    Steelers, Farrior negotiating

    REPORT: STEELERS, FARRIOR CLOSE TO NEW DEAL
    Posted by Mike Florio on August 20, 2008, 11:56 p.m. EDT
    Our friends at KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh (actually, we donít really know them, but they seem nice) report that the Steelers and linebacker James Farrior are close to working out a contract extension.

    Farrior is entering the last year of his current deal. Heís due to earn a base salary of $3.24 million in 2008.

    The 1997 first-rounder from Virginia spent five seasons with the Jets before joining the Steelers in 2002. He has started all but four regular-season games in his six years with the Steelers.

    Per the report, the deal could come as soon as tomorrow, and likely will be hammered out before Saturdayís game against the Vikings.

    The Steelers typically donít negotiate contracts with current players once the regular season opens.

    I really like Farrior but I have a feeling it would delay Davis getting onto the field.

    Well seeing as one is an outside LB pass rush specialist & the other is a tackling machine ILB...Chadman thinks you might be mistaken...

    The Chadman would have missed my take on the situation.

    I personally think when Farrior is done...Harrison shifts inside and Davis takes the OLB position. Farrior staying might mean we can't find a position for Davis.

    Ahh...it appears you might be right- Chadman has missed your take on the situation...1000 apologies, all involving the sacrifice of a small goat & the delivery of 3 stink bombs are on their way to you...

    Re: Steelers, Farrior negotiating

    this is great news!! farrior is so important to the defense and it would be hard to replace him. i havent seen bruce davis do anything at all so far in preseason so i have no confidence in him. i've always thought farrior was a little under rated and i agree with the philosophy of not re-signing old players, but farrior is an exception. his play hasnt declined all that much at all

    Re: Steelers, Farrior negotiating

    This is great news. Farrior is probably the best free agency signing by the Steelers ever. Was Kevin Greene a FA?

    This works for the team whether we stay 3-4 or go 4-3. In the 4-3:

    DL: Woodley-Smith-someone not named Casey-Davis
    LB: Timmons-Farrior-Harrison
    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!

    I hear ya...I really do. *key the music from boys 2 men* It's so hard to say goodbye...especially to Farrior. The guy is sooo underrated. With that said, he is 33 y/o. His time as a Steeler is winding down. Unless he is the Warren Moon of LBrs we will need to replace him. And no we haven't seen alot of Davis...and yes he is unproven. But, he is the Steelers best move towards a youth movement.
