    We’ll see how things play out for our secondary. As far as AB goes the Raiders sent a younger Amari Cooper with three 1000+ yard seasons to the Cowboys and got an older AB from the Steelers. AB is obviously still talented but comes with a risk to the locker room. We’ll see how it works out.

      If you play in the NFL and you perform you are entitled to get paid winning a Superbowl or not. Only 1 team can win the super bowl period. AMD since 2000 I think there has be what 8 different teams won the superbowl. If you are putting your body on the line for your team get paid. That is completely crazy to think only qbs oline, and des should get paid high. I highly doubt anyone who had a son in the NFL that paid wr, or rb you would tell them. You don't need to get paid bc your position is not valuable. Miss me with that.
      Until we get a TRUE not name "Lock" qb we will miss the playoffs and be average at best! I'm E2DS and I approve this message! "AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW, NOW YA KNOW."

        Never said we could fix the whole team in one offseason but the beauty in my thinking is these guys are all younger. AB is 31 this year, that’s not really setting the future or present up For success besides a couple flashy seasons with a WR that would lead no where

          Man stop that was one season. He did a great job. Hopefully he can do that again. And everyone knows we lucked up with that. Philip Lindsey can do that again then we will talk. And again we have not play makers on offense.

            That’s right. He has carried the Steelers to....

            Oh yes.. no rings...and 4 playoff TDS in 10 games...

            19mil/year is better spent in other areas...

              Agreed, we are getting left behind so bad in the AFC west

                You’re taking my statement completely wrong. I’m not saying they don’t deserve to get paid and some team should pay them that amount. I’m saying we shouldn’t because paying elite money to those position because you don’t need them to be successful. That being said, I’m not saying you don’t need good wr and rb. Just not elite WR and RB.

                  Yea we could easily get left behind. That’s why I think we need to make sure we hit FA hard for Defense. Building an elite defense in a division that’s going high powered offense may be our solution.

                  I know you’re not a fan of Flacco but Flacco has played well in some tough situations.

                    But to be fair, a WR is not expected to win SBs, just because of what they bring. There are loads of top tier WRs who never got a ring. There are loads of top tier "players" including QBs who never won a championship.

                    If I can speak objectively, AB has game changing skills. He can get open for big chunks of yardage. Great hands, speed, moves, agility. He's taken some seriously dangerous hits, but keeps on coming. And as I mentioned, a practice freak, and one known to work with younger players.


                    I am not a big fan by any means, but if handled properly, he can be a huge asset on the field...and maybe a veteran presence in the practice zone.

                    But yes, he can be a risk, for the price/diva potential.

                    • The raiders are spending,., they got better...if they can use brown...

                      And maybe his 3 playoff wins in 8 seasons as a starter will improve...

                        And your point? In that same timespan he has been with the team no one else has done the same...who on the Steelers have more pro bowls in that same time. Super bowls are not won by one person. Even if they did win qb usually get the MVP bc the NFL is dumb on that. How many td, catches, yards...and since brown been with Steelers what's has big ben done??????

                            Dont matter if our def holds then to 14-20 points if we can score...we old injury prone flacco, Sanders coming off season ending injury, 2 second era, no t.e., question oline, .....not seeing much scoring. Super bowl prove no matter how good ur def plays...if you can't score you will lose anyway.

                                That's your opinion and you are entitled. Moving on. We agree to disagree.
