forget the money.
what has sanders done to earn an extension?
I'm not seeing this as a big loss if it goes down.
Me not-knowing the cap situation next year, I'd say that we should let him go and take the salary-cap jail that we've imposed upon ourselves. But it's not cut/dried as the other "take the 3rd round pick and let the door hit him on the way out" people want to make it seem.

When throwing around WR in rounds 2 through 4 why is Ryan Swope and his blazing speed and good hands never mentioned?

Not to mention this almost forces them into a WR at 1.17 and certainly by 2.49 a WR has to be taken and then one later in the draft. Brown, Cotchery, Burris, practice squad receivers and rookies is a losing proposition in my book in a league that is pass happy.
It's going to be a long 2 years (maybe longer) for the black and gold, IMO.

The Steelers should start talking to small school and late round projected WR's that could go under after and play up that they should sign with us as we need WR's.
I have mixed feelings about it. I would love the extra 3rd but this team is weak in some many areas that I don't think we can afford to lose Sanders as well.
