These are some lineman that may not cost us much if we have the room!

OL
Stephon Heyer OT UFA 6-6" 330 lbs 5yrs Old team: Raiders Starting experience with 2 teams
Eric Winston OT Released 6-7" 302 lbs 6yrs Old team: Texans Would start right away!
Kraig Urbik OG RFA 6-5" 329 lbs 3yrs Old team: Bills Has improved greatly IMO since he left...
Jake Scott OG UFA 6-5" 292 lbs 8yrs Old team: Titans Would look great in Black & Gold
Eric Steinbach OG Released 6-6" 295 lbs 9yrs Old team: Browns Solid G that wants to win!
Mike Pollak OG UFA 6-3" 301 lbs 4yrs Old team: Colts Young and probably doesn't want to go thru another season like the Colts just had...
Kory Lichtensteiger OG RFA 6-2" 292 lbs 3yrs Old team: Redskins Liked him coming out of college
Deuce Lutui OG UFA 6-4" 338 lbs 6yrs Old team: Cardinals Starter on Dessert Steelers....

CB
Adam Jones CB UFA 5-10" 188 lbs 5yrs Old team: Bengals I know, CRAZY! But he kept clean last season in Cincy of all places and maybe he can play across from Ike...
Tracy Porter CB UFA 5-11" 186 lbs 4yrs Old team: Saints Pipedream... He'll cost too much
Marcus Trufant CB Released 5-11" 197 lbs 9 lbs Old team: Seahawks Depends on his speed...


FB
Tony Fiammetta FB Released 6-0" 242 lbs 3 yrs Old team: Cowboys Young, hard worker... Did a good job when healthy
Owen Schmitt FB UFA 6-2" 245 lbs 4yrs Old team: Eagles Absolutely would love to have him here!!!

QB
Shaun Hill QB UFA 6-3" 220 lbs 10yrs Old team: Lions Say what you want but I love this guy!!!
Kevin O'Connell QB UFA 6-5" 225 lbs 4yrs Old team: NY Jets Want to know everything the Jets and Patriots have up their sleeves?

Jake Scott, Marcus Trufant... ill be shocked if we sign any FA that werent on the squad last year... if so means we lost Wallace.

I'm almost expecting that as of now... but we can dream right?

You can never rule anyone out but the one I would say for sure is PacMan. Can't see us going within a stripper pole's distance of him.

Also, remember that we typically do a really good job in those second and third waves of FA where often guys will slip.

Winston & Scott would be Sweet.Eric Steinbach OG if his back is healed would be a great addition even as a swingman.
FB Owen Schmitt would be just the right amount of crazy on Offense.
Bring in Evan Mathis before he signs with Ravens and also SD MArcus McNeil

I'd take anyone listed on OL except Steinbach. 9 years in the trenches is a long damn time. Winston is worth the coin IMO when it comes to protecting our QB. One solid big *** sandwich eater.

Yup. And we don't have it.

Some words that are paired together don't normally work:

Free agent + Cheap

Permanent + potential

we will be lucky to get Cotchery back

They will all be cheaper if noone signs them then we get the steelers price

Owen would fix all of our Oline problems. Watch tsizzle come through whichever inept lineman we put out there and then have the Runaway Beertruck blow him up. Now that Arians is where he should be - not in Pittsburgh, maybe we can have a power running game again. Schmitt is the only piece we need, and I bet he wouldn't cost too much.

Winston just signed with the Chiefs. If you look, the chiefs are surprisingly doing some things well in a quiet way. I like them to win the AFC west next year.

He's drawing interest. I wish we stop dicking around and sign him.

As of a week ago the Jets had around 7 million cap space available to them. I would hope that if it came down to the Jets or Steelers that Cotchery would come back and play in Pittsburgh. I would rather have him than Tolbert at this point, and since that seems to be not happening then they need to get on the ball and get Cotchery back.

No one else is either. We people like Gay and others dont get a lot of attention, it drives down their price.

Let's talk about Ryan Clark. Why can't we upgrade over him? His coverage isn't that great and I'm tired of him throwing our secondary in disarray when he can't play in Denver. AND WE HAVE ANOTHER GAME AT DENVER THIS COMING SEASON!
