Default Staley on trade blocks ......

NFL Network's Adam Shefter reports that Duce Staley has been dangled in trade offers recently.

According to Shefter, Staley could be released if they don't find any suitors. Maybe the positive things Cowher has said publicly has been to raise his stock. Verron Haynes looks like the backup to Willie Parker, and should be upgraded.




***** no info givin on to whome he is being dangled to ****

I wouldn't doubt it. At the game Saturday he looked so slow and rusty. I have been really amazed that Cowher has been saying he looks good....Might be a plan!

I was suprised as well reading that article about Cowher saying that because writers that have been to practices said that Staley didnt look so good as well. Plus , we all saw the scrimmages so i guess Cowher has been trying to put a good spin on it. I just wish they would have mentioned to whom Staley has been shopped to !!!

Duce being shopped?

Many happy returns for Staley and Eagles?

Adam Schefter

(Aug. 22, 2006) -- The last two weeks of the preseason are when games are played and, more importantly, rosters are refined.

There are always surprise cuts, unexpected trades and intriguing moves that allow teams to make their final transactions before the season kicks off.

This summer, one of the biggest could come out of Pittsburgh -- and wind up in Philadelphia.


In seven seasons with the Eagles, Duce Staley amassed 4,807 yards.
One NFL general manager said the Pittsburgh Steelers have been shopping running back Duce Staley, trying to see if any team would be willing to trade for him before the team would have to release him. It makes sense. Pittsburgh's backfield is chock full with Willie Parker entrenched as a starter, Verron Haynes as his backup, and running backs John Kuhn, Brandon Jones and Cedric Humes also vying for roster spots.

Pittsburgh's depth at the position makes it possible for it to deal Staley. Yet if Staley is sent packing from Pittsburgh either through a trade or a release, one possible landing spot would seem to be the Philadelphia Eagles who, to date, have not had any trade conversations with the Steelers.



Should Staley be released, and it is within the realm of possibility, the Eagles could be on the list of teams interested in his services.

In recent seasons, the Eagles have made a habit out of bringing back longtime contributors and fan favorites. They did it with defensive end Hugh Douglas and linebackers Jeremiah Trotter and Shawn Barber. Now they could wind up doing the same with Staley, who built his name and reputation in Philadelphia. The move would generate big cheers from Eagles fans and, even more significant, from its players.

The Eagles are in the market for a big back and, earlier this week, visited with free
agent Stephen Davis. No deal was reached there, but it doesn't mean the Eagles won't be looking for another bigger back that could help the team. The most logical fit would be Staley, who could wind up cut loose in Pittsburgh in the next two weeks.

Staley is worth very little at this point...a 6th rounder?

He isn't worth getting rid of, the Steelers have invested money in him , they might aswell keep him on the depth chart.

I agree with LITP. I don't think we could get much for Staley. He has been injuried ALOT and hasn't proven himself after injury.

With Duckett off the market....I agree...I would be very surprised if Duce gets dealt or dropped...

Even more interesting:
Adam Schefter reported on Total Access that the Steelers offered the Falcons a 4th round pick as late as Tuesday for Duckett.
