    It's a joke, they walk around with chump change and expect to buy a Benz.
    I've been saying this forever. I am sure they were interested in Jake Long. "Hey Jake, we can offer you league minimum." And then it gets "leaked" that they were interested and fans are supposed to be tricked into thinking they are serious about adding quality players in FA. And in reality, they sign players like "Waste of Spaeth."

    For those who think the front office is so much super smarter than all the fans, they are not. They arrogantly act like they are, but look what they have done in the last five years: jack sh-t. What a joke.

    This may be the most assinine post I've ever read on this forum as of late.

    the longer you wait, the cheaper they come. That's how the #Steelers view free agency.

    I guess it doesn't hurt to inquire, but common sense tells me players like long and Dumervil would want more than the Steelers can afford. They talked to Butler and he isn't even a high profile player, again they couldn't afford to sign him and he left town.
    I could see if they bring in players they know they could fit under the cap, otherwise it's a waste of time and resources to think a Long or Dumervil would actually sign for less knowing they could get more elsewhere.

    You guys can't have it both ways. You can't use Super Bowls to "judge" the front office while at the same time ignore the disturbing trend of bad drafts.

    Because now, as we all see, a lot of the ring bearers are leaving, and there's no one to replace them because of said drafts.

    With the Steelers looking into to free agency and being so up against the cap, I don't see why they even mess around with it. They probably stood a better chance signing their own players. Then again, it's probably a head game for all that's involved. I'm tired of all the old guys they have either signed, hadn't let go or allowed these players to get their big dollars when they were older and not producing. Then again, what the heck do I know about the workings of an NFL team?
