    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

    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

    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.
