Default It's kind of official, as we expected

Most of us won't be surprised by this. Asomugha too big of a name
with too big a price for Pgh. Most of us knew this would not happen
before it was stated as such. Move on.

It doesn’t take a Steelers insider like Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to know that signing Nnamdi Asomugha to a big contract just isn’t the way that Pittburgh does business.

Bouchette has said numerous times this offseason it was his opinion that Pittsburgh would not pursue Asomugha. He has now officially confirmed it with the team, and can report it won’t happen.

So the Steelers won’t go after Asomugha. The Eagles are reportedly lukewarm about him, although we have our doubts about that.

Teams like the Redskins, Raiders, Texans, and Bucs to name a few make a lot of sense for Asomugha. Asomugha should have a big enough market to come close to Darrelle Revis‘ contract, if he doesn’t top it.

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth/pos...ers-cb-options


Earlier this week, the AFC North blog broke down a list of top free-agent cornerbacks. Two players we identified were Richard Marshall and Carlos Rogers, who could be intriguing options for the Pittsburgh Steelers if they do not re-sign veteran Ike Taylor.


On Thursday we caught up with Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. to get his take Marshall and Rogers.

Matt, let's start by getting your general thoughts on both corners and whether they fit in Pittsburgh.

Matt Williamson: Rogers and Marshall are probably the best two guys out there who would be cheaper corners. They're Steelers type of signings. They came into the league as high picks and Pittsburgh didn't end up getting them. But now they're coming off their first contract and still have a good pedigree. You can see why they were high picks. They're not busts at this level. The problem with both of those guys is neither had a very good year. I think both are better players than they showed last year. I'm sure some of that was playing on a bad team, especially with Carolina. Their offense always went three-and-out and Marshall was on the field a ton.

Could down years by Marshall and Rogers play to the Steelers' advantage in negotiations?

Williamson: Yes. The Steelers probably liked both guys coming out of college, they're not far removed and coming off down years. But all of a sudden they come to Pittsburgh and have LaMarr Woodley and James Harrison coming off the edge and their job gets a lot easier. So I think that could play very much to Pittsburgh's advantage and something they could be strongly considering.
