    how many teams who value WR have been to a SB the last 10 or so years? seems like most teams who pay big bucks to WR end up being average or below average.

    I think the Steelers have shown they can get great value from mid rounders or let WR's walk if they are 1st rounders who want crazy paydays.

    Like I said, the Steelers assign a value to every players and that is the max they will give them. They don't play the auction game.
    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!

    The Steelers don't value WRs?

    Antonio Brown? Hines Ward?

    The Steelers value certain WRs...not ones who prove to be head cases or are one trick ponies...

    It's about how you produce and they keep the good ones.

    In the few catches he made, I noticed the hands too. Finally, a WR that, once he gets his hands on the ball, won't let it go.

    Any word on Justin Brown? I still think he has some potential too.
    I am thinking Brown could prove out well, too. Liked him alot at PSU.

    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    Yeah. I just wish J. Brown was also with Wheaton and Moye.

    Because there will be alot of production that needs to be replaced if we don't re-sign Cotchery and/or Sanders.(preferably Cotchery)

    I often wonder what kind of passing numbers Ben would have if he had a receiving core with some stability.

    wr seems to be one of the few positions the steelers dont screw up on when it comes to contracts
    1) CB D Dennard
    2) OLB R Shazier
    3) DE J Ellis
    4) WR M Bryant
    5a) OG D Yankey
    5b) OLB J Tripp
    6a) RB D Archer
    6b) NT D McCullers
    7) WR J Janis
