    I like him in the Burgh. My wet dream would be to sign him and then draft Lattimore.

    Thursday, March 14, 2013Steelers keep moving forward
    With Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert in Morgantown for the West Virginia pro day - they've been quite busy this offseason visiting pro days - the Steelers were still moving forward in free agency.

    That included re-signing long snapper Greg Warren and having running back Beanie Wells in to meet with team doctors.

    The signing of Warren is a good one. Solid long snappers are hard to find and the team didn't want to go into 2013 having an open tryout for that position.

    As for Wells, he would seem to be a similar back to both Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer. And the Steelers were just kicking his tires a little bit - a smart move for a back who has the knee issues that Wells has had.

    Something tells me that if the Steelers were so inclined to make a move to sign Wells, it might come at the expense of Dwyer or Redman.

    Tender offers can be pulled and players who have signed their tenders can be released. It wouldn't make much sense to have three power backs on the roster.

    I learned something new.

    So Redman or Dwyer can be cut before the season starts, but would their be a cap impact?

    if there is no cap impact, I guarantee one of them is cut

    No cap issue, it's all or nothing for Redman.

    Unless it's changed though, I don't believe Dwyer can be cut with no penalty. Once you sign, they are on the hook for it on the cap even if they don't pay him.

    what's the difference? they were both restricted, and both tendered qualifying offers.
