    That gives the team 4 picks in the first 100. I don't know if I just let him walk and start to rebuild this aging team the way it's always been done, through the draft. Manny is probably not worth the money New England shelled out to hurt us.

    Looks like receiver just jumped up considerably on the list of need... along with just about every other position. Need to have a jam up draft this year or we're going to be mediocre for several years to come...especially if the injuries happen in mass numbers like they have the last few years.

    Patriots sign Emmanuel Sanders to offer sheet

    The Patriots are making a move for wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

    Sanders, a restricted free agent from the Steelers, has signed an offer sheet with the Patriots, according to multiple reports.

    That means the Steelers will have five days to either match the Patriots’ offer and keep Sanders, or decline to match it and let Sanders become a Patriot. If the Steelers don’t match, they get the Patriots’ third-round draft pick, No. 91 overall.

    The offer is reportedly a one-year contract. The Patriots have more cap space than the Steelers this season, so it wouldn’t be hard for New England to offer Sanders a higher salary in 2013 than the Steelers can afford to pay. But if the Patriots send the Steelers their third-round draft pick they’ll be almost out of ammunition in the draft: They’ve already traded away their fourth-round pick for
    Aqib Talib, their fifth-round pick for Albert Haynesworth and their sixth-round pick for Chad Ochocinco.

    Sanders visited the Patriots a month ago, and the possibility that he could land in New England has been much-discussed since then. If the Steelers don’t match, then the Patriots have taken a big step toward filling the gaps in their receiving corps, and the Steelers — who have already lost
    Mike Wallace in free agency — will be down two of their top three wide receivers.

    We will receive the 91st pick overall and 1.3 million in cap space if we let him walk. We could sign Steve Breaston for the vet min by now I am sure and that would fill the spot. Take Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey and we are set. No worries

    Schefter is saying money won't be the issue..It will be about is he worth a 3rd pick and what the Steelers "Long term" plans are with him. It is tough to call. Deep WR class. Hate to see him go but I guess we will see what the Steelers crystal ball was telling them.

    Looking at the visitors so far I wonder if the Steelers planned on this happening. The majority of their visitors so far have been 2-3 projected round picks. Take into consideration that only 2 1st rounders have visted so far and maybe the Steelers plan on having 2 seconds and 3 thirds this year? Let Sanders walk and trade back?


    With Sanders

    Draft 2.2
    1. Xavier Rhodes, CB, FSU
    2. Eric Reid, S, LSU
    3. Stedman Bailey, WR, WVU
    4. Le’Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State
    5. Landry Jones, QB, OU
    6a. Cornelius Washington, OLB, Georgia
    6b. Duke Williams, SS, Nevada
    7. Vince Williams, ILB, FSU

    Without Sander.

    Draft 2.3
    1. Tavon Austin, WR, WVU
    2. Eric Reid, S, LSU
    3. Stedman Bailey, WR, WVU
    3b.Malliciah Goodman, OLB, Clemson
    4. Le’Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State
    5. Landry Jones, QB, OU
    6a. Cornelius Washington, OLB, Georgia
    6b. Duke Williams, SS, Nevada
    7. Vince Williams, ILB, FSU

    I like Sanders but don't know that he's worth $4M. We still have AB, Plax and I believe Cotch, right ? As unimpressive as that is, it's still on par with or better than what we won the Super Bowl with in 2005.

    Bring in some new talent from the draft and see where it goes.

    The Steelers this season will hardly resemble the one from last season.

    Let him go, take the 3rd. Trade pick 17 to Miami for their two second rounders.
