Thread: What to do with 5 mill?

  1. #1

    What to do with 5 mill?

    Steelers in a few days will get $5 million dollars to spend towards any FA or this years draft class.

    I would guess a good 2 million will count towards signing our draft class...So my question is what to do with the rest
    of the cash?

    What decent FA(s) are out there that can make an impact?

    Other question, Nfl Network says we plan to get a WR whom I forgot his name. Help!

    Keep an eye out on the Steelers signing Steve Breaston, I would use that money to give Sanders a reasonable extension.
    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...

    Sign Flippy to a cap friendly deal. That's what I'd do.

    I may be wrong, but I believe that unused cap money can be rolled over to the next season.

    I think signing a veteran offensive lineman - perhaps Caldwell, who visited before - who can backup at C and OG would be a wise move. Since the Steelers forfeited a third round pick to keep Sanders, I would like to see him retained, but not at an exhorbitant cost. If he would take a reasonable deal, commensurate with his ability as a low level #2 or decent #3, then retain him. Otherwise - no thanks.

    Rite on, def sign Sanders for something reasonable before he turns into a POS, (a'la Wallace)...Had enuff malcontents last season. No need for any half arsed playing and distraction.. and indeed, get a veteran lineman..

    Don't get me wrong...I like Steve Breaston...

    But, why? A one year deal to be the 3/4 WR?

    Brown, Sanders, Wheaton, Cotchery...do they think he'll beat out Cotchery? Is the plan to phase Wheaton in slowly? If they sign Breaston, do they cut Cotchery outright?

    I can understand going after Breaston if you decided not to match the offer for Sanders...but, now?

    I liked Breaston when he was the third receiver behind Fitz and Boldin. I haven't paid much attention since, but if you do go after him then I think that it signals the end for Cotch.

    Believe it or not, I've been expecting Breaston as well...

    Or the end for Plax..

    Breaston is someone that Haley had both in Az and KC. He performed "solid" under Haley both times (but struggled in 2012-2013 without Haley). Gives the kid a chance to get back home, too...
