    2014 Steelers roster part 2

    First off you will notice that this involves 2 mid-large FA signings (Soliai and Jenkins) and 2 lesser ones (Spencer and Brown). While this is uncharacteristic of the Steelers, it will be impossible to field a playoff caliber team trying to plug holes through the draft alone. Given the amount of Veterans expected to be cut or let walk. The front office will have no choice but to bring in a couple of street FA's.

    FA signings- Paul Soliai-DT(unhappy in MIA), Fernando Velasco, Jason Worilds, Anthony Spencer (needs to get back to a 3-4), Donald Brown, Malcolm Jenkins (Kenny Vaccaro makes him expendable)

    Gone- Felix Jones, Manny Sanders, Levi Brown, Ziggy Hood, Brett Kiesel, Lamar Woodley, Ryan Clark

    Restructure- Ike Taylor, Troy Polamalu, Heath Miller use savings to get back on cap track.

    Use Woodley's money to sign Worilds and Spencer. Hood and Keisels to sign Soliai. Jones to sign Velasco. Use Clark and Manny Sanders $$ to sign Malcolm Jenkins.

    I think this team would compete for a division title.


    QB: (3)- Ben Roethlisberger, Bruce Gradkowski, Landry Jones

    RB: (5)- LeVeon Bell, Donald Brown, Johnathan Dwyer, Roy Finch, Will Johnson

    DE: (4)- Cameron Heyward, Steve McClendon, Al Woods, Brian Arnfelt

    DT: (3)- Paul Soliai, Daniel McCullers, Hebron Fangupo

    OLB: (4)- Jason Worilds, Jarvis Jones, Anthony Spencer, Prince Shembo,

    ILB-: (4)- Lawrence Timmons, Vince Williams, Sean Spence, Max Bullough

    CB: (5) -Darqueeze Dennard, Ike Taylor, Cortez Allen, William Gay, Stanley Jean-Baptiste

    I like what you're suggesting, but will there really be enough money in the pot to sign all those FA's?

    SKL, I love the thought...and your assessment of the current talent out there. Some of those names I'm not familiar with but you addressed all gaping holes except ILB.

    With that said, I have never seen the Steelers roll like this...make a huge power play in FA. So, until I see the Steelers do something like this...I'll just have to mark it up to wishful thinking.

    The OLB shakeout in particular, doesn't seem to add up. We cut Wood, we save some dollars, but we have to eat a lot too. So eating that, plus paying (presumably) a premium contract for Worilds, and having more dough for a (still) valuable Anthony Spencer? Whatever you could sign Spencer for, if you compound it with Woodley's dead money, I'm guessing would be like paying a $8-10m LB anyway.

    SKL--isn't the problem with cutting Woodley is that we save the most money if we wait until after June 1st? Most likely Worilds and Spencer wouldn't be waiting until them to be signed.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    We can franchise Worilds and work a deal later. Spencer is 30 and coming off an injury and a year in which Dallas moved him to DE, a position he hasn't played since Purdue. I think he would be a bargain FA, probably on a 1 or 2 year deal.

    I AGREE. This is way off there MO. However I can't remember the roster being so depleted of starting quality and depth. This is really a different year. We have found excellent starters through FA before (Farrior, Clark, Greene etc...) It just so happens we need a couple more than usual this year.

    Geez! I haven't been paying attention to what has been going on lately and at first misunderstood the post. I thought that all those deals had been made and was thrilled. Even though I had no idea who the players were except Spencer it just sounded good and for a split second I figured they were actually going to get back into the football business.

    I am really hoping Woodley heals. I am not a Worilds person at all. Franchise? They gotta be kidding. He is next to nothing.

    You say Spencer is available. That would be huge.

    I really like the direction you are going. If the changes you suggest could be pulled off we would have a much stronger roster.
