Unless the offer from New England was through the roof, it's very likely you'll see the Steelers match it.

Well if it is indeed 2.5 million, that is about twice what the Steelers tendered him for. With his original round tender he would have had a cap hit of 1.3mil if he signed it.

But we can get 4 years of production out of a draft pick, even though they aren't proven. Sanders will give us one year of production and then will need to be signed for more money long term.

They're saying that if the Steelers decide to match the offer, they will have to cut someone or restructure contracts so they still have enough room under the cap to sign drafted players. Not only that, but he could then leave after 1 year and get nothing for him. At this point, they might be better off taking the draft pick to avoid future financial hardships and getting no compensation for him if he leaves after the 1 year contract expires. This is what happens when another team knows you're vulnerable. They could force your hand because they hold all the cards.

Well if he only signed for 2.5 million we don't have to restructure or cut anyone. We have enough cap space for that right now and then in June when Willie Colon is cut we have 5.5mil cap space to sign draftees.

You're excitable.

Anyway, here's my dream draft:

R1. Kenny Vaccaro / Safety
R2. Alex Okafor / OLB
R3. Blidi Wreh-Wilson / CB
R3. Le'Veon Bell / RB
R4. Shawn Williams / Safety
R5. Rodney Smith / WR
R6. Marcus Davis / WR
R6. Nico Johnson / LB
R7. Michael Williams / TE

We win the draft.

A third round pick does sound entertaining.

I would let Sanders walk...he drops to many balls and is to injury prone....i would love to see the steelers take Bell in the 1st; package the there 2nd & Sanders' 3rd to move up in the 2nd and take Elam, 3rd can be used on a WR then...Bell will be gone by the time we pick in the 2nd so either we move back in the 1st and get another 2nd or 3rd or we lose out on two of the best RB in the draft - Bell or Franklin

Take the extra 3rd rd pick. Draft the BPA in the 1st (Cooper, Vaccaro, Jones, Mingo, Patterson). Get Robert Woods in the second to replace sanders and do not second guess it.

This will be a tough season. Maximizing our offensive potential by keeping Ben clean, assisting him in the running game and giving him weapons to grow with is the best way to contend for a playoff spot right now and in the future. Ben may only have 3-4 seasons left at an elite level or at all.

We have a small window with Ben left. I wouldn't even be sad to see them take Geno Smith if he falls and store him away. But regardless the offense needs reloaded in the worst way. We need playmakers with potential to stick around. No more injury and character riddled types.
