    I can't complain. He fills a need.

    A speedy, young vet, who played well with played with Luck. IT was so long ago, I can't recall how he played with a good QB. Not sure who the 3rd WR, nor TE (Doyle?), nor RB was.

    This was a pretty weak class of outside FA WRs... T. Williams, Moncrief, and Conley were the top 3. Not sure why Indy signed Funches( sp) over Moncrief. I thought that maybe TY and Luck would endorse a reunion.


    The key to this signing is :

    JuJu keep takes over asWR#1 and keeps improving.
    And hope his contract is friendly.
    ďIím so tired of LeíVeon," DeCastro told reporters (h/t ESPN's Jeremy Fowler ([url]https://twitter.com/JFowlerESPN/status/1038909446146203649[/url])) after Sunday's game. "Iím so tired of it. Letís just worry about the guys in here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love LeíVeon, but we gotta worry about the guys in here. Theyíre the only people that matter to me."

    great signing. gives us more flexibity to take a WR a little later on if needed... slides TE up the draft board for us also

    I don’t know much about him. Is he a slot receiver? I’m assuming he’s not a #2 type receiver but would help in 4/5 WR sets?

    He's listed at 6'2" and is known for taking the top off of defenses. I'd have to think he would fit in well for us as a #2. We should be set at the slot..

    Thanks Ernie. Sounds like a cheaper version of Golden Tate. We need a burner.

    Wait, the Steelers signed another FA? I thought Colbert was too busy watching the Pirates in FL. I guess when you have a pen and a phone you can multitask?

    Oh, and I thought no FAs would ever sign with Pittsburgh again. You know, because we treat our players so badly.

    Nice thing is, he's been in the league 5 or 6 years... but is only 25-26 years old. I could see him having a breakout season with us this year.

    Me too. I’ve been kinda admiring him from his Indy days. On paper, he was always poised for a big year but would have injuries. But with the way we use Wr’s I could see he and juju being 1 & 1a. I thought he had the next best free agent potential behind Williams. This is a good, good get for us.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    Very good signing! It does move WR need lower in priority to mid round now. Starting to shape out what the Steelers are targeting the most in the first two rounds.. besides best player available, of course.

    Yeah... that’s a terrible nerrative out there about us. We pay and treat our guys very well.
