    Well, they've ticked off Bouchette.

    IMO, there was no absolute Win or Lose in this situation (at least not yet). It can trend toward a win with a long-term reasonable contract and Sanders' health and productivity for at least a few years, a WIN if he is instrumental in another SB. It will trend toward a Lose if he gets hurt and misses alot of time, and it will be a LOSE if he will not sign a reasonable longer term contract and leaves after one year. I would have chosen to let him go, and take the 3rd round pick by a modest preponderance of the facts as I saw them.

    Time now for Sanders and Ben to produce favorable results. I think Brady and Belichick could have put him in position to earn alot of money, had he been allowed to go. Not as confident that will happen for him in Pittsburgh.

    It's a good move if you have a WIN NOW attitude. But losing 2 of ur top 3 WRs in an offseason could be disastrous for a team who isn't running the ball well.

    No Thor, the Steelers removed the 'problem' WR. It's all roses & rainbows from here.

    Now that we have some stability in our starting receiver corps lets get Le'veon Bell in here to shore up the run game, and Tyler Eifert to enhance the passing game, those two additions will make Ben a happy camper.

    It was the right move. Thanks, Steelers FO.

    Ditto. It was a no-brainer that this had to be done. They'll sign him to a long-term deal here this summer.....
