    Linebacker Tully Banta-Cain visited with the Rams yesterday and may be a goner.

    “They need a pass-rusher, that’s no secret,” said agent James Sims. “And (coach Jim) Haslett’s a hell of a defensive mind. He’d really be able to utilize Tully’s versatility to play in 4-3 and the 3-4. Plus, it’s a team that will contend.”

    Banta-Cain has also heard from the Steelers, Ravens, 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Dolphins, Browns, Jets and Giants.

    “It’s totally new to him,” Sims said. “I don’t think he’s engaging in it in the sense of taking too many trips. He wants to hone in on the best opportunity and match that with the financial package.”

    Eh, from what I've heard of TBC, he's an ***. And even Pats fans don't think he's that good.

    I am interested by Peek and the 2 Vikings guys. I think they have the potential to be solid LBs in a system like the Steelers. Plus, who thought James Farrior would turn out as well as he did?

    i did. he was a very high 1st round draft pick by the jets and i believe led the league in tackles a year or 2 before coming over to pittsburgh. he was always a top tackler for the jets.

    i was suprised he was straight up cut and even more suprised he initially signed with the steelers for pennies. i'd hate to waste money on kunta kinte errr.... bunta cain

    Anyway, I thought I just heard recently that Peek was signed by someone? If so, scratch him off the list, but there's still those 2 Vikings guys. I think they're worth a look.

    Other than the top 3 names (none of which we could afford to pay) I don't see anybody that would be a better alternative to James Harrison/Anthony Spencer. Briggs is looking for 7+ million per year! Not in Pittsburgh!
