Again Chadman please explain to me why he would want to sign with the Steelers? He has stated he wants to be the #1,2,3 RB LOL. He said he is a great goal line back, great 3rd down back. Also that might be true. But he will be worn out or broken by the 10th game.:D Lets not run the wheels off like Parker please.:idea:
I have a ton of respect for Steven Jackson but I'd prefer they try to snag Chris Ivory from New Orleans.
Given the Steelers financial position, if it were up to Chadman, and we were signing a RB, the 2 names he'd look at are Kevin Smith from the Lions & Justin Forsett from the Texans. Both would come at budget prices, both could contribute to the RB rotation the Steelers currently employ.
Both could be used on 3rd down.
UPDATE: Yes, they did tender him w/ a 2nd rounder. Wow, the saints are LOADED at RB.
Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, Chris Ivory
Their 4th best RB is better than our #1. Wow, that's pathetic.
I liked him too, just not that much.
