Say what you want about Colon's injuries (that just reads funny), but he is the biggest spark on the offensive line. Pouncy is good and Starks is stable, but Colon is the fire. When he grinded Burflict, it completely revitalized our team. After that, the Steelers were on a tear until Ben's injury. Then Colon went down and the O-line never was the same all season. I think the Steelers will keep him. If they don't keep him, they will trade him for an upgrade in another position (RB?).

With the exception of Starks and Pouncey; and excluding the young guys; the rest are suspect. If we are trimming fat; none of these guys should be over looked because there are no BEASTS in that group!!

I like a 2013 starting line of this.

LT-Starks
LG-Colon
C-Pouncey
RG-DeCastro
RT-Gilbert

Backups
Adams at either tackle
Foster at either guard
Legursky at Center or guard
Beachum at tackle

If Adams can beat out either guy for the starting tackle job, great. You'll need a swing tackle as there will be injuries.

Colon is a beast in the run game, but how many games has he played the last 3 years? He couldn't even make it through this year after "surviving training camp". Foster has been playing well and someone will be willing to gamble on Colon so one of them will not be here next year, and I rather it be Colon. We already have enough players that have the potential to do things, we need guys that CAN get it done, and Foster did that pretty well. Actually Foster has always been a decent pass blocker and appeared even better this year. Sad thing is that with Pouncey, Gilbert, DD, Foster, Starks, Adams, Colon, Beachum, and Legursky, we still have problems piecing together an O line at times, like the end of this year.

I wouldn't be surprised if they let Legursky go in favor of someone who can actually play both center and guard.

I like what Steelerchad above said. Although it is not very likely at all, it's best case scenario. I think Starks stays and Foster is gone. He will get an "Urbik like" payday and probably more. Good player but he was a UDFA so this is likely his 1 payday as I think Kabloy wrote about and posted to Sulia. Either way, at least we don't need to draft oline!!!

Kinda ridiculous that one of the most Stable players on the Line has to wonder about his future on it

Take into account that Tomlin hates to dress OL. In his mind there are 3 too many linemen on the roster now, and Legursky is adequate at the most positions. Next man up, ability not required.

If I had to bet it'd be on the team letting Starks go
They probably want Gilbert and Adams to be the starting tackles, but it's be nice to see Starks stick around, he's a solid T and Ben loves him

I would want Starks back in the worst way - he is the one thing that is reliable about this O-line. Ben's blindside is pretty much in-tact. As I've said before - our problems are from the right, which is the complete opposite problemof most average-below average O-lines.

He's a 2xSB O-line anchor and a top 10 LT out of anyone in today's teams. I'd let another defender go if it meant he could stay. Of course, you do realize he will now be jinxed after I've said all this.

I love Colon's attitude - just not enough body of work to keep him around.
