WR should be the next fill in the blank priority.

As always, finding some coordinators who know how to utilize the talent on the field.

I agree an OL FA would help but we need a TE more than a WR.

I'd rather go after a younger TE through the draft.

What I meant was we don't have the cap room to go after an o-lineman or a TE really.

I'd rather go after a younger TE through the draft.

We're probably gonna have to and we haven't hit pay dirt since Heath in the first round, so.....

I think adding Canada will help Rudolph a lot. We do not have the money to add a QB who would be better than what we have now. But I am on board with firing Fitchner. I think he gets 1 more year with Canada helping out planning games and if nothing changes Canada takes over the next year.

wow..i must say im shocked foster retired...he just gave up 1.575 million free dollars. affraid

perhaps the steelers made some kind of back room deal to get him to retire to save that dead cap money....maybe a bag full of tax free cash ? a promise of a high paying job in the organization ?

Steelers working to create cap room, restructure Vance McDonald

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Vance McDonald has reportedly restructured his deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

NFL Insider Adam Caplan reported Monday that the tight end will have a new deal that converts his $5.5 million base salary into a signing bonus.

The move clears cap space for the squad.

Eagles overpaid for Hargrave. He was a decent interior DL but making him the highest paid for a 2 down guy... seems like a big money mistake to me.

the guy is young and was getting better every year. who says he is a two down player ? he can get to the qb on passing downs.

Are we mortgaging the future in the hopes that he will bounce back this year?

That is the impression I'm getting. One last, big push to win Ben another ring. Hopefully, the NFL and the referees agree.

Gerry Dulac at Post Gazette is reporting they've shaved $35million off the salary cap through the restructures and quoted a "team source" as saying: “more to come over the next couple days”

Steelers up to something? 2020-2021 Offseason Moves - Page 2 3135543967

However, if the free agents are patient, a big bump in the salary cap in 2021 will really pay off for them. The 2020 salary cap is going to be $198 million but some estimate the extra regular-season game and expanded playoffs could mean a number closer to $240 million.
https://steelerswire.usatoday.com/2020/03/15/pittsburgh-steelers-cba-nf-2021-free-agents/

maybe the Steelers are setting themselves up for the 2021 draft / off season. 2020-2021 Offseason Moves - Page 2 2087824411

according to the talking heads on steelers.com it looks like feiller will be plugged in to left guard and bj finney will be gone leaving them without a backup center.they also believe a RB may be the pick in the 2nd... 2020-2021 Offseason Moves - Page 2 2829330259

Derek Watt to join brother T.J. Watt with Steelers after four seasons as Chargers fullback, per report


Two-thirds of the Watt brothers will play for the Steelers in 2020.

On Tuesday, the Steelers came to terms with former Chargers fullback Derek Watt, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Watt is the younger brother of Texans pass rusher J.J. Watt and Steelers pass rusher T.J. Watt, who is expected to land a new deal with the Steelers this offseason. The youngest Watt can officially sign with the Steelers when the league's new year opens at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

Like his brothers, Watt attended the University of Wisconsin, averaging 5.0 yards per carry during his senior season. He also spent three seasons in Madison blocking for Melvin Gordon, who later became his teammate with the Chargers.

A sixth round pick in the 2016 draft, Watt helped Gordon become one of the NFL's best running backs during their four seasons together with the Chargers. After rushing for just 641 yards as a rookie (the season before Watt joined the Chargers), Gordon averaged nearly 1,000 rushing yards per season from 2016-17. Gordon also saw his yards per carry average climb from 3.5 to 4.1 yards with Watt as his teammate.
