    Who's going to take over for him next season?
    Harrison.

    D will look like this

    Davis...Harrison....Timmons....Woodley

    Sprinkle in a rookie first round ILB.
    Yeah Harrison's a good choice. We know he's good at beatin' on them mouthy hoes!

    Farrior has been a terrific Steeler. i'm a fan of James Farrior. Hope he gets to stick around.

    Kendrell Bell was the last rookie to step in and contribute significantly no?

    I'll second that opinion - Go Cavs!
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    How many millions are enough? Wow--only making $4M on a team and a city that sees you as a hero. I wish we all had those tough decisions.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Wow can't believe I forgot about K Bell and his rookie year, I guess all the frustration with him after that year made me blind to it! What a disappointment that turned out to be!

    Davis is a project, I don't foresee him making the starting lineup next year. And Timmons still needs to beat out Foote for playing time this year.

    While I would like to see them sign James, I don't see it happening. Although I don't see a proven replacement on the roster currently at this time either. So I honestly think the play of Timmons this year, will in effect decide what is done with Farrior.
    He who forgets, will be destined to remember.

    Love Farrior. Sign him for less (which it sounds like he is angling for) and be done with it. He understands that his role is depth to the new guys.

    Sign him so I can continue to proudly wear his jersey!

    I agree. A Woodley, Timmons, Farrior, Harrison defense with Davis as a swing linebacker and Foote to substitute inside is much stronger than a Woodley, Foote (or Harrison), Timmons, & Davis linebacking core in my opinion.

    I would love to extend Farrior.
