    Re: Bryant McFadden traded back to Steelers!!

    I'm excited too, but let's temper it a bit: he definitely underwhelmed in AZ, to the point at least where they were willing to unload him for a 5th.

    But oh well, I like it!

    This is a good move. McFadden can play in our system. I feel better about the secondary compared to my feelings this morning. I was hoping for a young safety in this draft but apparently that won't happen. Maybe Lewis can be moved to safety.
    The Steelers’ went through seven consecutive drafts (2003-09) without taking an offensive lineman in the first two rounds, the longest such streak by any franchise this century.

    Shoot bring back Faneca as well...move him to center...cut hartwig. And McFadden didnt have the best year with the Cards but he always played well in our system. It was a great move.

    Very happy with this move too. Thought Gay would be a decent replacement when he left, but apparently not........

    Now pick up a running back somewhere in the draft and I'll be happy.

    Faneca is definitely going to Arizona with Grimm.

    It's $5 million this year, but there is no cap, so as long as the Rooneys are willing to pay that for this season, it doesn't hurt the team by taking cap dollars away from other needs. After this season, we can determine whether or not we want to re-sign him. If Gay, Lewis and Burnett progress this season behind Ike and BMac, then we could let McFadden go next off-season. If not, we could re-sign him. It buys us time to see how our two rookie corners from last year (and Gay) progress without having to rely on any of them for anything more than nickel and dime duty, except in case of injury.
