    Who's the ONE ???

    The Steelers are doing what they do. Signing their own.

    Every year they sign ONE Free Agent from another team that has Starter Potential or Significant Impact.
    Last year it was DeAngelo Williams
    The year prior it was Mike Mitchell
    The year before that it was Arthur Moats

    So who's the ONE this year???

    With all the WEDDLE fantasy out there I knew there had to be someone off the radar.
    Interesting. Certainly scary to think about heading into next season with only 2 TE's with any experience and a potential Rookie.

    Green's rare skill set combines flash and fundamentals. On one hand, he's a capable blocker. His lanky 6-foot-6, 237-pound frame is closer to Calvin Johnson's than Gates', yet Green holds his own in the running game.

    Some other interesting tidbits taken from that article youlinked (which was written two offseasons ago):

    Green is a stretch four, defying easy categorization. He's aswing player that can perform traditional tight end functions (blocking) whilestretching the field with vertical routes. Green is made for a fast-breakoffense.

    The faster pace should benefit Green, who is a matchupnightmare for defenses that can't substitute.

    When the Chargers let Green run loose, he goes deep. He madenine plays over 20 yards, and most of those were bombs, not runs after thecatch.

    So many of Green's catches came in tight spots, leaping forthe ball over defenders. He taps his feet on the sideline and adjusts forpasses thrown behind him. He's too fast for linebackers and too physical formost cornerbacks, beating players like Brent Grimes and Chris Harris inone-on-one situations.

    Green was stuck on special teams, where he ranked in theNFL's top 30 in tackles.

    He has 4.5 40 speed, so it was surprising to see Green oftenstay in to block so often when Gates went out for routes. Almost all of Green'scatches came after starting the play as an in-line blocker.

    Per play, Green is already one of the best players at hisposition in the league. Among all receivers with at least 15 grabs last year,Green led the league in yards per catch. PFF has a great efficiency metriccalled yards per route run; only Rob Gronkowski was more explosive among tight endswith at least 100 snaps.

    Beyond the numbers, expect Green to jump off your screen.There aren't many humans on the planet with his size and movement skills. Asthe NFL starts to look more like the CFL, Green is a prime example of where thegame is headed.



    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.
