    They covet Mike Wallace, Keenan Lewis and even that old bum of an OLB James Harrison, but coveting and signing are two vastly different things in 2013. I guess we're officially 2 hours away from free agency.

    Potatoes. Chadman hears Jackson is a big fan of potatoes. He's got Irish in him, 15 generations back.

    Again Chadman please explain to me why he would want to sign with the Steelers? He has stated he wants to be the #1,2,3 RB LOL. He said he is a great goal line back, great 3rd down back. Also that might be true. But he will be worn out or broken by the 10th game. Lets not run the wheels off like Parker please.

    Seriously though, I'd rather see them take a run at Shonn Greene. That kid's a violent runner. And he and the Jets had such a down year, I bet he'd be more affordable. And he has far less mileage.

    Not suggesting it's an idea, before Chadman gets accused of it, but does anyone else think Parker is reluctantly retired?

    I have a ton of respect for Steven Jackson but I'd prefer they try to snag Chris Ivory from New Orleans.

    Hey.... just reporting what Chadman sees... personally, unless there is some hidden finances somewhere, Chadman reckons it's extremely unlikely to happen.

    didn't the saints put a 2nd round tender on ivory?

    no way in hell I would give up a 2nd for him.

    Given the Steelers financial position, if it were up to Chadman, and we were signing a RB, the 2 names he'd look at are Kevin Smith from the Lions & Justin Forsett from the Texans. Both would come at budget prices, both could contribute to the RB rotation the Steelers currently employ.

    Both could be used on 3rd down.

    I didn't know that. If that was the tender then I'd have to pass as well.

    UPDATE: Yes, they did tender him w/ a 2nd rounder. Wow, the saints are LOADED at RB.

    Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, Chris Ivory

    Their 4th best RB is better than our #1. Wow, that's pathetic.

    they did.

    I liked him too, just not that much.
