    Re: Colon's Agent Wanting A Trade Offer

    I think the Steelers will match any offer rather than take a draft pick, but they wanted to try and secure Willie's services for one year on the cheap. It may not work, only time will tell.

    The Steelers really don't have anyone waiting in the wings. I guess Essex and Foster by default, unless, Hills has shown more than the Steelers have let on and kept him hidden on the practice squad to get reps. I doubt it, but it is a possibility.

    I believe it is the Steelers intent to match any sane offer Colon receives.

    If another team would like to do the negotiating for the Steelers and sign Colon to a long-term contract that the Steelers can match then that would be wonderful.

    If Colon receives a contract offer that is ridiculous (Colon is not a LT, he is only a RT and RTs usually don't get ridiculous offers) and we choose not to match, a 1st round draft choice sounds like fair compensation to me.

    As for Hills, I have yet to see one single thing from him that leads me to think he can help us. I hope I'm wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the Steelers draft an OT to give Hills some competition for the back-up OT position.

    If we got another #1, maybe we could seriously trade up to snag Eric Berry.

    If we got another #1, I would love to take 2 of the following 3 players:

    Sean Weatherspoon, Earl Thomas, Jared Odrick

    I'd give up Willie in a second to get two of those three!

    So what you are saying is you would give up our Super Bowl winning RT for one of those three prospects because we already get one of them without giving up Willie. So who do we have thats waiting to take over at RT?

    I think I would refer to Willie as a RT that won a Super Bowl, not a Super Bowl winning RT.

    RTs are a lot easier to find than LTs, remember that we drafted Willie Colon in the 4th round. I would gladly take a first round draft choice for Colon and then look to draft an OT to replace Colon in Rounds 2 or 3.

    In the interim let Essex, Hills and Foster battle it out for the RT spot and/or sign a stop-gap RT in free agency.
