The Browns have released QB Josh McCown and CB Tramon Williams. https://twitter.com/FieldYates/status/8 ... 1722235905


In an unrelated move the stains released McGown. I think the Steelers ought to look at getting him into the fold. JMO

We are comfortable with the players from our practice squad. Familiarity breeds comfort.
Yes. We do what we do.

I suppose not Brasi. It was just me making a statement about the Steelers doing business as usual. Nothing exciting. Here are some players I neglected to list.

1/28/2017: Re-signed S Jordan Dangerfield to a one-year, $540,000 contract. Re-signed WR Cobi Hamilton to a one-year, $540,000 contract.

2/1/2017: Re-signed LS Greg Warren to a one-year, $1.08 million contract.

2/2/2017: Re-signed K Chris Boswell to a one-year, $615,000 contract.

Agreed 1000%

He is still serviceable.

Damn, what a bargain for Boswell. Dude should easily be a top-10 paid kicker, but looks like he may have to wait a year. I wonder if they try to work-out a long-term deal with him.

Championship.
Call me when they sign Ingram or Berry, or both.

#7 has 2 maybe 3 years left barring a major injury. Go balls out. It took 20 YEARS from Bradshaw to Ben.
