    Finley is still a possibility even though his spine was crushed into a liquid.

    Havent heard much about his recovery.

    Wish they would have brought in Lylerla

    So was Antonio Brown who did less his rookie year than Sanders.

    That pinky finger didn't seem to be a particularly strong part of his hands.

    the Steelers had the chance to draft Lyerla in the 7th round but chose another TE in Blanchflower instead. most likely the coke head who quit on his team at Oregon wasn't even on their draft board...

    I am aware of that. I was commenting on the talent gap between heath and the next best TE on the roster and how a low risk/high reward guy like that could possibly bridge that gap with little to no commitment.

    Same reasons i wanted Burfict

    I'm going with Cam Heyward. Our depth at DE scares the daylights out of me.
