Steelers got a corner for jesse james money. Granted, 1 less year.

I'd trade James for solid CB any day.

Now that's a healthy perspective.

The secondary is shaping up to be at least competent. Biggest hole in the roster for 2019 right now is WR then ILB. Interested to see what else happens in FA.

I can't believe we haven't re-signed Fort. Surely he won't command much $?

Typical Steeler “we do what we do” signing. Solid player...not a lot of sizzle. It’s a step forward and one has to like it. Hopefully it’s just the beginning.

No chance of happening, and it's not the best fit, but I love Golden Tate's game. Him and Juju on the field? That's two tough SOBs. Add a speedy deep threat to stretch the field along with that and we'd have a damn good group.

But this is a great draft for WRs, deep too. We can get a player in the mid rounds who can make an immediate impact.

As long as he is kept far away from Tomlin or any other defensive coach this could be a good signing.

The thing I really didn't like about Nelson. 5'10, 30" arms. No height or length so if he allows anyone by him they're gone. Not that great in man. Gets grabby and was the 2nd most penalized DB coming out of college when he was drafted in the 3rd round. I hope he 'measures up' once here. I'll be rooting for him.

I really like this signing. I think Nelson has his best football ahead of him. I feel a lot better about CB.

Now, we all know safety is an issue but they believe in Davis and Edmunds. That means we have to fix ILB and OLB.

I'd also like to grab a TE or WR.

Why would he want to come back? Totally unappreciated here. They signed and played a guy off the couch over him, and I doubt he's forgotten.

That's a good point I hadn't thought of.

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?

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


His stats may improve significantly as the #2 CB on our defense - he won't have the pressure of being a #1

Meanwhile, wtf are the chiefs doing, had a shitty defense last year, lost top corner in free agency, cut justin houston, will prob cut eric berry after signing honey badger, and now traded dee ford to 9ers for a 2nd round pick.

Hill will come but Mahomes will come down the line in a year or two if he continues to play like this.

If they get Brown give him #84 and start calling him AB. Fuck that assclown in Oakland.
