Classic Steelers signing. Not a superstar but a damn solid player. Plays the deep ball well, physical, a lot to like.

Hope not.

Burns is bona fide tire fire.

Hopefully Coty stays as depth and Burns becomes an afterthought.

B2B preferred signing. Good pick up. Solid starter and the contract is not outrageous.

FWIW Walter football has him listed as the 2nd best CB in FA.

Did he get drafted to the Steelers in one of the mocks the year he came out?

Perch and I picked him for the Steelers in the Podcast Draft, IIRC.

He’s a good fit. Not going to get beat much downfield, good ball skills. He’s not an absolute shutdown on short routes underneath, but he’s good tackle after the catch guy.

From that bastion of analytics, PFF:
in 2018:
-20 forced incompletions (T-2nd, CB)
-4 interceptions (T-3rd)
-53.1% reception allowed % (T-8th)
-82.8 passer rating against (24th)
-2018 Grades: 72.1 overall, 71.2 coverage (both 28th)

Just went to a Chiefs forum. They said, " meh player, horrible ball skills, glad we didnt pay that amount". Im assuming thats just them downplaying his abilities because hes not a Chief anymore?

Color me skeptical given the Chiefs might have been one of the worst overall defenses in football last year.
That said, maybe we found another Haden in the rough?

4 INTs is more than any CB on our team right?

He's an average+ player, maybe a little above that, based on what I've seen him do over the past few years. Doesn't get beat deep a lot. Maybe he can grow under Austin and Bradley. Let's hope.

Anyone know the G $?

Nelson was playing as the #1... harder job, but he still acquitted himself pretty well. He was hardly the biggest problem they had.

Shrine game and Senior Bowl that year.... two players you and I were high on were Steven Nelson and David Johnson.

Considering those in the know viewed his value in the $8M to $13M per year range, I'd say we got a pretty good deal at $8.5M/per.

I like it.

Now a better ILB would be nice. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if the plan is to stay put and then make a run at Devin White, by moving up some in the 1st round.

Guilty. He is decent, better than what Steeler had Haden aside. They still need depth and Burns likely isn't it. He is very similar to Brandon Carr but a bit better in coverage not as good a tackler or in run support.

One of my old Navy buddies who is a Chiefs fan just texted me that, "Your team is getting a good one. Sorry to see him go."

Agree with all here who says he's an upgrade on all Steeler CB's not named Haden. Good news for a change as well as what they did for Shaz today.

No matter what, we got a solid upgrade.

Coming from a pessimist, I like.
