Would love to have a consolidated running list of our new FA signings and leavings. I know a lot will think this is camp scrap but you never know.

The experts missed on Arian Foster and we just signed the second coming of Drew Brees.

I like that the Steelers are not just sitting still. No complacency. Assertive moves, whether or not they pan out they won't hurt the team.

Troy Smith > Joe Flacco :lol: :lol: :lol:

The Steelers signed six players today to Reserve/Future contracts for the 2012 season.

I agree. Competition never hurts and Silverback bounced around from PS to PS before sticking and sticking well.
