PostSubject: Upcoming FAs   Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:05 am

So read an article this morning about the upcoming FAs and the list has some great prospects (all though probably too expensive for the Steelers):

Of course #1 is the Steelers' very own Le'Veon Bell - a key factor in the Steelers offense continuing to grow and being competitive moving forward

Others include (I've only listed ones I'd like to see in Black and Gold):
DeSean Jackson (WR)
Eric Berry (S)
Kenny Britt (WR) - I like him 2nd of all the WRs on the list and think he'd fit in best with our current roster. But that's the problem. Our current roster of WRs is a great combination of age and youth.
Dont'A Hightower (ILB) - I believe he would be a bigger threat on our defense with the other guys on the roster.
Trumaine Johnson (CB)
Chandler Jones (OLB)
Dontari Poe (NT) - big guy for the middle of the line, would really help our depth
Terrelle Pryor (WR) - I actually like the threat he creates
Demarcus Ware (LB) -

Desean Jackson will want too much money, Britt is too inconsistent, and Pryor doesn't much care for the Steelers. I'd love to see Dontari Poe but the Chiefs won't be letting him go, and I think they'll definitely keep Eric Berry as well.

Chandler Jones would be nice, added depth, and a guy that has pass rushing skills.

I agree Jackson will want too much money. Is Britt inconsistent due to the scheme and QB he's playing under? I think with a better QB and more infused system he could shine and shine well. Pryor may 'hate' the Steelers now, but if the Steelers continue to move through the playoffs and in to the Super Bowl, I'm sure that would change his mind (at least a little) unless winning isn't in his plans.

I don't think the Chiefs can afford Poe and Berry. I haven't checked their salary cap numbers. However, I'd take either one of those players (but in reality I don't think either one would be affordable for the Steelers).
