IKE TAYLOR!

I know it's been beaten to death but before anybody else is signed this team needs to secure Ike.

IF and I don't want to upset the football gods, but if Ike doesn't come back it wouldn't surprise me to see them make a run at Jonathan Joseph or Chris Carr.

I just can't wrap my brain around a reason to bring back Colon. The only way that happens is if they decide they don't want Flozell back for cap reasons. Otherwise Colon should be gone.

Nnamdi is a pipe dream we all had, LOL.
Joseph I'd be happy with.
Gallery, eh, as a backup maybe but our line isn't all that bad at this point. Although you can't have too much depth.
Rodgers, could be a good move, DB help is always welcome.
Gaither, interesting. He's not had the best rep in Baltimore among the fans lately because of his attitude and his injury.

I think we'd all be happy with a guy like Reggie Bush in our offense. He's reported to want about 15 touches per game. He's a situational player; good returner and great out of the backfield in the passing game. He'll want too much money though and I just think the Steelers would pay it.

gallery would certainly start for us, at least at RG hopefully at LG

gaither and joseph becoming traitors would make me happy...we never really get former bengals/browns/ravens that are worth a damn

reggie bush isnt a FA (yet?) but i would LOVE him. he would be heroic in pittsburgh, and i dont think hes gonna want "too much" because hes either making 11 million this year from that second overall deal or hes taking a monster paycut and getting market value

ive always liked colon...i would like to see him play at RG this year next to flo, but hes a good player and can play RT and RG and we have a lot of uncertainty at both spots.

i cant stand scott or essex and im ready to throw in the towel on hills

Starks-Kemo(ugh)-Pouncey(<3)-Colon-Flo

would be ideal

Starks-Kemo-Pouncey-Foster-Flo

is more likely

i would hope gilbert could win that RG spot if he has to, id like to see what he has out of the gates

What's your beef with Ramon Foster at RG? Dude was solid all year, and played very well between Flozell and Pouncey. I'm really thinking there is no real need for a starting RG, Foster is more than capable of pulling it off. Now I wouldn't mind seeing a battle between him and Colon, that could be good.

I wouldn't mind seeing Deangelo Hall in a strong locker room like ours with the pass rush that we have. He should be cheaper than the other top tier corners because he got huge deals already, he'd probably play for us for free lol.

Adam Schefter just tweeted that Holmes agreed to a new 5 yr. deal with the Jets..so that pipe dream that some of us had is gone. Not that we need him at this point but I know some Steeler fans were hoping beyond all hope that he might come back.

I couldnt agree more! I like Colon as a guard ALOT, but they dont seem to want to make that move. Im not counting on Willie to be back, though i hope he is! Gallery was a bust at T but is a VERY servicable G and would easily win the RG and/or maybe beat out Chris-K at LG. Gaither would push for a RG job aswell.

Bush would be A-mazing but, sorry i just dont see it for a multitude of reasons. A.Cromartie would be interesting. I think he is a Ike Taylor clone (body type) but he isnt the worlds most fearless tackler. On the plus side, he may come on the cheap and would EASILY be our starting CB opp. Ike.

I would add Buckholter (after a lengthy physical). When he is healthy, he is a fine back and good out of the backfield as well... say "see-ya" to Mewelde. Or Jason Snelling, i think that dude is highly under-rated and would be a good addition to or backfield.

You can forget the pipe dream of Reggie Bush as well, he was traded to the Dolphins this morning. We all knew it wasn't going to happen but it was fun to think about.

Jared Gaither now could be a real option for this team.

I haven't been opposed to Cromartie, but I liked Joseph more. Now that he is off the market, I wouldn't mind seeing the team pursue Cromartie, the man on a mission to repopulate the earth. That said, I wouldn't mind the team going after a dude like Carlos Rodgers, either, so long as the money was right.

Also, I know there still time and free agents left but I thought we'd have got someone by now..it's all been in-house players...maybe the FO has been waiting to clear up all of our in-house players including draftees first. I still say we need a CB, O-lineman and a possible RB

It would be awesome if we could get a guy like Richard Marshall(CB) at a discounted rate for being on the best team in the NFL. Maybe he would go for it, maybe not, worth a shot.

Kemo isnt gone. He's on the PUP list with swelling in his knee. Whenever that gets squared away he can be taken off the list and participate in practice.

Nah that's the Reserve PUP list. There is the Active PUP list and the Reserve PUP list. Players can only be put on the active PUP list before they participate in training camp. Once on the active PUP list, they can be removed at anytime during Training camp.

At the end of the Preseason, players that are on the active PUP list that are still weeks away from recovery can be put on the Reserve PUP list. Those on the Reserve PUP list cannot play until week six but do not count against the active roster. You have to be on the active PUP list to be eligible for the reserve PUP.

That's how the rules have been, unless the new CBA changed it in any way, I'm pretty sure the same rules apply.
