He could challenge for a starting spot, especially with Center and RG up for grabs this year.

I say the Steelers sign this guy and Pork Chop Womack. It would give some experience mixed in with the young Olineman we already have.

Taking him or someone else before the draft would really help with the experience factor and give us a few more options for the draft. Even if we did sign him, I'd still want a top notch OL on day 1, you can't ignore the OL on draft day, ever or you'll pay for it sooner or later.

I heard Mahan wants to stay in TB, they're negotiating hard to get something done in TB.

We're not exactly batting a thousand in FA so far this year. I'd imagine they'll probably get him back if they want him that bad.

When have we ever been players in FA?

I will be happy if we can get to the Mendoza Line

The Steelers tonight made significant progress on a contract with free agent offensive lineman Sean Mahan and the sides hope to have a deal in place by tomorrow.

Mahan, a starter the past three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, would become the first free agent to sign with the Steelers this year.

He'd give us some veteran depth with experience at OL and really put some significant pressure on Okobi and Simmons to step up if either of them has aspirations on playing Center for us.

Mahan is versatile which makes him a good fit for us. Assuming the price is right this will help us.

i hope we get him, the more comp in training camp the better.....and then in the second round we can draft blalock and groom him for a year and then let him take over at right guard in 08

Dude I want Simmons cut if the Steelers sign this guy. Hey Kendall just hasn't been the same since his illness and tearing his ACL. As for Okobi, he has a high cap number and I hope Marvin Phillip beats him out and Okobi is cut.

I think it's probably a safe assumption that 1 of those atleast won't be on the team if this guy is signed. He wants to start so if we do sign him that tells me they think he's got a real good chance at winning a starting spot which makes atleast 1 of the other 3 expendable. Since Okobi's cap number is high and he can only play center he's on the ropes I would think.

Well if this guy is signed I think both Okobi and Simmons are on the ropes. The Steelers have alot of options at OG. There is Kemoeatu and Willie Colon can play OG to.

Mahan left the teams South Side practice facility at approximately 5 p.m. He reached the airport and was set to board a plane back to Tampa Bay when he received a call from the Steelers and talks resumed.

Mahan was offered contracts by Cleveland and Seattle, but his most serious suitors appear to be Tampa Bay and the Steelers. Mahan said earlier in the day that his decision wont be based solely on money. I plan on being a starter, he said, so Im not going to go someplace and not play.

Kemoeatu is a guy I really want to see this camp. He's tough and has a bad attitude on the field. He showed some promise in the little time he got last year and he good be good for us.

I'm with you on Kemoeatu and I hope he develops. I say let him and Willie Colon battle for the RG spot. Both players have that nasty/mean streak in them needed to play OL in the NFL.

Well thats fine Koopa. I hope Chuk Wun proves me wrong.:bluelol: Just saying if he doesn't win the starting centers spot then he will be cut with high cap number.
