And they signed that guard from the Chargers.
I remember when the Steelers drafted DeCastro. They were sorely in need of offensive linemen but he was expected to be long gone by the time they drafted. They were expected to take Donta Hightower but when DeCastro was available, they drafted him.DeCastro stated in an interview that he had to have ankle surgery again and that last year's surgery was unsuccessful. When asked if he was going to retire he said he would see how he felt but "had no problem" walking away.
Trai Turner is a 5 time Pro Bowler but is a few years removed from that status. He is only 28 and while I didn't see the number probably came at a bargain since he missed time last year with a goin injury that he says he is 100% recovered from.
I think I read that with the release of DeCastro and the salary savings they were sitting near $15M in total cap space.
The dog would have to wear special cleats and pads. Also he wouldn’t be effective in Cleveland where the fans throw dog biscuits and bones on the field. I also think that biting is a 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and automatic ejection from the game.For those bloggers out there that suggested Richard Sherman might be a good fit for Mike Tomlin, turns out they were right!
Sherm spent the night in jail on a domestic charge. He wrecked his car while drunk, then was later the subject of a 911 call at his in-laws house.
Radio station in Seattle got the audio of the call. Wife said he was drunk, trying to break in, and threatening to hang himself.
When the cops arrived, they used their Social Worker sensitivity training to try to talk him off the ledge. But when they said he was under arrest he started to take off. They turned the K-9 dog loose and it quickly ran him down.
Clearly Richard no longer has the speed to be an effective shut-down corner. On the bright side, Jon Gruden and Urban Meyer both offered a contract to the dog, who is a UFA. Reports from the North Shore say Kevin Colbert is working on a ten year extension for Big Ben, to provide some "cap flexibility" with the hopes of signing the dog. Defensive coordinator Keith Butler said the dog checks all the boxes, he'd be a shut-down corner the likes the Black and Gold haven't seen since Rod Woodson.
