    Not outrageous. Avoid preseason for him to save his legs, then bring him back if in a lurch. He'll be desperate to play at that point and would run from Ga to Pa to get in a game.

    cotchery also had a great catch for a TD in denver.

    I would love to have him back.

    Wallace is here for NOW. Cotchery hasn't left YET.


    Then we make moves as we lose Cotch or Wallace. We can't really replace them til they leave. If we sign a solid no.4 vet, then Cotch leaves for sure. No reason to preempt that move.
    So we sit, prepare for a mid- to late round pick. And that's that.
    Wallace is still on this team. Cotchery is not. Once the free agent signing period began he is as much a Lion or a Dolphin as he is a Steeler (that is to say he has no team at all).
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

But, if we sign Wallace to a long term contract, that might not even happen. This team will be very young at WR.
    There are some pretty good small school guys with some good size that should be available in the 7th or as FA. I also wouldnt mind trying for Chris Owusu with a 6th or 7th despite his concussion issues

    You won't even have to go small school. There are so many big receivers that there will be some big school productive guys available in the 6th or 7th.

    Derrick Williams is possibly the 'wild card'- his skill set is pretty much exactly what the Steelers would be looking for in a slot/possession type WR. If he's switched on, he could be the guy. Plus- he doubles as a punt returner.

    Then you could put Wes Lyons in as the 5th WR to add some height.

    All of this at Vet minimum too.

    I'd like to see a 3rd, 4th, or 5th round pick on guys like Marvin McNutt, Juron Criner, DeVier Posey, or an A.J. Jenkins.

    Cotchery isn't a game breaker, but he is a solid veteran who knows how to get open. I also think there is a lot to be said for having a veteran presence on the roster.
    Welkers drop was a tough catch and if you watch the replay it was a poorly thrown ball.

    I know Crotchery is a chain mover but he rarely moved the chains if I remember correctly.
