    Can the Steelers keep Brown, Wallace, and Sanders together?

    Wallace is a restricted free agent this year.
    Brown and Sanders will be restricted after the 2012 season.

    It's unlikely the team can get either Brown or Sanders signed before this offseason is over and you won't be able to franchise them both next year. Brownwill be able to command more than Sanders most likely so you have to wonder if Sanders might be the one that wants to go elsewhere to get more playing time and maybe more money.

    If the Steelers win this season they will want to stay plus if the team wants to keep them they will find away

    is this where you have to decide if either brown or wallace is the true ace for the decade and trade the other for two top picks. before they crash and burn?? or do you sign both and sign sanders and never look back.

    It's unlikely that they'll be able to keep all 3. That would be too many dollars tied up into that position. I expect to see another WR drafted in the 4th-ish round this year.

    I'm afraid you're right. My opinions on this years draft don't seem to be popular on this site, but I believe we need to focus this draft on O-linemen, and replacements on our old, slow, D. Let's fix the big problems first, then worry about the rest later.

    The pats always seem to get 1st round picks for semi-old players..

    They play in the super bowl and have 2 1sts and a couple 2nds. you cant get old like that. especially when you pick like that every year almost.

    This would be a year where the pats would trade Ike Taylor for a 1st rounder and blame the cap for the trade reason..

    Sanders, Brown will for sure be back but I have a feeling Wallace won't.. If someone dangled a 1st rounder it would be hard for this team not to take it..

    I would certainly agree with that. You can't address every issue every year so you fix the most glaring first and work your way down. Guard is a glaring issue, as is NT right now, and middle linebacker opposite Timmons. If they were to spend their first 3 picks on those positions I'd be happy as all get out.
