I think there is plenty of value at the TE position, I say cut ties with Spaeth.

NFL/The Combine Notebook: Only QBs, TEs not on Steelers' menu
Sunday, February 28, 2010

Pitt tight end Dorin Dickerson runs the 40-yard dash Saturday at the scouting combine in Indianapolis.
INDIANAPOLIS -- To be sure, there are age and depth issues on the defensive line and at linebacker. And the horrid performance during a five-game losing streak that cost the Steelers a playoff spot screams for a cornerback who can make plays.

But coach Mike Tomlin said he is not ready to concede the Steelers have more issues to address on defense than offense. He did say, however, there are two positions on offense that aren't getting much attention from the Steelers at the NFL Scouting Combine.

"We've all agreed that we have a level of interest in all positions, other than quarterback and tight end," Tomlin said Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium. "Other than those two positions, we're open to anything. It's tough to say at this point that defense is a priority more than offense, but there's good depth on defense in this draft."

Tomlin said the Steelers would not rule out drafting a running back or wide receiver with the 18th overall pick if a player they had rated high was available.

"No question," he said. "We will look at all areas."

I'd take a rookie TE over Spaeth. There are some good ones.
