    Would drive some crazy, but I would...

    Look to bring back Terrell Edmunds. He isn't a Pro Bowler, but he is a solid player who doesn't miss games. More importantly he is a great partner for Minkah, just like Ryan Clark was for Troy

    The safeties we put out in 2023 were not anywhere as good as Edmunds.

    Time to get past the false narrative on Edmunds because he wasn't a Pro Bowler and see him as the asset he was for us. We are a better team with him than without him

    I agree. Tons of breakdowns without him.

    Also remember Edmunds missed the Buffalo game in 2022 in Kenny’s first start when Josh Allen threw for almost 300 yards in the first half on 4 pass plays.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    I'd rather bring Rowe back than Edmunds. They're probably similar in age. Rowe may be a bit older.
    Help me find my post proving I am a Yinzer!

    My early 2024 draft:

    1.) OC - Jackson Powers-Johnson, C - Oregon
    2.) DL -Ruke Orhorhoro, DL, Clemson
    3.) WR - Nathaniel Dell, WR - Houston
    4a.) OT - Matt Goncalves, ROT - Pitt
    4b.) S -Tykee Smith - S - Georgia
    6A.) CB - Shon Stephensl - D - Ferris State
    6B..) DT - Jamree Kromah DT James Madison

    UDFA: P, WR, QB, TE



    We don't apologize for winning!

    I'd be happy for this to happen.

    SS is a need on this team and Edmunds is a solid guy who's likely to stay healthy.

    And he should be able to spend a bunch of time in the box so Minkah can play CF instead of being an ILB like he was this season.

    I wanted us to keep him around, but I get him wanting to go see if he could get a longer term commitment from someone else.

    I'd like to see both back, and I don't think either will be expensive.

    Edmunds was born in 1997 (~ 27 next season).
    Rowe was born in 1992 (~ 32 next season).

    For normal people, that's not a big age gap IMO. But for pro athletes, I think it's a big deal.

    This.

    Fill an starting role with a guy we know is competent.

    Look for bigger fish to fry in the draft.

    He's already turned down an offer from us once (IIRC). But maybe he comes back after seeing the grass on the other side?

    This. Rowe is quicker to diagnose plays and that is what constantly got Edmands to the dance a bit late on a regular basis. I'd keep Rowe around and if we found a compliment in the draft to Fitz this would be the time to get him on board before Rowe ages out.

    Was letting Edmunds walk another 'misevaluation' by the HC??

    I'll say one thing after watching the games yesterday, I'm jealous of BAL and Hamilton. Dude is a Troy in the making.

    I don't think so. Although I would have been fine if we offered him the 1 year $2M contract instead of the 1 year 4-year with the same team contract (same we gave him the year before).

    I think it was more that Edmunds took a little bit more money because that's probably how players should operate. And maybe in a different system he could make more plays (didn't really happen that way though).

    He went there. Got traded. And is maybe waiting to see if he'll get resigned where he was traded to. He played in 16 games and had 4 starts. Played about 30% of defensive snaps with TEN, and about 70% with PHI. 1 INT, 2.5 sacks, 48 tackles (2 for loss).

    I think the league is saying he is what we thought he was. Probably a good 3rd S. OK starter.
