Moore would be great but a team that needs a qb will take him.
Foote's replacement
Larry Grant san francisco -play well two years ago replacing willis.stuck behind willis

Foster and Colon replacement
Kevin Boothe Giants. Starting left tackle who's strength is run blocking.Can also play center
Donald Thomas Pats looked good this year in limited play.

agree about Otah take a chance

allens replacement
Corey Lynch strong special teams player who played well in limited time at strong safety

If Lewis is not signed.
Leodis McKelvin CB Buffalo has more starting Experience than Lewis.Think with Lake help Could be real good

Injury risk players to look at
Louis Delmas FS-good young player that can not stay healthy.Because of this will not get offered large contract.May be able to get at reseasonable price with large bonus if he is healthy and plays all16 games.Since he has never playerd a full season the bonus could be a NLTBE and would not count against cap

Tracy Porter never played a full season same bonus as above.Sign for depth

Well, given our OC connections, it would be nice to snag Bowe from KC, but i doubt that will happen. Other than RB the only real need from FA would be OLB. There are a couple out there so maybe.

QB- Vince Young, Tyler Thigpan or David Carr
RB- Jackie Battle- big power back and can catch out of the backfield, will come cheap
RB- Joique Bell- love this guy, he is restructed so he would be worth picks if low picks
WR- Buress- no brainer

Not worried about OL as we can draft players fo the line. We have depth even with the loss of starks and colon

On defense, you dont see many free agent signings that often. Usually we bring back players like McFadden and Foote or draft based on the completxities of the defense.

If we look FA, look at anyone available on a Dom capers or Jim Haslett defense as those are very similar to Dick Lebeaus

In fact there is an ILB who took over for Desmond Bishop and DJ Smith on the inside when they got hurt and he played awesone and he is a FA. Cant think of his name.

Ahmad Bradshaw has just been released by the Giants. Giants fans sad to see him go. I'm not a big rahrah free agent type, but I'd look at this as a possibility. Bradshaw would immediately bring attitude to our backfield and that's exactly what we need. Would be a nice splash for once.

Wouldn't mind Bradshaw. Better than rolling out anybody currently on the roster. I'd still rather have Jackson though if we're going for FAs.

(Also, David Wilson will absolutely tear it up for the Giants next year)

When he's healthy.

He's always seems to be injured and lately more frequently.

Would't go near Greene or Hillis. Greene = Dwyer.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have Expressed Interest in CFL OL Jovan Olafioye

By Kyle Curry on February 6, 2013

The Pittsburgh Steelers have expressed interest in Jovan Olafioye an offensive lineman from the Canadian Football League.

Olafioye has played the last three seasons with the B.C. Lions. Olafioye was the best offensive lineman in the CFL in 2012 and is hoping to make an NFL roster in 2013.

Olafioye has the ability to play both offensive tackle positions. He went unstaffed out of North Carolina Central and signed with the Lions of the CFL.

Fifteen teams have worked out Olafioye, but according to KFFL the Steelers have interest in signing him.

The Steelers have Marcus Gilbert, Mike Adams, and Kelvin Beachum who can all play tackle, but they will lose Max Starks this off-season.

Olafioye is only 25 so he is equal to an older draft pick, but he already has three years of Pro Football experience.

He also possess tremendous size and is listed at 66″ and 325 pounds.

If the Steelers sign him they will have fewer holes to fill on the offensive line. Olafioye could also fight for a starting job if he is as good as advertised.

Rumor is that the Ravens offered him a contract before. He rejected it as it didn't meet his asking price. If that's true I say the Steelers' chance of getting him is very slim.

I would love to see Shonn Greene in a Steelers jersey! From a homer standpoint being a Hawkeyes fan I'd love nothing more than to see one of my favorite Hawks ever join my favorite NFL team. As a Steelers fan and football fan in general I think he could honestly be a good fit. He's not a burner but he doesn't go down easily and I think he was a victim of teams stacking up to take away the run from the Jets because Mark Sanchez just doesn't put fear into the heart of any defense. I think he's a good back and he seems to stay relatively healthy despite taking a pounding and dishing it out as well. I think he's better than Mendenhall, Jonathan Dwyer, or Isaac Redman for that matter. I can imagine he wouldn't command a huge contract either.
