    Ike would probably be better with the play in front of him at this stage in his career. And hes MUCH more physical and a better tackler than bailey. Thats all i was getting at, both are unlikely at this point

    no interest in a broken down, old CB.....

    what do we keep hearing over and over again?... the Steelers need to get younger on defense... this ain't the way to do it.

    The dude is never healthy, so nothing else even needs said. Didn't he take the whole season off and then do nothing in the Super Bowl? Why would he help us? Not even in the realm of deserving consideration. I only started the thread because I was shocked no one else already had; every vet of note who gets cut is mentioned as someone who Pgh should sign, like clock work. I think Pgh should go back to not signing/re-signing anyone 30 or older, period. Only FAs they should consider should be 27 or younger. Philly stayed good for years until they junked that philosophy. The only exceptions are along the lines of a Hines Ward and Big Ben. Other than players like those, never sign players over 30. Keep adding young guys. Only hitch is to draft well, or it will fail.

    Agree. And it's plain silly almost every time they do it. And I was shocked when I saw no one already posted on Champ.

    if he was a steeler there would be a ton of people clamoring to resign him
    1) First ballot HOF, ROTY
    2) All Pro first year, first round talent that fell to us in second
    3) Starter for years to come, cant believe he fell
    4) Absolute steal of draft, 2nd round grade
    5) Back up at first then starter for 10 years
    6) Incredible depth and ST demon
    7) Amazing value, shoulda went 3 rounds earlier

    IDK, Browns have $60 mill in cap space and STILL didn't want him. I think prior to this year he was solid but took a big step back, I am guessing. Actually, I am wrong: his 2013 tackles were up over 2012. IDK. Maybe he represents the "old" losing attitude they want to clean house of?
