Reading via various tweets and google searches the Steelers are interested

Wonder if it’s bullshit or legit

Thoughts?

I said in another thread if it came down to Houston or Tate, I'd take Houston

Our defense needs the resources and I wouldn't expect immediate help from the rookie class on that side of the ball

I agree if given the choice between those two

Holy hell. Not only a potential signing, but a potential cut? Besides Morgan Burnett, who else is a candidate to be cut for cap savings?

Here are the Steelers players who'd be at least $1M in cap savings if cut, and who have even a snowball's chance of being cut:

Morgan Burnett: 3,633,332
Brimble: 2,025,000
Bostic: 1,800,000
Burns: 1,757,862

I know we talk a bunch of shit around here. But.

Anybody want to hazard a guess, good and bad, what Dupree would look like as an ILB on this defense? Is there any way that you can imagine it being a positive? Best-case scenario? Larry Timmons?

Would he be better than Bostic?

If the answer is yes, do it

Assuming Houston gets his OLB spot

Use him like Shazier????

He's the closest LB as far as the athleticism and speed that they have.....

Not the craziest idea, one of the reasons they let Fort go in FA???

Better question...Is he better than Vince. That’s the guy that needs replaced first...then Bostic.
Try DuPree inside. Why not...what can it hurt? It either works or it doesn’t.

Why I find this unlikely, Dupree and Chickillo could have been let free/cut yet they're eating up over 11M this season. All that could have been avoided if they signed Houston before Tuesday.
