    Steelers Should Pass on Brady

    Steelers Should Pass on Brady

    A couple of months back, the Steelers brought Kyle Brady in for an interview with an eye on bringing him in as the team's No. 3/backup blocking tight end. It seemed like a perfect fit--an inexpensive veteran with the reputation as a great blocker.

    But nothing happened at the time, and according to the South Coast Today, that might be a good thing.

    The paper reported that Brady's blocking did not live up to its reputation. He frequently missed assignments, and after he received flak about his mistakes, he left the team and had to be convinced to come back.

    The Steelers could determine by watching film whether Brady's blocking is still good enough to help a team, but if he bailed on the team in the middle of the season, that's a black mark that is hard to erase. And with few decent tight ends left in free agency, it seems like the Steelers might end up relying on Jon Dekker (who apparently has added some solid muscle) to be the team's No. 3 tight end.

    Because so much of what they post up is hearsay and most of the time it's their articles are written with some twisted opinion that is so far from the facts it's not even funny. I can't stand PFT; for ever 1 article they write that is actually semi on the mark there are 50 that just flat out suck IMO.

    I don't know if Brady will ever have a future here but Im sure the team would have signed him had they thought he was really able to help them at this juncture.
