Yeah, I'm also interested to see how Foster and the rest of the line adjust to a new scheme.
I'm not surprised he signed before UFA though. The negotiating period began March 9th. NFL put that in to stop the tampering that used to go on. His reps have been allowed to talk to other teams for the past few days. I guess after talking to other teams he realized the Steelers offer was good enough.
Tone was traded for a 5th. AB was a 6th.
The problem is we are always trying to replace that production. Why not keep what we have and build on it. It not coincidence the best we've seen the offense perform In recent years is when we had tone, Hines, and Wallace as our 3rd receiver
