Thread: Hartwig can Seek Trade; Urbik Reportedly Cut

    Hartwig can Seek Trade; Urbik Reportedly Cut

    Per Steelersdepot.

    Not surprised that Hartwig was given permission to seek a trade. I doubt he'll find any takers, but if we can get even a conditional late round pick for him, it is better than nothing.

    I thought Urbik might have had a shot; he reportedly improved as preseason progressed. I would imagine that he would be a practice squad candidate.

    This is good news, for me anyhow. Both of these two will have to be cut in order to keep the guys I really want to keep.

    if we can trade hartwig for a 6th or 7th round pick the steelers should jump on it.

    I doubt Steelers get anything. Once it gets to this point and his contract number teams know he will be released and clear waivers.
    Retain Worilds or Sign Brandon Graham OLB
    Sign FA RB (???)

    Draft:
    1st Waynes CB/ Collins CB / Peters CB
    2nd Eli Harold OLB
    3rd Jesse James TE
    4th Eric Rowe DB
    5th Karlos Williams RB
    6A Xavier Williams NT
    6B Ray Drew DE
    7th Max Garcia OL

    I've seen this suggested a few times here with a few different players... but it is VERY rare a team will give up any pick to pick up a player at this time of year. First everyone is having a tough time trimming their own rosters. Secondly if a team is trying to trade a player, and can not... 9 times out of 10 they end up releasing them. So even if you are interested in a player, chances are VERY high you can wait a couple of days and sign him without giving up a pick.

    *** EDIT... ok after doing some REAL quick research I guess it's not EXTREMELY rare as I made it sound, but still it's way closer to a long shot than the "norm".

    The Bills have a surplus of corners and an offensive line far worse than ours... Perhaps that could be a match for a player-for-player swap.

    No surprises here really. With Hills playing better and what seems to be a glut of interior offensive linemen these guys must be the odd men out.

    Re: Hartwig can Seek Trade; Urbik Reportedly Cut

    I've been intrigued by Urbik since we drafted him, but I've not heard anyone state anything about him being good or near a pro bowler.
    I expected a 4 yr starter from Wisconsin to make a smoother transition. But it doesn't look like it will happen. But I think most people talking up Urbik really only want to see if he's a bit of a late bloomer and might improve going forward. Noone is talking him up past that.
