    This is just the type of player we usually sign when it comes to lineman. Guys that can play more than 1 position, maybe aren't the top tier guys on their previous teams, but guys that have skills, good attitudes, willing to learn and be team players. This helped our OL alot and frees us up to make some different choices on draft day. We still need to take an OL in the draft just to keep some fresh blood coming into the group and then let them all fight it out in camp.

    I like the signing. Welcome to the Steeelrs!!! He also seems to really like Tomlin. Actually it seems as though anyone that knows Tomlin is all about him.

    Mahan signed a 5 year deal worth just under 3.5 a year. He said he turned down more money elsewhere and stated the following reasons for his decision. The oppurtunity to start at center for a franchise rich in tradition and success at that position. His comfort level with Coach Tomlin and for the tradition, success and historic stability of the Steelers.


    If you don’t stand behind our troops.....Please feel free to stand in front of them!!!

    Gotta love that. Turning down higher offers just because he wants to be with the black and gold!!!

    Have you even watched Spencer play? I watched him many times this year and evertytime I saw him play he was always doing something positive. His 26.5 tackles is an impressive. Is there questions about him playing OLB since he was a DE in college? Well yes there are but thats no different then the times we drafted Jason Gildon, Joey Porter and Clark Haggans who were former DE turned OLB.

    If he can't play OLB then he still can play DE in a 4-3 and the Steelers will be using the 4-3 more in the future with Mike Tomlin as HC.

    Dude, your posts are 90% negative. I could probably find fans of some of our division rivals who would say more positive things about our team than you do! Why do people find what I said so funny? Probably some truth in there somewhere.

    hey now boys....

    lets just chill for a minute, without attacking eachother and calling them Bengals fans shall we? lol, nobody likes a bame caller. i do think this was a smart decision. he's young, and a good player, and he is versatile. i like it.

    I wasn't attacking him but just asking him a question on why he doesn't like Anthony Spencer.
