They just signed Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie too and Terrance Knighton and Louis Vasquez earlier. Talk about a team that's loading up and in full win now mode.

Former Cowboys OLB Victor Butler will visit the Steelers on Thursday... and will likely leave once he finds out they're only offering NFL minimum wage. He's apparently got other teams interested so I doubt he signs for the minimum.

I read somewhere (less than reputable probably) that Steven Jackson is getting close/very interested in signing with Green Bay. That'd be just unfair.

Yeah, I don't know how that would work. He's obviously a great weapon but he's right around the age that RB's start to break down and that's an offense in Green Bay that doesn't exactly feature the running game since they have a dominating QB. Makes sense though. Green Bay is one of those win now teams. A veteran like Jackson could put them over the top.

Colts just signed former Jets S LaRon Landry. I've always liked Landry as a player.

We need a NT... and someone as talented as Knighton went for 2 years / 4.5 million...

what the **** Colbert? We surely had the money for that.

Steelers took a look at Beanie Wells.

Quote:
The Steelers had running back Beanie Wells in for a physical this week. Wells, drafted in the first round by Arizona in 2009 from Ohio State, was released Monday by the Cardinals. His career, as with Mendenhall's, has been pocked with injuries, particularly to both knees.

DEAR LORD NO

Beanie is horrible. He can't catch, can't pass block, poor vision, and is soft as a pillow.

I'd imagine they were just doing their due diligence. They didn't sign him. Even if they do, it will be a minimum deal where the Steelers will have nothing to lose.

He was always going to go back to play for Jack Del Rio.

As a huge Buckeye fan - please stay away Beanie. He is garbage.

He'd still be better than no one. Who is even under contract right now?

I feel like Dwyer is hugely underrated. When our offensive line was competent (re: when Colon played), he showed some very good skills and was quite productive. I have no issue at all with him and Redman (when healthy) being the feature backs. Batch can be the 3rd down back until something better comes along (he at least blocks well).

I got ridiculed when I questioned Colbert a few years ago. I think he's a guy that is sitting on the 2002 and 98 draft and has safety. I can't think of many drafts that have killed it since then w/ big time players.

I really hate the make up of this team.

Makes sense. Jacksonville treated him like trash last year. I'd love to have good ol' Pot Roast here in Pittsburgh. Easily one of the most underrated defenders in the league.

Obviously too early to tell, but I think last year's draft was good for the Steelers. DeCastro and Adams were solid, we didn't get to see Sean Spence or Ta'amu, Rainey was good but he was released after his arrest. Paulson looks like a decent TE.

Steelers lost Lewis.

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter
Next CB deal likely done is in New Orleans. Saints are close to deal with Steelers free-agent CB Keenan Lewis that could be done today.

Hopefully Allen can play as well as he did last year.

It'll be interesting to see the numbers on the Lewis deal. If it isn't a huge contract that's probably pretty telling that the Steelers think Allen can do the job just as good. Time will tell.

I'd sign Wells. There's really nothing to lose by taking a look at him since the money is going to be minimal. You never know what a change of scenery will do for a player. Bears fans claimed for years that Cedric Benson ran like a ballerina but then he went to Cincinnati and became a heck of a RB for a while.

Allen isn't my concern. He's young, he'll make mistakes, but he'll also make some plays.

My concern is, as we saw last year when Ike was out, teams avoided Lewis and Allen, and threw at whoever was covered by Brown/Victorian/King/Ainsley Battles/Russ Stuvaints

God damnit. Why didn't we sign Keenan? Whatever. All the Pats, Broncos, Ravens, (you know, the teams competing for championships every season in the AFC) do is pass the ball. Not excited about Beanie either.

Gay gets to cover Welker! YES SOOOOO confident in that matchup.
