The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?
I hit him as hard as I could - Jack Lambert
Bring back Keisel for a year, and add somebody at the position. I'd prefer a mid round pick - Brent Urban could be a great fit with a lot of upside.
Kiesel's agent said he will not play for anyone for vet min. So if you bring Kiesel back...Wait until after the draft.
Id prefer being a man down on the dline than extending hood.
Keisel is the way to go, even if hes a limited rotation player
The Steelers should explore bringing in Alex Carrington (DE), Cam Thomas(NT), & Terrance Cody(NT). If they can get one of them under contract, that would give them some flexibilty. Also eliminate some depth issues going into draft. That wouldn't change anything in the draft...DL would still be addressed if BPA worked out that way.
Ed Stinson and Brent Urban are my picks for DEs in the mid rounds this year. Carrington has beena long time favorite of mine, square peg in a round hole in buffalo though
I know that Hood is one of the board whipping boys, but if we can keep him for a reasonable price he plays a solid if not spectatcular game, he knows the system and he is durable and doesn't miss games. He also has positional flexibility and can play on the nose if he has to.
It's great to say take this guy and that guy in the draft and then do what, wait until 2016 for them to play (like Heyward)? We need people playing the 2014 season and Hood would start Game 1.
