Re: Hunt for three key draftees heats up for Steelers
ben is the highest paid player on the team and one of the highest paid qb's in the league. no player who has received one, has ever played out the entirety of their $100,000,000 contract. ben will likely become the 1st player to do so.
its impossible to call players such as miller, brown, wallace, pouncey (all pro bowlers) 2nd tier talent.
the defense is mostly made up of veterans on their 2nd nfl contract. most of the offense are are on their 1st rookie contracts as we field one of the youngest in the league.
this editorial basically says the younger you are the less talented you are which certainly isnt the case.
pouncey, decastro, gilbert, adams are all 1st and 2nd round draft picks. 2nd tier talent is rarely drafted that high.
max starks, while far from the most talented LT in the league has taken a hometown discount and played on the vet minimum after EARNING the franchise tag 2 years in a row which paid him as a top 5 LT in the league.
i call horse pucky...
