the Jets game. Trust me I'm excited about that. With the other teams talking off-season though, it makes me think about our off-season too (after we win the SB).

So with that said, if you were leading the FO, what would be your 7 top offseason moves?

Here's mine:

1. Get Nmandi Asomugha -try to get a discount by telling him how great it would be to be part of Lebeau's defense and have a chance to win Super bowls each year.

2. Resign or Franchise Woodley

3. Resign Ike Taylor

4. Sign a top free agent LT if there is one better than Starks. (if you guys know of any, please post them here).

5. Draft Mike Pouncy to play LG instead of RG

6. Extend Polamalu's contract before the season starts

7. Draft a kicker with the 3rd round pick. Since it is 32nd, it is almost like an early 4th round pick anyway. Only do that if you can get a kicker that looks confident ...not like a nervous rookie. I don't trust Suisham for our long term future.

The reason I put 6 lower is because we have the whole off season. And if that fails, after the 2012 season is over, we can just franchise him. He's not going anywhere.

#2 and #3 are actually done after THIS season so we'd have to act fast.

I really think accomplishing #1 could get us at least 1 more SB if not 2 more. For ONCE I wish they would jump on it.

Asomugha? Seriously?
What are you, Redskins fans? Do you even know what team you support and how they do business?

And a kicker in the third round? Hell why not the first round? Or given Greg Warren's injury history, can't we trade our second round pick to trade UP in the first round to sign a long snapper?

Draft a kicker in the 6th or 7th round. Or wait to sign one in the offseason, Steelers will have like 3 trying out during training camp.

Troy will have his contract extended whenever, not an issue since it will happen.

Asomugha wouldn't come here cheap, even if it is a winning team. Draft a CB in the 2nd round.
Draft a guard in the 1st.

I say draft a tackle in the 3rd round, let him develop under starks and colon.

If you would calm the melodrama you could read better...I already explained the last pick of the 3rd round (ignoring some supplemental picks) is really like an early 4th round pick. If we wait until the last pick of the 4th (that's like an early fifth) then the top 1 or 2 kickers may be gone. If that's the case, we may just choose to wait and get a free agent. A kicker is important and could cost us games in the future (if not this year). Suisham is not the guy.

As far as Nmandi, if you could read, you would see I said "FOR ONCE" I'd like to see them catch the big fish. This is if he can be had for Revis money. It's worth it. I could see us getting to the SB more easily.

Steelers need to draft Wes Byrum to kick. That guy is money and can kick a mile.

I think 4th is reasonable for a top kicker. if not, then might as well wait for a FA. I'd rather not gamble if an awesome one is out there...especially if he is good at KOs.
The reason I said 3rd is because the 32nd pick is like an early 4th. If we wait until OUR 4th 1 or 2 may be gone. The talent will level off after the top 1 or 2.

CB in the 2nd...I guess but keep in mind it is the end of the second. We might get lucky. There's no guarantee one at that position will be better than Butler or Lewis. it might be a long project. Nmandi could help us right away while Ike is still young enough to make a run.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll check him out. people underestimate the importance of a kicker. If his KOs are far and he is solid, we need him. There might be 2-3 games that come down to the kicker next year . It's no joke. Our 3rd is an early 4th people...with our choice because most will wait until the 4th to start drafting kickers...hello?

ETA:

IDK, he is 11/21 in the 40-49 range. He is 16/20 in the 30-39 range. He only attempted 1 kick 50 or more yards in 4 years.

I'm not super impressed...wouldn't waste a pick on him.

I just don't see Nmandi comming to the Steelers, but if I was a GM for the Steelers, I would take a shot at him, after I signed Ike, Woodley, and whoever else needs new contracts thats important to the team.
