    Maybe, maybe not. I could easily see the Steelers FO concluding that their lack of a pass rush was more the result of injuries to Harrison and an aberration of a bad year by Woodley than indicating a need for more pass rushers. I disagree, but I could see them coming to that conclusion.

    Of course, if Harrison becomes a cap casualty then it would be a big time need. Even if they keep him, we need his eventual replacement who I do not feel is currently on our roster.

    Its all just for the sake of discussion anyway we all know the steelers rarely use FA. Let alone sign a big name.
    What I mean is, quality pass rushers are a big deal. Ignoring the fact that the Steelers never play a big role in FA, another team that does will pay loads more than the Steelers would consider.

    I'll try to keep it realistic...

    1. Beanie Wells RB - Injury history will make him an affordable back. Steelers situation will make us an attractive option for him. Play style is "Steeler Football". The Cards have a team option to keep him. With cap space becomming an issue, and cheaper options on the roster, I think there is a chance he's cut.
    (I'd prefer Shonn Greene or Deangelo Williams, but I'm taking the Steelers/Affordable route)

    2. Laron Landry S - the guy has flaws, and isn't a great deep safety. but when it comes to playing in the box, he is an impact player. if Troy can't stay healthy, Landry could be the future Strong.
    (I'd prefer Deshon Goldson)

    3. Delanie Walker TE - Criminally underrated because he plays with Davis. Would be a #1 on a lot of teams
    (I'd prefer Jared Cook)
    Banana Fett !?!? Where???
