    He took a one year deal to up his market value (with us or someone else). So his decision should be more about future money than present money.

    I think he figured that it's better to be the 1st /...

    Scoring early in games and avoiding turnovers would also be huge factors in us not having to throw all the time.

    Also giving up on this strategy of short passes are the new runs. It kind of makes...

    Wonder what the numbers looks like as cap per open roster spot.

    Or how they change after TJ becomes the most expensive defender in the league?

    I think we'll have more flexibility that usual,...

    I hope that we get lots of reps in the off season, and still play the HoF game (so we get an extra pre-season game).

    We need to develop some familiarity on the line. Got a bunch of new faces, or...

    You do need two to tango to sign UDFAs. Unlike draft picks, they get to pick where they go.

    Since we have more holes on our roster than usual, it might be more appealing to come to the Steelers...

    I think the Freiermuth pick only really makes sense if it was pure BPA.

    TE wasn't really a huge need this year with Ebron coming back. It's not a huge deal to sign a vet TE2 to play 18% of the...

    Ya. It was a reasonable signing of a one-dimensional guy (pretty good at that one dimension) for about the average value of a starting TE. It's kind of how we had been dealing with the TE position...

    I guess a potential fall back plan if he doesn't end up working at C could be to slide him to G (maybe DD's last year) and draft a C again next year?

    That wouldn't be bad if it worked either.

    Yep. Nice to have at least an NFL caliber player currently available at slot.

    Hopefully Pierre or one of the rookies (S.Brown?) end up stealing this job. But signing Maulet sets the floor for the...

    That's certainly the downside of having virtually no cap space.

    My guess is that it's a vet minimum deal. I think that will be basically true of almost any add we do from here on out.

    I voted "no" for now.

    It's not impossible that it turns out better. But there are so many questions about the players and the system that it's hard to vote yes.

    Yep. We're looking for minimum guys because of the cap situation. Seems like this guy can play S or slot. Seems like a nice attribute for a backup to have.

    Thanks. This was a fun watch.

    You can tell that they seem excited to talk about him.

    Ultimately, it feels to me like how he works out will go a long way toward grading this draft.

    Hopefully...

    I didn't know that.

    That would be good if possible.

    I thought you needed to do extensions so that the SB was prorated from the time of signing (and usually accompanied by ratcheting the 1st...

    It all sounds good.

    1) I hope he's right
    2) I wonder if he wrote all of this before or after we selected Green. I really liked that Moats was talking up Freiermuth before the draft because I know...

    I was thinking this too.

    But then I was listening to the latest Terrible Podcast. They pointed out that a long term deal with him could increase his cap hit for this year. And that's not something...

    Good QBs are supposed to elevate skill position guys. It's not a coincidence that we've had good receivers since...

    Ya, the smirk when he's saying it makes it look more like a joke to me.

    But I hope he gets owned by Highsmith and Watt 2x next season.

    If the other option is Dumbist, Dumber looks like a reasonable solution.

    Hopefully one of the UDFA players works out (and / or Pierre).
