    I like the signing, while he isn't the same Plax we signed as a rookie his experience has value and a redzone target we need.
    I thought they could of used him more at least in the redzone last season, maybe we will see him utilized more in that capacity as well as helping move the chains during drives.

    Draft Tyler Eifert in Round 1 and you have your red zone target and Heath's eventual replacement.
    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!

    2014 Draft

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB
    7a. Aaron Colvin, CB
    7b. Storm Johnson, RB

    I'm OK with this. If you noticed, he didn't have his football legs under him last season, as he missed a year and camp, etc. I believe this year's version of Plex will be a much more productive one. Plus, with Wallace gone, he will have more passes thrown his way. I am fine with this. If he still looks like he doesn't rediscover his football shape, then cut him in the preseason. I could just tell he wasn't there, physically last year. His legs appeared like jelly. Give him a full camp and preseason and he might regain his football shape. You can't just show up midseason and think you are in football shape, especially when you're in your mid 30s.
