View Full Version : Steelers 2009 "Lost FAs"

With SF signing Marvel Smith, the Titans picking up Nate, and the Cards grabbing McFadden, I wonder if that is enough "lost," so that we can qualify for a "#3" in the 2010 NFL Draft, assuming we sign no other team's FAs?

knowing the league
I very much doubt it
they might allow us to get another 5th round and maybe a 6 th round also

Well this will be Smith's 10th year, so probably he will qualify for the rule that wont allow us to get more than a 5th, Nate was a third reciever so he wont get us too much and McFadden came out some and Gay played according to LeBeau, so he wont get us as much as he should either. I bet we get three picks, one in 5th and 2 in the sixth.

Oh and one more thing, I think Smith's contract isnt huge, but filled with incentives, so that will hurt how much we get for him as well.

If the three perform, well, it could enhance any "comp" return.
