    You are right that 3-4 vs 4-3 are such different positions. If I had to do mix, I would probably go with:

    OLB: Watt and Harrison
    ILB: Ham and Lambert

    I know Ham played outside, but he'd...

    I agree.

    LVE and Rashaan Evans also did not have their 5th year options picked up. Both are good players, but maybe not worth the full value of the option.

    They'll have guys to re-sign, but the contracts are almost always backloaded. And that makes sense because unused space rolls over. So even signing those guys at that average will not cost that much....

    I'm surprised by the decision on Edmunds. The 5th year option of $6.7 is a pretty modest price tag. It's more than he is worth now, but not drastically. If he takes another step forward, it would...

    I agree with you and T.O. on this one. When factoring in draft position, the Steelers typically do a good job. The Colbert/Cowher combo was better than the Colbert/Tomlin combo - Colbert/Cowher never...

    $18.8 million for Darnold is not unreasonable for 2022. Teddy Bridgewater is getting $18 in cash this year with a higher cap hit. That's about what you pay for a starting QB.

    I'm not really sold...

    Sorry, I'm not buying this. If the plan was to play Sutton on the outside, they could have cut Nelson before free agency started and signed Hilton. For the cash the Bengals gave Hilton, it could have...

    I would probably lose my mind, yes. I like the idea of bringing Conner back on a cheap deal. He has talent, when healthy. But I want to see the Steelers add a premium running back in the draft. Not...

    None of the free agent running backs have really cashed in. I wonder if Duke Johnson would sign a veteran salary benefit contract (where he has a discounted cap charge). I can't imagine the Steelers...

    I don't think Nelson and JuJu were related at all. The Steelers needed cap space to sign their picks and to have some room to operate during the season. Nelson was the next logical guy for cap...

    This could make sense for both parties. Especially if you do a deal with voidable years to spread out the cap hit. Also, if you can get past this year, the Steelers will have a ton of cap space next...

    Yeah, I get how the defense works. Alualu was the starting NT. But the Steelers play more nickel than base, and Alualu functioned as the key backup to those 2 guys in the nickel.

    I keep reading that AV will command a salary in the $12 million range. If that is the case, I'd rather make a play for Juju.

    I agree with that plan, particularly the free agents. I would add a center, resign Wormley and Davis (hopefully both on vet minimum deals), Dangerfield, and also look to add a NT. There are plenty of...

    The deal has a cap hit of $2.75M in the first year and $6.25M in year two. Very similar to Banner. With the amount of nickel the Steelers play, he's essentially a starter, making it a good value for...

    There are a ton of free agent options if you are looking for a run stuffing NT. Let the market settle down for a few days, and then when everybody is strapped for cash, find somebody that you like.
