There's another former 1st round LT on the market with zero interest at the moment.
With no interest, you'd have to assume he'd come cheap. Worth taking a flyer on a former 1st round LT that hasn't panned out?
Eben Britton, anyone?
Schiavone's Race Career:
And it's what I have been trying to tell you guys since we drafted Adams. He doesn't have it. And if you have him protecting Ben's blindside, you had better draft a QB to replace him. If you have him on his right, be prepared for years of poor pass protection, but at least Ben can see it coming. He lacks heart. He is sloppy and soft. I don't think Gilbert is much better.
Starks to save the day again ?
I'm shocked the Steelers even made a play for Jake Long. That would have been a great signing. I have to wonder what the "play" was? Were they even close to offering him the type of money that the Rams offered?
If so, how can anyone discount the remote possibility of a Revis / Ike Taylor trade?
It would have been a great signing. It's why I wouldn't be upset if the Steelers draft at LT in the first round this year. Let Gilbert beat out Adams for RT. Not sure why the Steelers seem to hate Starks. Starks is an above average LT.

This is how I figure #Steelers interest in Jake Long went:
Colbert: How about 2yr, 5M.
Noone else is signing him so it might just happen

They are delusional if they think they will get players to sign with that PAST factor being in play.

Is next year the year we can reunite the Pouncey brothers? I think I'd rather have that than the Long brothers.
