By Boldin you mean BOWE. I'd gladly take him if Wallace left.

Maybe they think we can buy them with welfare.

That's over $21 million over the cap.......

And you are right, any FA we sign, and there will be more than a few, are going to come cheap or not at all.

This getting younger stuff has to stop somewhere. We will get younger in the draft, we've been getting MUCH younger on offense, yet we have no leadership or anybody that's reliable in the clutch. Hines Ward was truly missed this year, every time Brown or Sanders fumbled and every time Wallace dropped a pass that hit him in the hands I thought of how much better we would have been with the Hines Ward of just a few years ago. With as poor as our WR's performed, Ward may have been a better option even this year. Regardless, Boldin can fill that role now and there's no reason to avoid that because of a guy's age. We have enough under performing youngsters right now, so the thought of a veteran WR who is totally clutch and makes big plays should be welcomed. We most likely can't afford him, and i would be in favor of letting Burress go if we did get Boldin, but I would be willing to place a bet on the Steelers to win the SB next year, before the season even begins.

The real question is, why does every Steeler fan think we should pick this player up, that player up every time they are released...As some one stated earlier, we need young guns so they can be molded into our system. Older players are just looking for the final payday!
