Any that we've heard of?

I know our boys are always quiet n the FA market, but damn one day I;d like to tune in and see a much needed player added!

We all know rookies don't start for the Steelers, so the draft is boring anymore for me!

This is typical for the Steelers during free agency..we'll probably sign a few low key role players as time goes on...but nothing that will grab the headlines.They are firm believers in bringing up there own talent..and it's hard to argue with the result.

Yeah we all should be used to hardly any activity in FA. As far as the draft goes, day 1 since Tomlin has been here has always been a surprise. I'm looking forward to April, one other thing to think about.....the way we conduct business in the offseason has always kept us competitive. Nothing will change that.....:cope:

Yeah, I think the NFL Draft is when you will see the Steelers make a big move. They hardly ever make any noise in free agency.

I'm sure we will take someone of note this year. Or maybe make a good trade for Lefty...

When the 2nd save of FA's hit the market, the 2nd tier guys that's when you see the Steelers make their moves most of the time. Plus after the draft there is also another wave of players cut that become available.

i wasn't so optimistic about many FA's even any OL...

My first wish was to re-sign Mcfaddy...

Next I thought we may look at DL: Shawn Cody or Igor... but not yet

Yeah I want Mcfaddy too but...I know I will get **** for this but, I think we will be fine without him. Tomlin has these DB's playing so well that I think we can get someone if we dont already have him to play good enough that we wont miss a beat.

Shaun Cody? Ew. He is an undertackle in a 4-3 and thats it. He is a backup at best, isn't a great run stuffer, and only a sub-par pass rusher. You can find better on most team's practice squads.

The Steelers will probably wait as usual and pick up a quality back up. Maybe CB or D-line, but we won't go after and big names.:nono:

I agree with you on Mcfad. I am good with Gay stepping in at CB. He played good last year when he had the chance.

I see that Khalif Barnes an offensive tackle from Jacksonville is still a FA. I think he could be a good pick up.
