Lightbulb Clark Haggans

I was wondering with Clark Haggans is going to be 31, and his contract is up, will he be resigned? Woodley has played good when given chances, so will Haggans be released. If he is released then that would mean either we sign a backup vet, or draft another olb.

I think he might get resigned to a short contract 2 maybe 3 years, with no real big chances the steelers have to take. He did not get injured like Porter, and has been playing pretty well. He plays next year, and get injured you have Woodley who would have a season and some under his belt, to take his place. Then Haggans could get cut, next year.

any thoughts

He has said he wants to resign but I doubt he will. They drafted Woodley to replace him and they won't want to pay Haggans much to be the backup.

Yes, he has said that he wants to re-sign with the Steelers, so who knows, depending on how much he wants to end his career with the Steelers, he may re-sign for next to nothing. Personally, I would only want him re-signed if he came cheaply, as he wouldn't be a bad back-up to have. We also have Arnold Harrison and Andre Frazier as other young OLB's, so at the end of the day, when it comes down to it, the Steelers may send him packing to give these young guys an opportunity. Also, it doesn't help Haggans case when we currently have his replacement on the roster in LaMarr Woodley.

I think someone will overpay him. (think NE)

We'll think he's too expensive for his skill-set especially in a veteran backup role. The fact that he's only starting now because of Woodley's experience and the whole unit is playing well.

It doesn't sound too well considering we still have 4-5 OLBs on the roster.

James Harrison, WOLB
Andre Frazier, WOLB
LaMarr Woodley, SOLB
Arnold Harrison, SOLB ( Personally I think he'd be an awesome Mack. He lacks pass rushing skills but is solid in coverage and has the strength to shed blocks efficiently.)

Then if we draft a rookie or sign one.

I'm looking at Titus Brown as SOLB depth and then a guy early in 2009 like..

Phil Merling of Clemson (6'5 282lbs 4.72)
George Selvie, South Florida
Jermaine Cunningham, Florida
Philip Merling, Clemson
Brian Orakpo, Texas
Matt Shaughnessy, Wisconsin
Jamal Westerman, Rutgers
Ricky Sapp, Clemson
Greg Hardy, Mississippi
Auston English, Oklahoma
Brandon Graham, Michigan
Eric Norwood, South Carolina
Everette Brown, Florida State
Maurice Evans, Penn State
Jeremy Geathers, UNLV
