  1. New buzz that Trask might be a target of the Steelers. Could definitely just be nonsense because 1 article said "Trask just seems like a Colbert guy", but I have seen this in a number of different places now. I am a fan, and would be happy with him in the 2nd, but I'm not sure he falls that far. We'll see, and the Steelers true interest is TBD. At this point, with the draft, almost nothing would shock me. Any of the options below seem almost equally possible to me in the early rounds: Take BPA (OT, LB, RB, WR, etc) Trade up for QB Trade back for picks (jk, this would sho
  2. They will most likely 5th year option Minkah to avoid increasing hit this year. Watt should get extended because they can structure to reduce his hit this year. Hopefully they don't 5th year option Edmunds. They just signed Hassenauer to a restricted FA deal, but I don't think that eliminates them from resigning Finney. Dotson and DeCastro will be starting guards (hopefully) and some combo of Feiler, Banner, Chuks, and Rookie will be OTs/Cs. They could restructure/extend the following players to make cap space: DeCastro - $15 mil cap hit, $8.75 mil base salary. Could be extend
  3. Maybe. If Allen Robinson and Golladay get franchise tagged, I think the Steelers let Juju walk because he'll get a big contract, netting the Steelers a 3rd round compensatory pick. They didn't draft Claypool and Diontae for no reason. I think it's more likely they want to resign Dupree than resign Juju. Which is unfortunate, because I think that Juju is a great player to build around. He's still so young.
  4. So something like ~$3 mil per year in dead cap through 2025. That's not bad at all. I was mainly worried about all of the $$ going into 2022, and then not being able to make moves next offseason, without Ben on the team. This is better than I expected, I didn't honestly think Ben would take a cut to stay. I thought by "cut" he just meant restructure. This could make it realistically affordable to keep Juju or Dupree if they make other cap moves (Extend DeCastro, sign Watt, Extend Haden or Nelson [or cut], extend Ebron).
  5. There's also news leaking of the Steelers trying to resign Dupree. Idk where all the cap money will come from, but if they can resign Dupree, Juju, Alualu, and one of Sutton/Hilton, sign Banner and/or Feiler, and draft a RB semi-early. They could have a team as good as last years. Which, when healthy, was very very good. And, their Offensive Coordinator can't really be worse than Fichtner was. That said, they don't have the money for that so I'd expect Juju and Dupree to be gone, most likely. The reason I'm so sure? I have both Dupree and Juju jerseys...
  6. With all our needs over the next 2 seasons taking a RB in the 1st seems crazy to me. The only exception being the Front Office thinks that a star RB will bring home the Super Bowl in 2021, even though the Steelers have the toughest schedule in the NFL. The 2nd or 3rd (or preferably later) seems a lot more palatable.
  7. https://www.espn.com/blog/pittsburgh-steelers/post/_/id/32550/pittsburgh-steelers-free-agency-overview-retooling-offense-on-a-budget Solid article outlining all the Steelers positions' situations, and where draft picks/free agents are needed.
  8. I saw a recent mock that had the Steelers taking Trask... in the 3rd round. I think it would be really shocking if he falls out of the 2nd, and I'd be just fine with the Steelers taking him there as long as they're confident in their offensive line. A draft that falls 1. OT, 2. Trask, 3. C would pretty much be a necessity (unless they . He's not immobile, but he's much better when less pressure is applied (like every QB).
  9. Mock's are getting ridiculous just to get clicks. An official mock from NFL.com has the Steelers taking Justin Fields, at Pick 24. If he falls out of the top 5 I'll be surprised, and if he falls out of the top 12 I'll be shocked. That said, if he falls to 18 or lower we should definitely make a move for him, imo. It's been proven that Justins can succeed in the NFL.
  10. It seemed to get worse as the season went along with him often overthrowing players by 2-3 yards, which is the "safe" throw, so that the defenders don't have a shot at it. But at least he's not underthrowing everything like Brees, it's not a case of his arm can't do it, it's a case of his accuracy being off or a case of him not wanting to take a risk and let a WR go for it. My hope is that with a more complete offseason, and another year out from the surgery, he can work with the WRs a lot this offseason to dial in that deep ball and work on their hands. Also, I think that at least 50%,
  11. I think that Alualu should be the priority. I don't think other teams will be coming in hard to sign him, and that we could get him on a decent deal for 2-3 years. He was an all-star at run stuffing and getting pressure up the middle before his injury. When he went out, our run defense completely fell apart, and after he came back he was good, but clearly wasn't 100%. I think that Hilton or Sutton will probably get snatched up by another team, so the team should focus on Sutton who is more versatile, even though watching Hilton blitz is very enjoyable (he does make coverage mistakes more
  12. At this point, with the Ben talk, I'm just worried they try to shoehorn a specific position at 24, instead of taking BPA. I just keep having Edmunds and Artie Burns flashbacks. They weren't really the BPA, but they fit a position of need. And taking Edmunds 2 rounds prior to when we needed to still hurts. Based on comparing multiple big boards it looks like we should be able to get one of the top 20 players in the draft (not that everyone agrees on a top 20), because some teams will reach for positions of need. We should be able to get one of: QBs - Lawrence, Wilson, Fields, Lance (def a
  13. Ben and Art Rooney II met today. According to Ben's agent it went well and he'll be back next season under a readjusted contract (whether that means a cut or extension with voided years remains to be seen). This is definitely not a guarantee that he'll be back, especially since it was Ben's side that released it, but it does make it seem more likely. We'll see what happens, I just hope that this doesn't mean that we pass on a QB just because Ben is back. This isn't the same situation as GB and Aaron Rodgers. Ben is not still in his prime and MVP caliber (at least he hasn't looked that wa
  14. There have been a number of articles recently tying the Steelers to a QB in the 1st round, either Trey Lance, or more likely, Mac Jones. The detractors from Trey Lance mention his poor passing in his lone 2020 game, but also his exceptional athleticism. The only disappointing aspects in Mac Jones' game are that he's not an electric runner, and that he played with exceptional talent. I'm not completely sold on Mac Jones, but I do find the arguments against him to be somewhat ridiculous. Trevor Lawrence and Joe Burrow had some amazing WRs and RBs, and really good offensive lines, but they
  15. We can tender Dwayne Haskins in 2022. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2927668-dwayne-haskins-rumors-former-wft-qb-visits-steelers-after-meeting-with-panthers This way, if he plays amazing we can put a 1st round tender on him for $2 mil, and if another team signs him we get a 1st. $2 mil is relatively inexpensive for a backup too, so even if he's not amazing, we could resign him if he's not actively hurting the team, because Rudolph will probably get more than $2 mil in FA.
