typical idiotic steeler move. why not at least keep him until draft day ? maybe throw him in as part of a draft trade ? 2021 - 2022 Offseason Moves  - Page 15 2913999526
what do they gain by releasing him now compared to waiting another month ? whats the damn hurry ?

i would be ok with bolton and dickerson being our first 2 picks. 2021 - 2022 Offseason Moves  - Page 15 2893009358

Feeling a draft

If the Steelers are going to fill the holes they have created in free agency, they are going to have to hit a couple of home runs in the draft. To that end, here are a few notes.

• Gifted but oft-injured Alabama center and former Florida State Seminole Landon Dickerson says that he has been in touch with the Steelers during the pre-draft process. The Crimson Tide pro day is Tuesday. It’ll be interesting to see how much Dickerson can do coming off a knee injury in the SEC Championship game. Dickerson is believed to have the talent and the tenacity to be the next Maurkice Pouncey. He may be the best interior offensive line prospect in the draft. But he suffered multiple knee and ankle injuries during his time in Tuscaloosa and Tallahassee.

• Steelers inside linebacker coach Jerry Olsavsky helped lead the workout for Missouri inside linebacker Nick Bolton.

Watch: Here's some video of former #Mizzou LB Nick Bolton's workout with Steelers ILB coach Jerry Olsavsky at Pro Day. pic.twitter.com/JNad5QkHbW

— Andrew Kauffman (@AndrewABC17) March 22, 2021

You can see extended highlights here from ABC 17 in Columbia. He also spoke with the media after the workout and said he had a Zoom call with the Steelers prior to the pro day.

He’s viewed as potentially a late first- or early second-round pick.

• And, via Steelers Wire, head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert attended Florida State’s pro day Monday. That could signal an interest in cornerback Asante Samuel Jr.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are saving themselves salary cap space by restructuring tight end Eric Ebron's contract, according to ESPN's Brooke Pryor.

The Steelers and Ebron have reworked their deal, freeing up $3.9 million in cap space, according to Pryor. Tribune-Review's Joe Rutter suggests the move will convert $5 of Ebron's $6 million salary into a signing bonus and added four voidable years.

Can't they just dock his pay for every dropped pass? That would cut another $2 million off his contract. 2021 - 2022 Offseason Moves  - Page 15 3798349058

At least!

Actually we'd probably be under the cap for the next 3 years if we did that. 2021 - 2022 Offseason Moves  - Page 15 1797695198

Seriously I don't know why we didn't let this dude walk. IMO McDonald with all of his injuries was a better all around TE. Factor in dropped passes and Ebron is pedestrian.

Dropped passes make me want to rip my skin off. But Ebron has a way about him that makes him effective in the passing game (when he does catch the ball). He understands how to run his routes to maximize his separation and make the most of a play. And I'll cut him a bit of a break since he had the benefit of having Johnson as a teammate who graciously prevented Ebron from leading the team in drops. 2021 - 2022 Offseason Moves  - Page 15 1797695198

It's just that we haven't had a dependable TE since Heath retired. I think that is one thing that has been hurting our passing game.

Some news on Conner. In summary: little to no market for him.

Sounds like it's in his best interest to sit it out until he gets an "injury" call. 2 weeks after he signs he'll be hurt too.

Think I"m going to be right on that one, and he will sign back up with Pittsburgh.

Who wants a RB that plays 1.5 games and then sits with injuries for 2 or 3 games?

Offer him a 1 year minimum contract have him back on the cheap end of story. He knows the system hopefully we can get 10 games out of him before he breaks...

its no secret that coaches often have an affinity towards players they are familiar with. connor had a good deal of success at Pitt in Canadas system. the same with Mcfarland. Canada had a front row seat to witness the mess that was randy fichtner. he probably like the rest of us stood on the sidelines shaking his head and saying WTF ? , who didnt see that play coming ? while his injury history is frustrating, Connor is still the same talent they spent a 3rd round pick on. if they can keep him for cheap, i can see it happening. even if they spend a high draft pick on a back , they still have samuels to boot to make room on the roster. Connor may not be the bellcow back, but he is worth having in a rotation, unlike samuels.

Coward signed with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent on May 11, 2017.[1] He was waived on September 2, 2017 and was signed to the practice squad the next day.[2][3] He was promoted to the active roster on December 9, 2017,[4] and made his regular-season debut in the Week 14 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.[5]

Although Coward was a defensive end during his rookie year, head coach Matt Nagy announced that Coward would be moved to offensive line for the 2018 season.[5] He was an exclusive-rights free agent after the year, but returned to the Bears after being tendered a contract.[6]

In 2019, Coward started ten games at right guard after Kyle Long suffered a season-ending injury. He became an ERFA for the second time at season's end before re-signing on April 17, 2020.[7]

I don't think he's worth the 2nd round pick. We need that pick for other needs.

Plus this....

I never thought he was a good NFL prospect. Way too many INT's in college surrounded by good players. Well he's still not a good pick. He's got some talent and I don't think he's a bad kid, but I don't think he's got what it takes to be a starting NFL QB.

Quote :
ESPN’s Kimberley A. Martin said on “Get Up!” Monday morning that she spoke with three NFL general managers about the trade market for Darnold, and they all said they would not be willing to give up more than a third-round pick. One of the reasons for that is Darnold could turn out to be a one-year rental. In order to keep him for two seasons without re-signing him, a team would have to pick up the nearly $19 million fifth-year option on Darnold’s rookie contract.

if they didnt bring back Ben then Darnold made sense. now darnold would likely not get any game time , so how do you evaluate if he is worth paying more for the 5th year option ?

nobody in their right mind would give up a 2nd for him. you might as well use that 2nd and draft Trask.
plus darnold carries a 9.8 million cap hit this year. where does that money come from ?

I just don't think he's good, either. My opinion, Mason Rudolph is better than him, and its not real close.

Ray Fittipaldo with his 3rd Mock draft. I copied the text on the Etienne pick but just the actual pick for the others.

Ray Fittipaldo's third seven-round Steelers mock draft

1. (No. 24 overall) RB Travis Etienne, Clemson (5-10, 215)
2. (No. 55 overall) C Creed Humphrey, Oklahoma (6-5, 312)
3. (No. 88) OT James Hudson, Cincinnati (6-4, 302)
4a. (No. 129) CB Kary Vincent, LSU (5-10, 185)
4b. (No. 141) OLB Janarius Robinson, Florida State (6-5, 263)
6. (No. 217) ILB K.J. Britt, Auburn (6-0, 239)
7a. (No. 247) WR Dazz Newsome, North Carolina (5-11, 190)
7b. (No. 256) TE Tony Poljan, Virginia (6-7, 265)


He wrote this about Etienne:

Quote :
It has become increasingly clear throughout the pre-draft process that if the Steelers want one of the top three backs in this draft, they’re going to have to take one with their first pick. Etienne, Najee Harris of Alabama and Javonte Williams of North Carolina aren’t slam-dunk first-round picks, but all three almost assuredly will be gone by the time the Steelers make their second-round pick. It’s not like last year, when a back like Cam Akers or J.K. Dobbins would be available at that point in the draft. There is a drop-off in talent after the top three this year. Etienne is the fastest back in the draft. He ran a 4.41 40-yard dash at Clemson’s pro day. Steelers GM Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin were present to watch him work out. He’s the type of difference-maker the Steelers need to improve their running game. He has the ability to break off long runs. He’s a three-down back with improved hands, and he has the size to learn how to become a better pass protector. Now the Steelers just have to cross their fingers and hope he’s still on the board when they pick.

ESPN’s Kimberley A.

One of the reasons for that is Darnold could turn out to be a one-year rental. In order to keep him for two seasons without re-signing him, a team would have to pick up the nearly $19 million fifth-year option on Darnold’s rookie contract.

if they didnt bring back Ben then Darnold made sense.  now darnold would likely not get any game time , so how do you evaluate if he is worth paying more for the 5th year option ?

nobody in their right mind would give up a 2nd for him. you might as well use that 2nd and draft Trask.
plus darnold carries a 9.8 million cap hit this year. where does that money come from ?
I just don't think he's good, either.  My opinion, Mason Rudolph is better than him, and its not real close.

im willing to give young players the benefit of the doubt (depending on the cost) if they are on a team full of suck.ryan tannenhill was considered a bust in miami , now he looks like a top 10 QB.

All good and fine, but Darnold wasn't on a sucky team in college. And he still threw a shit-ton of INT's. I know the Jets are a dumpster fire, but Darnold has never been anywhere near as good as his hype.
