I'm kind of surprised there has been no action made by the Steelers yet. IMO at this point it will either be a last second match, or Pittsburgh will not match. I think if it was going to be a definitive match, the team would have acted by now.

He's gone and we get a 3rd rounder for him! Instead of letting him walk next year for a 2015 conditional pick that would probably be a 5th or 6th.

Basically at this stage we would be trading a 3rd round pick to get Sanders.

I would not recommend that we do that

what's the deadline for matching the offer? The only thing I've seen is that we have until Sunday. Well, here it is. I would imagine if they were going to match it they would have by now.

Sorry Ben. No Wallace, and now it looks like we are going to lose Sanders. Hope Miller is ready to go.

The Steelers have not finalized a decision on matching Emmanuel Sanders' offer sheet with New England, according to sources, and the decision will likely to come down to Monday.

The team has until Monday to make a final decision with a five-day window to match the $2.5 million offer sheet to the wide receiver, who is a restricted free agent....

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been lobbying the coaches hard, sources said, pushing for Sanders to be retained after already losing Mike Wallace in free agency. Roethlisberger has called head coach Mike Tomlin several times, sources also said.

No word on whether Tomlin recognizes Ben's number on caller ID and has let Ben's calls go to voicemail

Take the 3rd, unless your willing to get guys to take a pay cut so that we can lock Sanders up long term

I don't want to see sanders walk and we get no good compensation

Hopefully we are at least doing the maths on what re-signing him would cost, though I too suspect that if we were going to match the offer, we'd have done it by now. Perhaps we're trying to get someone to re-structure before we make an offer to Sanders, but as I understand it, matching the Patriots offer won't mean we breach the cap, though it might put us tight against it when we sign our draft players.

Miller's injury is such that anything we get out of him before November is a bonus - it's a 9-10 month injury. That's not taking into account that the dude is Superhuman, though.
