    Chicago had the lowest number of players signed to their roster... 33.

    That's all I got...

    Most teams haven't signed their picks yet, and frankly, there is no rush. The Steelers signed a bunch of their guys early last year, when they did have some money. Aside from the first round pick, the rest are pretty much slotted anyway, so there is no urgency.

    Nope. There is zero reason for urgency. It doesn't matter at all right now. Chill.

    FYI, steelers usually are one of the first teams to get all their guys under contract.
    With the new slotting system, rarely does someone go unsigned very long into OTAs and mini camp.
    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
