    Wesleye Saunders...

    ...coming in for a tryout. The spot was vacated by UDFA Jay Rome being waived.
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.

    I don't mind bringing back guys who were good for us in the past (Will Gay, Larry Foote, Willie Williams, Bryant McFadden, etc.), but I don't see the point in bringing back someone who wasn't any good for us in the first place, and still no good when he went elsewhere, plus also has a PED suspension under his belt. Big pass here.

    Because this is a Steeler message board that is set up for us to give our opinions about Steeler related topics?

    Well, let's look at who is on the roster right now:

    The presumptive 1 and 2 TEs are Green and Spaeth...

    After them, we have:
    Jesse James - 8 career games (2 starts) 8 rec. 56 yards 1 TD
    David Johnson - 82 career games (32 starts) 24 rec. 224 yards 1 TD
    Xavier Grimble - no career games
    Paul Lang - no career games

    Then, for Saunders: 34 career games (11 starts) 10 rec. 90 yards 1 TD

    Who would have the best chance to make the roster?

    My thoughts as well. The Steelers could cut him and save almost $1 million against the cap with only $100K dead money...

    As much as Green is getting heavy hype, I see JJ breaking out just as big.

    Green never had a season where he hit 20 catches until last year. These two will be platooning the position. It's gonna take breakout years by both of these two to cover what Heath contributed.


    I see David Johnson as a game day inactive all season barring injury to one of these two.


    The real question is, who is on the PS incase $h!+ really hits the fan at the TE position...
