Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!
I was under the impression that the Steelers don't negotiate during the season...so I wonder what this is really all about...
I wouldn't be opposed to signing a short contract on the cheap....Its good to have depth at RB.
Otherwise let him walk...
There's no talk of actual contract negotiations taking place- just a committment to have contract negotiations.
Schiavone's Race Career:
I have zero issue with Mendenhall being resigned. He's not going to be expensive, has the physical intangibles and if he's used properly could be a really good HB for the Steelers for another 3 to 4 years depending on the deal. Get a full back out in front and let the guy build up some rhythm and he's the tailback we need. I'm of the opinion that it's possible he was brought back too soon or expected to carry the load too soon. He came back and ran REALLY well, then had a stinker followed by putting the ball on the ground. Tomlin threw him immediately in the dog house which is fine but I feel like he's been in extended stay when it should have been a night at holiday inn express. I'd much rather sign him than go to the draft. Mendenhall, Dwyer and Redman looks a-okay to me. Plus Rainey for the speed infusion but I'd prefer to see him start lining up as a receiver more or get motioned out.
