Re: Steelers 2014 Roster Changes

Rumor is they're meeting with Maurice Jones-Drew today.

Re: Steelers 2014 Roster Changes

I think this may be his second interview which makes me think there is more of a chance than what I originally thought. It would be great to get him but I am not sure if the Steelers have enough cap space to pay him. I will be very suprised if he signes qith them.

Re: Steelers 2014 Roster Changes

Supposedly if they restructured/lengthened the right contract they could make enough room to get near Drew's 5mil contract (last year's) with their present 2.3mil cap space... Lawrence Timmons' perhaps?

I think he's maybe looking to get out for a ring before he has to hang it up.

I would be surprised as well if he ends up in Pittsburgh... but if they were able to get him and keep Cotchery as well, they're in pretty good shape pre-draft offensively.

Jericho is gonzo.

Carolina just signed him.

Re: Steelers 2014 Roster Changes

Yup, two years 5mil... they should've made some cap room.

Why don't they just go after Chad Johnson, Terrell Owens and Randy Moss? (that's a joke)

In other news the team was informed they won't lose a draft pick that would've stemmed from Tomlin's on-the-field-of-play "dance" again the Ravens last Thanksgiving.

Re: Steelers 2014 Roster Changes

I'm sorry but Jones Drew does nothing to help the issues that the Steelers have. The Mitchell and Thomas signings are a step in the right direction but adding a back who has A LOT of mileage on him is not the right move.

Re: Steelers 2014 Roster Changes

Steelers have one back under contract. Bell.

They are not bringing back Felix Jones. Dywer signed with AZ.

Stephens-Howling, is a FE, been in the league 5 years... his career rushing yardage is 670 in the 58 games he's dressed for. He's returning off ACL surgery.

I doubt it would be a block-buster deal.

I don't agree Trask. He would be a great backup for Bell and way better than what they had last season. I wouldn't want him as a starter but I think it would be a perfect fit for him. I also don't think it would be a bad idea to get Harrison either. Also, not as a starter but insurance for injury and giving Worilds a breather once in a while.
The Steelers are going to have to make some sort of move within the next few days. They are way to thin at LB, RB, and WR now. Hope they have something in the works.
