    As much as I'd love to boycott Rosenhaus clients after what he orchestrated with AB, I understand that it's not entirely realistic. But it would give...

    This is similar to the way the Steelers have structured deals for Ladarius Green, Mike Mitchell and Morgan Burnett. The first year cap hit is a bit...

    These deals have always driven me nuts with the Steelers. If you sign him to a qualifying veteran minimum deal, with the reduced cap hit, I have no...

    Unfortunately, I saw last night that he signed Devin Bush. I'd take him off the draft board. Given the role that Rosenhaus undoubtedly played in...

    That's a valid criticism and I completely agree. I just don't think Ben and AB ironing things out would have made a difference. I think he wanted...

    Is the Tate visit actually confirmed? I saw that some blog posted it and a bunch of people ran with that. But I haven't seen it reported elsewhere.

    Given that Dupree has been supporting AB on social media, I'd pull the plug on him, too. I understood the Steelers choice to overpay him rather than...

    This has Rosenhaus all over it. Same thing he orchestrated with TO. I hope the Steelers never do business with Rosenhaus or any of his clients again.

    If Porter gets the blame for Dupree, does he also get credit for Watt's development? Dupree is what he is.

    Correct. The Steelers gave him an original round tender and matched the Pats* offer, which I believe was a one year deal but at a higher salary.
