Supposedly Ladell Betts is being shopped around... I would rather see him then Duce, besides they save some cap room by getting rid of him.

Interesting about them offering the Falcons a 4th. With all the talk about Staley being shopped around and us trying to acquire Duckett it doesn't seem like their too confident in Duce.

I dont think they are... And offering a 4th proves it but i am not sure why we just didnt offer Morgan and a 4th to get him, i wonder if they will now keep staley or continue to go after someone else. I read where the Steelers are not going to use a short yardage back or goal line back specifically so Parker will be the main man.

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


he probably wont go anywhere, whens the last time the steelers made a blockbuster deal or anything close to it?

id like them to, but i doubt anything happens.

Trade? Most teams know that he will probably be cut, and will wait. His inability to stay healthy makes his worth, worthless!

I'm very skeptical of all of these stories. I'm not believing anything until I hear it directly from the Steelers, though I don't count it out considering the amount of depth at the RB position.

Some teams will mull over the possibility of picking up players before they are cut in order to insure that they can get them...after being cut its up to the player to accept the best offer or oppurtunity. A player may not want to go to a bad team and be a starter..or may not want to go to a good team and warm the pine.
If a team offers a draft pick or some sort of compensation before he leaves they can have more control of whether they get him or not.

well if the story just read that, Staley could be on tading blocks... then i would be skeptical as well. But it said that he has been dangled in trade offers recently which i tend to believe he probably has been. That means multipe teams have said the Steelers have approached them about it, not sure who the Steelers or what they are wanting for him, but i it sounds like on the surface that he will be cut. Maybe they are looking at Humes and him and figuring Humes is better at this point and will be using him more. Trying to get Staley on another tema so they dont have to cut him and at leastget something for him.

A Ferrari with an empty tank of gas may look good in the driveway but fatal if you need to go to the emergency room.

IMHO His career is over.

We have solid hungry young bucks with ears pinned back looking at the return man like a medium rare steak. That's who I want on the roster.

The Steelers would be miles ahead just releasing Staley... Its ashame too... he started off so strong for the Steelers a couple years ago and I really like what I saw, but he is No Longer that player.. I think that Haynes deserves more carries anyway.. and he is a better reciever than Parker or Staley..Besides.. what are you gonna get for Staley when there is news all around that we are just gonna release him anyway..
God Bless All
