    If Bud leaves, there is a gaping hole at OLB, and that position instantly becomes the Steelers biggest need. If he stays, I think the Steelers should probably spend both of their 2nd day picks on...

    Completely agree. I'd double his suspension for trying to play the race card to get out of it.

    No. Josina Anderson recklessly speculated about it and then deleted her tweets. Garrett never said anything about it until the hearing.

    I think we can easily say that Conner is injury prone. Staying healthy is a skill. His running style tends to lead to injuries.

    I'd put running back up there with WR among the team needs next...

    Holton made a few plays in the preseason, but I think he made the team because of his work on special teams. He's a decent gunner. I thought he'd be a younger, cheaper DHB. Not that DHB offered much...

    Somebody posted a compilation of all the 3rd and 1 and 4th and 1 failures, and a common theme is that there was no fullback in any of them. The Steelers seem to love using Banner (which makes sense)...

    First, I'm glad he's back. I don't expect him to be another James Harrison, or anything close, but he's young and he showed potential.

    What's somewhat interesting to me is the Steelers adding...

    If not a health issue outright, I'd assume that he must have lost enough speed and/or quickness to the point where he is no longer effective. He's been worked out by other teams, and the Steelers are...

    I read the predraft scouting reports on Cain and Whyte. Both would have been intriguing offseason signings. Cain has decent size and good speed. He's was also still on the practice squad of a Colts...

    Between Dobbs and Rudolph, I think Rudolph has a chance to be a NFL starting QB. Dobbs was too inaccurate on short throws. He could drive the ball downfield but not hit the RB in the flat.

    I agree...

    Before Tuitt was injured, that was definitely right. He was playing 50% or less. I haven't seen a snap count, but it seemed like Hargrave and Heyward were getting the bulk of the snaps against the...

    So far, life after Ben feels kind of like the 90s Steelers, but with a weaker running game. A team built on defense. I think most of the 90s Steelers teams had a better offense than what we've seen...

    I'll fully admit, I hated the decision before the ball was snapped, but I'm obviously glad it worked out!

    I get the rationale - the defense was gassed - but I had no faith in the offense there at...

    I'd like to bring back both, but I suspect it will be very hard to do so. If the defense keeps playing as well as it is, their value will likely be further inflated in the market. If I had to pick...

    Well said and I agree completely. I liked the signing at the time, too. Given the comp pick being in play, the Steelers had no choice but to release him.

    [QUOTE=steelerkeylargo;779337]

    That's the cap hit. About $3 million is prorated signing bonuses, and another $800k is Burns' roster bonus. So there is little cap savings from moving them. Sanders...

    He's been exceptional. Four fumble recoveries, 2 INTs and a TD in just 6 games is pretty impressive. I loved the move to go get him and it is already paying dividends. Watt, Bush and Fitzpatrick can...
