    Didn't someone on the board post something a little while back about Gilbert's injury possibly being worse than most of us thought (like potentially career-threatening type of serious)? If that's the case, then we might go for a tackle (like say Fisher in round 1 or Aboushi in round 2) to pair with Adams as our bookends for the future (if Gilbert is may not be in the future plans as a result of this injury). That and re-signing Foster might be the way to go.

I'd still like to see Legs at C (plus draft a C in a later round like 3 or 4) and move Pouncey to LG. I thought he did a great job in there LG this year.
    By this logic we have Worilds to replace Harrison and Brown and Allen to replace Ike, Heyward to replace Keisel....should cut them to get under the cap.

    Well for those of you who want younger, hungrier guys getting playing time, here you go!

    Actually, I think this is the best (and most cost-effective) lineup...we just need the right OL coach...

    You think that isn't a possibility?

    I think it's a risk to not bring back Starks, but also not bringing back Foster, for depth at least, seems loco.

    It will be a tough choice, I would bring back Starks as long as he didnt ask for an unreasonable amount of money

    Not really. Steelers go cheap on offense then blame the offense for losses. Gotta have that top D to play renegade for though.

    bringing back neither of your usual starting OGs from the previous season usually indicates a problem of some kind...

    If Ed is right, they better draft an OL in the first round.
