once again, all the shittiest teams spending all their money early


Um, no. 3 of the 4 teams who were in the conference championships have already made moves:

Pats get Bennett
Rams get Weddle
Chiefs get Matheu

Packers had a down year but they aren’t a bottom feeder. Colts are a playoff winning team and in better position than the Steelers and are as we speak active in FA.

Stop trying to frame this as the time shitty teams make moves to absolve what the Steelers do. We tend to do jack shit to make this team better (Morgan Burnett anyone?), then go 9-6-1 and miss the playoffs.

Pats traded for Bennett...they have to pay him but didn’t need to get in a bidding war.
Weddle was a street FA. Rams made him a fair offer, but again no bidding war.
Chiefs overpaid for Honey Badger.
Pack has nearly 40 mil in cap space...Colts over 100 mil (how is that possible?).
Steelers have about 16 mil, not sure if that includes rookie pool. All the cuts, moves, restructures that we’re going to give them all this cap money to throw around hasn’t happened.
I’m not trying to defend them sitting on their hands, but this is what they do...what they always do.
I don’t know why you guys are pissed and surprised...


If I may add to this:

Rams signed Weddle to replace Demarcus Joyner. That's a downgrade.
The Chiefs defense was (statistically) the worst to make the post season in decades. They also just cut their top pass rusher and might lose their other one. They haven't improved.
The Packers roster is utter trash outside of Rodgers and Adams. Remember they were one of the big winners in FA last year after they signed Wilkerson and Graham.
Calling my shot now - the Colts regress next year and miss the playoffs.

Signed with the Cardinals for 4 years, 36M. With the stupid money being thrown around, that's actually not bad.

You’re kidding right? Alexander and Mosley set the LB market with monster contracts.

Us? We hope to make good of our draft with 4 picks in the top 100. Can’t wait!

Omg I didn’t see that. This actually makes me sick to my stomach. What a motherfucking bargain! It’s ok, I get to go home to a sick, pregnant wife and my 2 year old who’s also sick. It’s ok, at least I get to see us sign a couple FA...oh, that’s right, I’m a Steeler fan.

Steelers are involved in the receiver market. They've inquired on several, including Tyrell Williams. Could settle on second-tier player market depending on price, but it wouldn't surprise if they signed a new playmaker for Ben Roethlisberger.

Darron Lee from the Jets (first round pick in 2016 from Ohio State) will now be available. I trade one of our 6ths for him today. I really wanted Hicks, but I could take a flyer on Lee. Not much salary involved. If he works out fine, if not, no big loss. He had 3 interceptions in 12 games last year and averaged 7 tackles a game.

WR John Brown to Bills

Buffalo intends to sign former Ravens' WR John Brown to a three-year, $27 million deal as @PSchrags and @caplannfl reported.

I also think the word is out on the Steelers. We are cheap and offer shit contracts (that’s what I’ve read online so it must be true haha).

But really, with all of the bullshit that has transpired, not sure anyone wants to come here and play for Tomlin. We still have some very good players on this team, but Tomlin’s reputation is now widely known, league wide.


I think that almost every contract given out thus far is bullshit and Im glad the Steelers are sitting out.

Tomlin kept those turds Brown and Bell in line as long as he could. I dont care how many twtiter likes they get, you cant tell me they weren’t hated by the guys in the trenches who are the knes that matter.

Ask Heyward and Pouncey what they think of Tomlin.

They wont have a problem getting quality veterN leaders, just not these overpaid assholes.

One thing the Steelers NEVER do is make an outsider the highest paid player at a position group unless he is head and shoulders above his peers.

CJ Mosely at this point may not be much better than Vince Williams.


The numbers have been a little much, we agree on that. But they need to do something, because what they have been doing isn’t working.

I understand what Pabst said about a team like, for example, the Chiefs. They had one of the worst defenses in the league and were a drive from the Super Bowl.

They know their strengths and their weaknesses. Chiefs sign Honey Badger does make that defense a little better, or not the same from a few guys leaving. HOWEVER, they are active because they see their window. Do we see our window?

That said, color me surprised that we are being mentioned in the Tyrell sweepstakes. He’d be a good get, and if still draft a young speedster in round 2 or 3.

Plot twist! LB Anthony Barr has decided to agree to terms to remain with the #Vikings, sources say. He will not be a member of the #Jets after all.

AB should've been traded after the FB Live fiasco from the locker room.

I can't believe he stayed in that locker room, and was REWARDED with a new contract.

That episode ALONE reveals the weakness inherent in the current management/ownership structure.

Man, AB & Bell going to two bottom feeders with bottom-tier QBs.

But, hey, they got their guaranteed money!

I guess a fake twitter account is spreading the Bell to Ravens deal.

Ravens made the playoffs last season. I don’t disagree with you, but then what are we?

While the #Jets made a best and final offer to Le’Veon Bell, the #Ravens are still in it, as well, I’m told. And Bell has indicated to some friends around the league how much he likes Baltimore. It seems like Ravens vs. Jets for Bell at the end.

If Bell goes to Blt, can he play Lb, S, Wr, Qb, Dl to? Let his fat ass go there. Doesnt worry me in the least.

I see bell getting big carries and is going to be mr dump off with jackson as qb. He'll get a lot of attention in their offense and rack up lots of YAC with RB screens making up half their offense. Designed scrambles for jackson being the other half.

Look what Ravens lost since then. Even taking into account losing AB, they got destroyed this offseason.
