Fair market value up front is more than they can afford...That is for sure.
If he signs an offer sheet and the Steelers don't match...Bring in Heyward Bey and see what he will sign for.
If this happens I would think you would agree they need to go with the more polished and NFL ready Keenan Allen over Cordarelle Patterson?
This could actually be a good thing for the Steelers. It just may allow them to also get LeVeon Bell.
