Marcus Gilbert
Jordan Berry
Stevan Ridley
Coty Sensabaugh
Anthony Chickillo
Justin Hunter

Those listed are 6 names I'm seeing. I'd also like to add Darrius Heyward-Bey, Daniel McCullers, Tyler Matakevich.

Chris Boswell, Xavier Grimble and Morgan Burnett are on the fence for me. Who are your candidates Furians?

I think they should give Hilton an extension as well. It is wrong that he would have to play for ERFA money ($645K)

I would add Dangerfield, Feiler, Canaday and Banner to your list. ERFA are cheap and easily cut later for no penalty.

Perhaps Malik Golden. not sure. I think Grimble gets a tender.

You know I used to have a h@rd on for Coty but I thought he was serviceable for Burns.

I guess Bud gets a pass for what he gets paid and is worth it?

Your list are free agents, hard to release them. Sensabaugh did a very serviceable job when he started. If he’s gone, you better replace him with something better than Artie Burns.

Marcus Gilbert is the big money cut. Nearly $5 million saved by cutting him, and he’s hardly played the last two seasons.

I'd keep Sensabaugh for depth, with the intention of getting someone to upgrade that position and play ahead of him.

A secondary with Haden, a second higher-priced CB, Burnett and Davis with Hilton and Sensabaugh as depth isn't too shabby. I think upgrading that second corner spot makes our safeties look a lot better. And hey, if Edmunds develops into something of value, even better.

And then launch Artie Burns into the sun.

While I doubt this is what will happen here is my stab at being Steelers GM

UFAs
Bye Bye - Bell, Ridley, DHB, Hunter, Chick
Unique situations
- Shazier - Sorry maybe keep him in some capacity but not on a player’s salary hitting the cap
- Berry - Definitely has to have competition in camp. If we find someone better (like we HAD but let get away this year) then he is gone. Heavy Sigh…. Wile was 10th in net while Berry was 26th and they had similar numbers inside the 20. The biggest difference is that Berry was hot & cold….. he could boot it 60 on one series (often into the EZ) and then from deep in our territory barely get it 30 yards down the field. I’d be much happier if we could find some who we consistently know what they will give us without as much up & down
Keep - Jesse James, Fort, Coty
Maybe
- Eli, Alualu, McCullers, Behre - Depends on what else we have and cost
- Foster - Depends on his other offers but likely gone

RFAs
- Grimble - I’d like to think we can do better but he does have some skills. I’d likey give a low tender
- Finney - Keep

ERFAs that matter
Keep - Feiler, Hilton, Canaday
Maybe - Dangerfield - Depends on what else we have and cost

Changes for those still on the roster
Dump ‘Em - Bostic, Burns, Burnett
Maybe
- Gilbert - Just not sure he is worth the $$ if he can’t get on the field
- Bud - With a decent restructure I’d keep him one more year but you can’t pay him $9 million
- Bos - Like Berry you must give him competition in camp. You also have to try to figure out what is wrong…tape, tape and more tape of the missed kicks.

Yeah Perch, I missed that part. :lol:

Bostic is someone that didn't stand out too much one way or another. Is he upgradeable? Sure. Do the Steelers dismiss him after one season?

Here is a list of FA's
