    I just heard that Russel Wilson accepted a team friendly deal with the Steelers. Nothing signed yet of course. But it?s a done deal. Guess all that talk about KP getting another chance was nonsense. Which it should be.

    Sources: Russell Wilson to sign free-agent deal with Steelers

    Adam Schefter, ESPN Senior Writer
    Mar 10, 2024

    Nine-time Pro-Bowl quarterback and former Super-Bowl champion Russell Wilson plans to sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers, league sources told ESPN.

    Wilson will sign a team-friendly, one-year deal in which the Broncos will wind up paying $38 million of his salary while Wilson wears the black and yellow.

    Wilson visited with Steelers officials in Pittsburgh for over six hours Friday. He met with, amongst others, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. The two sides had a mutual interest that led to their one-year deal.

    Pickett should ask for a trade. Let's face it, they're not really bringing Wilson in to be "competition," no matter how they try to spin it.

    Steelers have shown what they really think about KP. Saying that they're going to "develop" him while sitting on the bench behind Wilson, well, I just don't see it.

    Not crazy about this move (1 year rental of an aging, declining QB) from where we sit in March of 2024, but we shall see.

    Wilson is a great QB but I don't really understand this move, 1 year deal so what is the point? It'd be one thing if he was going to a loaded team that just needed a QB and as great as Wilson is he is obviously past his prime. The bigger picture is the team is clearly giving up on KP without ever really giving him much of a chance, Wilson is not coming to Pittsburgh to be the backup. New coaching staff please because it's clear this team has no real plan in place under Tomlin anymore other than let's just compete in the most general sense of the word.

    Well Mason sitting on the bench seemed to help him improve. Maybe the same for KP?

    It means the Steelers believe they are a QB away from a SB run. And guess what? I agree. Now is Wilson enough QB for that run? Depends. I suspect yes. What I believe is happening is Wilson realizes his street isnt what he wants it to be for one last big contract. This is his time to prove he can be that QB of old the market. So he plays his best ball this year. If he does that welp this Steelers team is good enough to make a run. If he doesnt? He costs little to nothing. KP isnt the answer. A rookie QB isn’t starting this year. They sign Wilson, make a run and we draft a guy this year. Buys a year. Do I think the Steelers will sign him long term even if he balls out? No unless he takes a team friendly deal and he wont.

    KP, MT, and MR combined for 13 TD passes last season while Wilson threw for 26 Touchdowns by himself so this has to be considered an upgrade.
    Obviously the standard is the standard.

    They are all in on this season. We won 10 games with some of the worst QB play in the league. If you consider what we can do in free agency with a good deal to spend can still restructure guys and the draft, give me not elite but simply “good” QB play from Russ and how hard would it be to get to say 12-13 wins? I think we can take the division and give KC a run.

    If Russ GETS US CLOSE extend a couple years. He STILL won’t be crazy expensive. His market would be limited as an older player no longer capable of carrying an offense. Good teams have a QB and he can’t fix bad teams.

    If it is a fail, move on. We will know by mid season, let Kenny finish and show what he has got. Frankly, I think he should be able to show in that time if we want to keep him. Frank truth? Kenny will have no market whatsoever. If he flashes we can keep him if we want as Tomlins opinion of him is higher than anybody.

    If both fail we draft again. But if Kenny is bad THAT happens anyway without Russ.

    Upside? We MIGHT make a run with Russ.
    Downside of signing Russ? I don’t see one.




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

    As I said before, KP, MT, and MR combined for 25 TDs total since Ben retired to Russells 26. No brainer.

    agreed.

    especially since we're only paying $1.2 million of his $39 million salary.
