    If the Steelers are not able to sign Nate Washington...

    http://walterfootball.com/freeagents2009WR.php

    Then who might some of you want to bring in here as a free agent 3rd receiver looking at some of the receivers available in this link that I posted above. Aside from guys the Steelers can't afford like a TJ Houshz or Antonio Bryant who on that list is most intriguing and would be a good fit for the Steelers offense next season. The 3 names I am looking at that would be affordable and I believe good fits would be Amani Toomer who is a perfect slot man 3rd receiver, and while he is a bit up there in age at 34 he has been in the league for a very longtime and has won a Super Bowl and I believe he would fit in very well and come at a decent price should the Steelers take a look at him. The other two guys I wouldnt mind looking at that are deep threats more so then Toomer is much like Nate Washington is would be Hank Baskett from the Eagles and Brandon Lloyd from the Bears.

    toomer, lloyd and baskett....they would effectively make us a worse team. we wont bring anyone in, if nate walks sweed gets a confidence boost along with a promotion, he gets thrown in there and tears **** up. we will draft a WR on the first day, but we are not looking for a veteren presence on the sideline we are looking for a guy to contribute

    That might very well be true that they do bump Sweed up as the 3rd receiver should Nate Washington leave. But it still doesnt change the fact that they lack depth at this position and are going to need to bring in a veteran guy to fill either the 3rd or 4th receiver spot should Nate leave. There is nobody now on the roster after Limas Sweed who is capable of being a 4th wideout on this team. I am not in favor of drafting a receiver on the first day like you said. I think this Steelers team the way it currently sits right now has much more bigger needs to address on day one of the draft then wide receiver. The o-line of course is the most important area to address, followed by getting younger on the defensive line, and then cornerback. You just cant expect the Steelers to draft a receiver even if it is in the 1st or 2nd round and for them to come in and make an immediate impact it just doesnt happen most of the time. It's why like I stated bringing somebody in from that list of names I just mentioned is going to be something I feel the Steelers and Kevin Colbert are going to need to do at some point this off-season should they not resign Nate Washington.

    i dont consider CB a pressing need, i think mcfadden gets resigned and if not im comfortable with gay in there. i just dont want an old WR like toomer. Oline will be addressed no doubt but who knows whats gonna happen there. we gotta see if they are gonna resign kemo, starks and smith. WR becomes a day one need if nate walks

    We could just go after TO lol

    I disagree that it becomes a day one need because the o-line and getting younger on the defensive line are much bigger priorities then getting a wideout on the first day. I dont believe they are going to sign Marvel Smith nor do they want too with all his recent injury problems, and re-signing Max Starks is going to be tough as well since his stock has gone up from playing so well at left tackle this season while filling in. Dont forget as well while Hartwig did a nice job this season at the center position he is still only a stop gap for this past season and probably next season as well. The Steelers and Kevin Colbert need to seriously start looking at drafting a franchise left tackle and a especially a franchise center either this season in the draft or most definitely next season. Those needs are most definitely more important for this upcoming draft then addressing the wideout position on day one of the draft.

    Sweed is the guy who moves up. Other then Bryant, all the other mentioned WR's would be a step down from Washington.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Reggie Williams, Jaguars 6'4. Thats good height Ben will be pleased. Michael Clayton, Buccaneers. He has suffered playing for a team that has tried to be a run team, and not to mention a team that cant get him the ball. QB and HC issues do not make for a good passing team. He would shine in pittsburgh. both guys 26 year young and ready for the prime time. You will be surprised at how better these guys would be with Ben getting them the ball.

    Troyisabeast_43, whats with wanting these old burn outs in their mid 30's. Why not the Seahawk to....lol

    Hank Baskett isnt a burnout in his mid 30's he is 26 years old. He has played very well on the Eagles with McNabb when he has gotten the opportunity to start and make plays in that offense over the last 2 years. He has very good speed and is a legit down the field threat.

    hes a joke, he has a handful of big plays and they are all fly routes down the left side of the field. hes kind of slow and really just gets by on his long stride and broken coverages. id be pissed if we signed him and let nate walk especially since one of the teams that are gonna look at him are the eagles....they would just win in every way then, id rather be a man short than have baskett
