Starks, Kemoeatu, Colon, McHugh, Frazier, Harrison, Bryant.

I'm actually surprised we were able to hang on to all of those. Credit to Colbert this off-season. Definitely keeping our own more so this year, and not clouding it with a bunch of castoffs from other teams.

Keyaron Fox should be next.

those first 3 bother me... starters on a BAD o-line... that's not necessarily a good thing...

meh...

He knows the defense by now I guess and he is a body. Hopefully he will help teach the young buck coming in.

But if we lost them, it would be Stapleton, Capizzi, and Hills. Which is worse.

Hey WE WON A SUPERBOWL WITH THIS GUY...........

As I dodge the tomatoes being thrown at me. He knows the defense, he's a vet, seems like a good locker room kind of guy (or he wouldn't be back). And whoever said that perhaps he can train the next young buck coming up was probably right on the money.

Now let's sign Fox & James Harrison

Actually, since Stapleton is already penciled in at RG, our o-line would look like:

Hills-Parquet-Hartwig-Stapleton-Capizzi

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Bryant sucks. He looked bad last year. I guess maybe a year in our system will help him out but I thought he looked old and bad last year. Maybe Tomlin isn't as high on CB Roy Lewis as I had thought. That sucks.

We'll see what happens in Latrobe. Lewis should show that he deserves a spot on the final roster moreso than Bryant.

bryant does suck but he might not even make the team. just like davis, they both have to earn a spot on the roster. i dont understand why not bodden. he doesnt cost a lot.
