    Tweet from Wexell, Scout Insider for Steelers

    jimwexell Wouldn't be surprised if Ben traded after talking to source. Could be KC. #Steelers' brass absolutely adores Suh, so that'd put em in range.

    How in the hell would trading up to #5 put them in range for Suh?

    It wouldn't.

    Here's a post on a subscribers-only forum from Wexell as well....

    The Deuce didn't need input. There's a lot of crap flying around about Ben, locker room stuff too. Rooneys are furious. I talked to a guy with another team who thinks Goodell did Tomlin a favor by giving him a voice now over Ben. Tomlin will be in charge of the team for the first time and it may actually help. But I'm hearing Rooneys definitely want him gone.

    Don't know who the 'Deuce' is, he's referring too....

    I know nothing about draft points, but what's the difference between the 5th and 2nd slots?? Could it be our 18th, the 5th, and a couple other rounds to trade with Detroit?

    Also, if it's KC, didn't they give Matt Cassell a big contract last year?? It makes no sensse, but wanted to report anyway

    Jesus, I was going to say something like trading Ben would ruin my off-season/season but then pulled back and tried to actually evaluate the effects of that move. I'd be beside myself and probably just sit and stare at the TV in disbelief for what would seem like forever. It BETTER NOT happen and if for some terrible reason it does it better be for more than just KC's first round draft choice.

    Although if the Rooney's absolutely want him gone I'm at a loss because I've always felt they did what was best for the team. I just can't imagine a Steeler team without Big Ben behind center.

    right now we have a ton of disinformation and posturing going on.

    Teams that should be, and likely are, interested are giving all kinds of smokescreens through the media.

    I mean, come on, Buffalo is not interested?!?? whatever.

    That team has little to no relevance anymore- Ben would dramatically improve them, and put butts in the seats.

    St. Louis??? Are you kidding me? Same thing as Buf.

    ....


    I have no idea if Ben will be traded or not, at this point, but we know there are plenty of teams that would benefit from having him.

    The question, of course, is what are they willing to give up?
