    Not surprised they didn't pick up the option on Edmunds. He was a reach pick who has improved, but not enough to warrant that kind of money.

I would love to see the Steelers sign Edmunds to a modest extension, and maybe they plan to do so without setting the floor at $6.7/year annually. Not that I think Edmunds is great, but the Steelers have a lot of needs next year - QB (probably), CB, OL (it will take 2-3 drafts to rebuild) - and do not need to create another need.
    Ya...we'll see if they try to negotiate a long term deal with him this offseason. Hopefully they feel like they can extend him cheaper than the 5th year option.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing us eventually move Haden to S to prolong his career in Pittsburgh.

    Ive never been big on Edmunds.

    It still annoys me that the Steelers passed on Darius Leonard for this bum.

    hindsight is always 20/20...they drafted Conner the year before in the 3rd rd and had Bell as well. You are suggesting they turn around and draft Chubb in Rd 1 in 2018??? Glad you aren't the GM.

    why so aggressive? I only mentioned him because the other poster said Darius Leonard.

    makes me not want to post here anymore.

    It will be interesting to see how they use the space they have.

    And if the mid-tier UFA market is still depressed, it could be great to have space with few guys under contract.

    I really hope that this isn't Colbert's last year. I think next off season will be very important and I'd prefer to have a known good GM in charge because the chances of screwing up is really high.
    Yes.. most definitely. We need Colbert to stay 3 more years to see us through the full transition.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 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.

    Dolphin fans in the 90’s who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70’s...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    but but but Colbert didn't draft the positions like you wanted him to
    Steel Maniac predicted no RBs would be chosen in the 1st round, so of course we selected:

    1(24) Najee Harris RB Alabama
