    What a concept. Trading a player and getting something back versus just cutting.
    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!

    To be fair, a 6th round pick is virtually nothing.

    It's potentially Antonio Brown!

    So should we trade down out of the first to stockpile 6th rounders? It is also potentially Tom Brady, but I would not want to stake a career on trading for 6th rounders.

    FWIW the Ravens got less for Boldin than the Steelers got for Santonio.

    Yes, that is the EXCEPTION to the RULE. How many 6th round picks ever work out for Pgh? Barely any.

    I'll take a chance on an extra six round pick versus the big nothing we just got for Harrison. I'll guarantee you that there is a 100% chance that "nothing" never plays a game in the NFL.

    I still have expectations he returns

    IDK, while I hope you're right, too many teams have a need for a 3/4 OLB. Especially one that comes from a winning program and plays with a chip on his shoulder. I've heard interest linked to Cleveland and New Orleans primarily but also Philly and Baltimore.
