    Dan Conner

    He signed today for 715,000 with giants. I know wwe are tight on money. But probably would have been okay with him at that price compared to Foote. I know Foote deal is not to bad. But if we need to sign some other guys or have flexibility think Conner and Foote are a push.

    We needed Matt Spaeth for some reason.

    Initially I raised my brow at the Spaeth signing, but then read from a couple different sources he was the #1 TE in the NFL at pass blocking.

    For him (Conner) signing that cheap my guess is he was simply brought in for leverage against Foote. Wonder if bringing Vic Butler in was intended to try and have Harrison return on the cheap. Pretty sure Butler remains unsigned.

    But Foote got $2.5 million and Connor got $715K, so what exactly did the Steelers GAIN by pursuing Connor?

    Maybe they knew Foote wanted to stay here, but he was holding Arizona over their heads so they showed him they would entertain moving on from him. Who knows.

    Good info. I'm guessing the Steelers are waiting to see if his price will drop?

    The answer with Connor is clear. He'd have to wait a year or two before he would be deemed knowledgeable enough to play in the defense so they did what they always do--default to the player who "knows" the defense whether he has less talent or not.
    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!
