    Dan Connor Visisting Steelers

    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.

    Here We Go Steelers!

    Fits the mold. He was cut and won't impact comp picks. Will come cheap. Could be a signing talked about for years to come. One mans trash...

    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...

    What Siggy said. Foote may not leave Arizona without a contract.

    I was under the impression that comp picks may be impacted by any free agent signing...Dallas wouldn't be entitled to any comp picks in return because he was cut...

    I'm talking our comp picks. If we sign a FA that was "Cut" it doesn't impact our comp picks. If we sign an URFA, it is used in the formula against our losses. Signing a Breaston, Connor, Wells, etc. doesn't impact what we may receive if we lose Wallace, Mendy, Lewis, etc.
