    solidifies are backfield with young talent.
    wont need to draft one until late, if at all
    'moral victories' are for losers

    I like this!

    I still think we need to bring a couple young guys in. I wouldn't be surprised to see 3 RB draft pick/UDFAs in camp. Would still like to see LSH as third down guy.

    I love this. I wanted him ever since his draft class. NE is stupid for not caring to get him back. I felt this kid ran like a Steeler all along. I love, love, love this.

    I like the signing - I think Blount is a better back than Dwyer, so this is one area where the Steelers have arguable improved. I'd also like to see a change of pace / return guy type back picked late.

    One thing that I really like is that there is no news of any restructuring, which means that Blount was likely squeezed under the cap with a first year cap hit of less than $1.5 million. I'd think that this will be the last move before the draft, with the Steelers waiting to maybe add one or two more veteran players after Woodley's money becomes available.

    I really love this pick up. I agree we need a change of pace back. Check my sig for my thoughts on that.

    I think Felix or LSH should be that guy

    Crazy how fast we are at RB with the top two guys totaling 480 pounds

    Even though we weren't going to draft a RB high, this still allows us to worry less about RB in the draft. Now we can go....

    - CB
    - FS
    - NT
    - WR
    - LB, not necessarily in that order.
