    Everyone seems to be ignoring his recent injury history. Whether a backup or not, he's got to be available when needed. The Steelers can do better drafting a backup.

    Not at all. Injury history is why his cost will be a fraction of what it was. He ain’t a central piece my friend.

    Drafting a legit backup takes away another pick that could use a “starter” upgrade.

    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    TCFCLTC-

    The titans and vrabel are the most fined team in the league for their physical practices. I suspect that is a factor for who’s available on game day. That being said, buds price is now back in reality and I also agree - if he’s good with 16-20 snaps a game in a 3 man rotation I think this would be a strong signing.

    I'm not sure. I've little doubt he probably wants to come back here.

    It’s part of the “at the right price” formula for sure.

    They probably do need to draft a guy given Highsmith’s impending shot at FA but having more good players in the room isn’t a bad thing.

    Another old, broken down FA. Not the wisest way to go.
