He's fine!! trust me...its not like he has to run for 20 yards every time...he's strong!! we have a guy that always gets open and he finds them...trust me we will be fine...i just worry about the non calls for roughing the passer!!

he's what I'd call serviceable but not a long term solution. With 2 tackles banged up, we need insurance there. He's not going to make the pro bowl, but he should be good enough for 3-4 games if we need him

If I recall, Essex has played both RG and LT in his Steelers career. Those are the positions that we are thinnest at on the line.

If experience is worth anything, then this is a good signing.

So they signed a guy who couldn't hold onto a starting job while here, and didn't get a feakin' sniff in free agency... smh

essux was let go for a reason. the fact that they are now calling him back means that someone on roster isn't living up to expectations. the question is who ? gilbert ? williams ? foster ? hills ? scott ?

more like it means 2 of our tackles have knee injuries. at least one of them should be back in time for the season, they just need essex as insurance.
