Default Steelers eyeing T.J.Duckett

I just read an artical from PPG that the steelers are trying to trade there 5th round pick for Duckett. I said a while back that the Falcons wanted to get rid of him and this would be a great move on our part to acquire him.

Thats what I`m talking about, I mentioned Duckett over and over , when we passed on White just trust our brain trust, they will make the right moves.

I mentioned this in a thread a few days ago.. the falcons have lead the league in rushing the last 2 years in a row.. Granted Vick had something to do without but Duckett is no push over either..he's been productive and maybe he could have his rebirth with us

Once again if this trade does go as planned, Duckett would be a steal for a fifth. And we wait until others give up on the big backs then we get them for a steal, ala Bettis and Staley, all three would have been high picks that we waited a few years and put them in the right system, for a bargain price

This is like de-ja-vo. (Excuse the spelling if its wrong) This could be the second coming of J.B. I've seen Duckett play a few times and would fit in with our style of playing.
In the words of Eric B. & Rakim (Old School Rappers) Duckett can definately "move the crowd".

Talking Re: Steelers eyeing T.J.Duckett

After that bonehead move passing on White we better get someone like T.J. Otherwise this could be a long season without a big back in that system.

Steelers wheeling, dealing with eye on veteran running back
Sunday, April 30, 2006

By Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers are considering making a trade for a veteran running back today and speculation is centered on big Atlanta back, T.J. Duckett.


Duckett (6-0, 254) has fallen out of favor under a new regime in Atlanta and the Falcons yesterday drafted his replacement, Jerious Norwood, a running back from Mississippi State on the third round.


The Steelers have only a pick in the fifth, sixth and seventh round available to trade but the Falcons want to get rid of Duckett and might take a fifth-rounder in return.


"I would take him in a minute, he's a load,'' said Ron Hill, the Falcons former director of player personnel when they drafted Duckett. "He's a great kid, too."


Duckett was drafted in the first round in 2002 from Michigan State. He rushed for 380 yards with a 3.1-yard average last season but scored eight touchdowns. His best season was 2003 when he rushed for 779 yards and 11 touchdowns. He's never had 200 carries in a NFL season.

I'd like to see it. We haven't drafted an HB yet, is there something in the works with Duckett as we type?
