    Steelers Host FA Leonard Pope, TE

    As a blocking TE and a big body in the red zone, Pope would be a nice addition. I didn't realize his history with Haley until I read the link from BTSC. I would like to see this happen, provided, of course, that his asking price is reasonable.

    I believe our third-person correspondent from the Planet Steelers Office (Down Under Campus) predicted this one weeks ago.


    Difference maker in the middle needed to replace Shazier.

    Offer picks 1.28 & 3.92 plus WR Martavis Bryant to ARZ for pick 1.15. They only have 5 draft picks now, plus their WR's are undersized (John Brown & J.J. Nelson both 5'10") or old (Larry Fitzgerald 35 y.o.).

    Gets us ahead of BAL at 1.16, who's looking to replace the retired ILB Zach Orr.

    1.15 Georgia ILB Roquan Smith 6'0" 225
    2.60 Stanford FS Justin Reid 6'1" 204

    He would be a great add. Johnson is essentially worthless whether playing TE or his quasi-FB position. Saunders still has potential and could learn behind Pope and Miller. I think his issues were with failing to report a ADD drug not Holmes-like recreational drugs.

    I think Saunders has the potential to be great but if Haley tries to NOT use his weapons like Arians did it really doesn't matter who we have for a tight end.
