  1. Eli Rogers is at the Steeler's facility today.
  2. Number one thing I would do is get Washington on the field now the Rudolph is the man.
  3. I'm not quite ready to cut Moncreif yet. Maybe the broken finger is causing issues but I would keep him for now. I would rather see Switzer cut and Eli signed since it looks like Johnson may be the punt returner going forward and Switzer brings very little to the table IMO.
  4. Hodges was signed to the practice squad and Jayrone Elliot was signed to the 53. Looks like the Steelers are only going to carry two QBs on the least for now.
  5. Giants claimed Skipper off waivers. I think the Steelers made a very poor decision waiving him.
  6. Right now for the 2020 draft the Steelers have their #1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and Jacksonville's 5th. Their 3rd round pick in 2020 was part of the the Devin Bush trade. Hawkins was traded for a 6th round pick in the 2019 draft.
  7. With Elliot's contract signed can the Cowboys sign both Prescott and Cooper or does one of them not get a new deal now ? With Jeff Goff signing a 4 yr extension with $110M guaranteed I think Prescott is not getting a new deal this season.
  8. 50M Guaranteed. If you thought Gurley's contract was nuts this is too.
  9. Johnny Horton was added to the practice squad. I expect he will be moved to the 53 after a player is placed on IR.
  10. Ola or more likely Layne could be put on IR freeing up a spot for Horton.
  11.

  12. IMO if Gilbert or Skipper are not on the 53 then neither will make it through waivers. I think the team keeps them both by either only keeping 8 OL or 2 QBs or put Layne on the IR and go with 5 CBs.
  13. Ola is not eligible for the PUP list since he practiced and played during training camp/pre-season.
  14. Local Dallas media reported at the time that the problem was the amount of guaranteed money not the total value of the contract. from "Todd Gurley signed a 4 year, $57,500,000 contract with the Los Angeles Rams, including a $21,000,000 signing bonus, $45,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $14,375,000. In 2019, Gurley will earn a base salary of $5,000,000, while carrying a cap hit of $9,200,000 and a dead cap value of $34,850,000."
  15. From Mike Silver of on Friday - “Brown, according to witnesses, typically glances at the screens of several tablets and his smart phone during meetings, distracting himself by engaging in activities which include perusing his bank accounts and ‘liking’ photos on Instagram.”
  16. I think he's a very unhappy camper because of the contract Michael Thomas got and what the Falcons say they are willing to pay Julio Jones.
  18. Here's a good take IMO from Steelers Depot on players the Steelers are interested in on day 2 -
  19. My guess at how many of each position get drafted in round two - CB 5 S 5 Edge 5 DL 3 C 2 G 2 T 3 TE 2 RB 3 QB 2 In round 3 here's some players that could/should be still on the board at positions the Steelers have strong interest in WR -- Hardman, Ridley, Mc Laurin, Hardman, JJ Arcega-Whteside, Boykin, Hall CB -- Bunting, Love, Oruwariye, Long, Lonnie Johnson S -- Hooker LB -- Okereke, Pratt
  20. I don't think this will free up much if any cap space. His cap for 2019 is currently 23.2M, the extension add $68M more so that's 89M to be allocated over only 3 years so I don't know if the 23.2M cap hit for this year can be reduced.
  21. The Dallas paper guess a $28M yearly average with $60M guaranteed. That may be optimistic given what QB's like Cousins, Stafford, and Garoppolo signed for. Russell Wilson's upcoming deal will affect this too since WIlson is looking to pass what Aaron Rodger got. Stephen Jones said Dak's contract needs to be team friendly too. It will be interesting to see what happens.
  22. Lee was suspended for the final four games on 2018 violating the substance abuse policy. He will be in his fourth year in 2019 and his salary is only 1.8M but if his fifth year option (for 2020) is not picked up by the acquiring team he will be a UFA at the end of the 2019 season. The deadline to pickup the fifth year option is the first week of May 2019. A team can rescind the fifth year option up until the first day of the 2020 NFL year. The bigger issue I think is Lee's reputation of being immature and the repeated problems he had on the Jets. See below -
  23. It looks like Julio Jones is getting an extension that will average $20M a year on a 4 or 5 year deal. I wonder how AB and OBJ will react to that.
