    You should read Adam Schefters article. I dont' always agree with him, but it's brilliant.

      I don't think we should overpay in FA, cause thats a waste. I'd rather pick someone else up in the draft who we can develop into a good player than some 30 year old overpaid vet who is in the downslide of his career. But, getting a guy for a reasonable price who can help out is never a bad thing. I'm a little dissapointed that we didn't pick up TBC, but its better we don't overpay him to do nothing. I think we're going to be going heavy on the LB's in this draft as we could use at least a few.

      On a side note, do we get a conditional pick for Porter this year or next? I'm gonna assume next because isn't it based off production somewhat?

        Its a Compensation pick and we'll get it next year. We'll probably get a 3rd rounder for him.

        Thanks to The Dynasty for the sig

          I'm not sure we get a pick. He wasn't lost to UFA. He was cut. So I don't know the rules on that very well, so I'm wondering if we'd even get a compensation pick (Which would be a 3rd.. it's based on Contract, players history/#'s)

            I hope we get something for him. Seems like kind of a waste to let him go for nothing.

                First, we don't get jack for Porter. We dumped him, so we aren't going to get any compensation. Secondly, I also feel quite disapointed when the steelers don't sign anybody in FA, but the way the market is being blown out of proportion, I think we'd be better off saving all our cap space and signing Hampton, Faneca and Polamalu to long extensions.

                We can always upgrade through the draft.

                  yeah we need to save cap space

                        I doubt it. They have 10 picks as it is, They'll net Sepulveda or Podlesh, or evena UDFA.

                            I don't know why I like Sepulveda better. I think like I mentioned before it's the Rugby Techniques and the fact he was a linebacker.
