Default Sign LT

Im not one for holding on to vets to long or signing older players....But LaDianian Tomlinson would be a nice sign for a 3rd down back.

Moore gets hurt, Dwyer does too and has blocking issues Tomlinson would come cheap and be very reliable.

Yes, Baron Batch was a very talented prospect out of Texas Tech and before preseason started he was looking to be the 3rd Down back. They loved his pass catching ability out of the back field and even though Texas Tech never ran the ball he finished with multiple 1,000 yard seasons. He has exceptional blocking ability as well and will definitely be in the mix to get carries next season if Mendenhall cannot make it in the opener

I don't know, he might be onto something there. You think LT can call plays? Maybe he can replace Arians.

Just sayin'.....

We have plenty of leaders on this team we don't need a journeyman to do that. He couldn't lead the Chargers to the promised land what makes you think he knows more about getting there than the numerous players here who have made several trips to the big dance

I actually thought this was about an offensive lineman

LT the running back is shot. We are already over the cap. Can't be wasting dollars on shot running backs

This, could be a smart move, too many intangibles at RB for this upcoming season, LT, I must admit would look good in the Black and Gold!!!! As far as the salary cap goes, the Steelers have always found a way to get under it, they will again this year, LT would be a nice addition and just maybe this team could give him the SB ring he is looking for!
