In the Draft. I like what we have done, It just bothers me that Ben has 1 Wr he is use to gunning to. SH makes sense IF he has grown up and stays healthy.
Legend, don't you think taking back SH would kind of destroy the whole PR point in ditching him to begin with? If Rooney takes him back, then it's as if he never had a point to begin with. For that reason alone, I don't see them even considering it for even 1 second. I just don't see it. If we head into the preseason with AB, Wheaton, Moore, Moye, Brown and add a rookie or two (or if we draft Ebron, who would be like having another WR in many ways and we could run lots to two TE sets), plus Bell is a hell of a pass catching back, I think we will be fine. I think Wheaton will prove a quality 2 this season. Sure, he hasn't proven it yet, but looking at his college production, I have all the confidence, now healthy, he will prove to be solid. Even super star WRs often have weak rookie years, so I am not worried.

But break down guess is something like NLTBE incentive of 150,000 in 2014 if gains 800 or more yards. And maybe a 850,000 base 2014. So cap charge for 2014 would be 1.325m and 2m in 2015 and maybe a 50,000 roster bonus. That would total 4m he says. I am sure he will have better concrete money info soon over there. Wonder if this is same type of deal offered to MJD. Wonder how it compares to what the Raiders gave MJD. Will have to look that up

This dude is gonna be good for us. In case you forgot how hard he runs, check this out. The Steelers will bring back that physical style of play. This is the most we have improved in the off season in a long time. Pretty exciting.
I love Dri Archer and the potential weapon he could be coming out of the backfield and as a kick and punt returner.

Not only did we land this bruiser; we got him in his PRIME. This is the best I felt about signing a free agent since Farrior, Kevin Greene or trading for Bettis. Just wait till teams have to deal with Bell all day, and then we bring this beast in. Hollllllerrrr.
I do see your point...I just remember the gamebreaker he was for us in the year we won the SB. He won 3-4 games because of mostly his game breaking skills. Plus the fact that he will come dirt cheap and Ben and him have the chemistry. My last point is that people when they get a little older change for the good. He hasn't seen the back of a cop car in some while now.

J Finley could be a viable option also when our 8 mill kicks in.
Well on that video he runs kind of like Bell. Maybe even more open field speed. Not as shifty as Bell I think. Going to be a very nice running game I think. Just hope he can keep his temper in check.
Blount is a great signing. He isn't Bettis but he can pound and has decent speed for a big back.
