    Those are game changers right there. It's good to see the Steelers get serious about improving the team.
    1. Carl Lawson-DE/OLB Auburn
    2. Marcus Williams-FS Utah
    3 Jake Butt-TE Michigan
    3B. Raekwon McMillan-ILB tOSU
    4. Samaje Perine-RB OU
    5. Eddie Vanderdoes-DT/DE UCLA
    6. Josh Malone-WR Tennessee
    7. Tarik "The Human Joystick" Cohen-RB/WR/PR, NCA+T

    I just hope it means we won't be using one of our draft picks on a punter...

    I know you are being funny but I think they need better options than who we finished the year with. Not saying either of these guys are the answer either. McBriar certainly can be replaced. He did an adequate job but he isn't a long term answer. It will cost the Steelers 1.8 mil to retain Warren & McBriar on vet mins. Better start looking.

    yes, because it worked out so well last time and we don't have any other needs that we have to address...

    How does a kid who was first team All-American at a major SEC school and Ray Guy Finalist as one of the best punters in college not get signed all year? I'd be letting McBriar know his services are no longer required immediately.

    As for Warren - sign and keep him. 9 solid years of never having to worry about an errant snap is worth every penny. They bring in guys year after year and he never gets beat out. He's good for another 2 or 3 years at least.

    He apparently had an arrest for simple battery in 2011 and then was suspended from the 2012 Chick-fil-A bowl for an undisclosed violation of team rules. That might have something to do with it, I'd imagine. Aussie bastage.
