    Dan Connor Visisting Steelers

    [URL="http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/03/12/dan-connor-visiting-the-steelers/"]Dan Connor visiting the Steelers[/URL]

    APOn Monday, the Cowboys dumped veteran linebacker [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4693/dan-connor"]Dan Connor[/URL].
    On Tuesday, Connor has plans to head back to his home state. (OK, Commonwealth.)
    Connor will visit the Steelers, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com.
    The 3-4 inside linebacker fits the Steelers’ typical free-agency profile. That is, guys who can be gotten cheaply.
    And Connor could end up being a contributor, especially if [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4195/lawrence-timmons"]Lawrence Timmons[/URL] slides outside to fill the void created by the departure of [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/665/james-harrison"]James Harrison[/URL].
    Actually, that could be the best plan for Pittsburgh. With Timmons already under contract for the long haul and with pass rushers more pricey than inside linebackers, the Steelers would be wise to at least consider using Timmons on the outside and acquiring more help for the inside.

    as soon as i saw this cut, i thought, "he'll be a Steeler this fall" cuz he does fit the mold. Honestly, I hope it means bye bye Foote...

    REALLY like it if he signs...

    Speaking of comp picks, the Steelers may receive one for Willie Gay last year...
