Pittsburgh traded pick No. 155 to Arizona for pick No. 195 and CB Bryant McFadden, who returns to the Steelers. #nfldraft

This addresses some of their CB problems.

this move brings tears to my eyes, the '05 Steelers are being reunited... So glad to see him back, are DB's were left out to dry when he went to AZ Steelers

I really didn't think he did all that well in AZ--I hope they haven't ruined him:helmet:

He didn't have the 5 million dollar impact they wanted, but he played descent. I have a feeling his #'s will be back to normal once he straps on the black & gold.

We didn't let him go he just wanted too much money

I think part of the problem he had at AZ was how long he had to cover guys. AZ only had 19 sacks last year. He doesnt have to be stay in coverage as long in Pitt as he did in AZ that will help him.

and the best part about it is he's a proven vet WHO KNOWS LEBEAU'S SCHEME, as opposed to drafting a corner in the 1st or 2nd who would have to learn the scheme for at least a full season before getting serious playing time. I LOVE THIS MOVE!

Outstanding to have Mcfadden back!! We've refortified our pass rush to make our secondary even more effective. Our defense came up big baby!!!!!!!!

This is a great move and immediately sures up our secondary in a big way. I hated to see McFadden go in the first place, and it just goes to show that sometimes players just do better in our system; like we've seen time and time again when FA's leave.

This will allow Burnett, Lewis, and Gay to fight for the extra DB spots while we have 2 capable starters. I was worried during this draft and wondering why we weren't addressing the Secondary but after this one they must have known this trade was going to happen so DB suddenly was not as high a priority as it was going in.

He didn't, you're right, but he did do well in Pitts scheme which is what I care about the most. I'm not saying he solves all our problems in the secondary, but he certainly upgrades our backfield, like now, and gives us time to look for young corners to develop in the future. Gay was a huge dissapointment, adding BMac back into the picture and sliding Gay 4 nickle cover, quite simply I like.

All that for the cost of a single solitary pick in the 5th round, Brilliant!

He wanted to leave, we offered him the same type of money for 4 years he went to the Cards for the same money for 2 years, so did we extend his offer or is this a 1 year deal?personally i'm glad he's back:tt02: we stay healthy it's on for number seven this year because with the WO talent in the the AFCN now we needed someone like him...

while I love that he is back, it is **** that we have had to use 2 draft picks to get back 2 players we let go for free last year....

hopefully he slots right back in and it is like 08/9 all over again. :tt02:

Believe it or not, Ike Taylor plays at a higher level when he has healthy compeitition on the other side of the field. So bringing B-mac back will improve the entire secondary.

He instantly becomes our best corner with regard to good hands and ball hawking.

Thats the wrong way to look at it. Could we have drafted better more capable players with the picks we traded for them?

Byron Leftwich > 7th rounder

Bryan McFadden > any CB left in the 5th round

Those were great trades and we are far better off than if we had kept those picks and brought in 2 training camp fodder players.

My thoughts exactly. This move is outstanding. Allows our two rookies from last year to continue to grow while perhaps letting Gay play in the nickel where he is much better. Kudos to the FO for this one.:yellowthumb:

WELCOME BACK !!:tt02::tt02:

Gotta wonder if this deal wasn't already in the making the way they drafted . All of a sudden ya announce the trade to get him and a little while later they announced an extension... Combine that all together and then a strange draft starts making a lot better sense :2cents:

I'm so glad McFadden is back. I took a peek at AZ board and was surprised everyone hated him there. Not to many people there realize he he a good player but not a fit for their system.

we got 2 picks in return. we got a 6th rounder from arizona on top of mcfadden in exchange for our 2nd 5th round pick, and we got a compensatory pick in the 7th for leftwich, so technically we didn't give up anything

You really hit the nail on the head. In many cases, it's not about the player, it's about the system he is playing in.

B-Mac wasn't a good fit in their system.

He didn't do well in Arizona because he had to learn a new playbook, and well, their secondary sucked anyway
