Many here think he should be cut, but does he have trade value? Could the steelers get a rb like stewart in carolina or someone of value?

Don't see anyone trading for a guy that has landed on IR 3 times. If some team does want him then they most likely would wait until, hopefully, the Steelers release the bum.

I would agree a smart team would do their homework and know that there is a great chance we would drop him.

If some gm traded for him he should be beaten.

You should rename the thread so people don't get their hopes up like I did. Evil or Very Mad

Unless he traded for a used open can of beer, some chewed peanuts and a year old hot dog the Steelers will be lucky to get a UDFA pick for Colon.

Unless we can trade him to God in exchange for the time and money he has wasted us, Id say no.

the only way this happens is on FFMD with 43 trading for him being his biggest fan and all.

this wasn't supposed to be a thread where people really run down colon. I know he has had injuries, but is his value that low? He did play well at time and has versatility as well. Maybe arians will go for a trade?

You made a thread about a crappy player and asked what his trade value is.

People responded honestly about what his trade value is worth.

What did you expect?

Is his trade value really that low? Uhh...yes. Forget that he has never been more than an average at best player (and most of the time worse than that) and just look at the fact that he has spent 2 1/2 of the last 3 years on IR.

After all that, factor in his cap hit and ask...why would anyone trade anything for that?

Maybe some really stupid and desperate team would trade a 6th or 7th....but thats just pure optimism at best.

Colon has a top-OG type of contract and hasn't finished a full season since 2009, and he was questionable then.

BTW, despite missing several games, he still leads the NFL in holding penalties.

So, let's see here...

1. High paycheck
2. IR'd 3 straight seasons
3. Leads NFL in holding penalties as an INTERIOR offensive lineman (not even an OT, a damn guard)

so yeah, his trade value is about a thimble-full of pocket lint. I'd give him away if I could.

This was a good one, because I always thought he got too many penalties but that was false start out at RT. He kept his quota and then some

2. IR'd 3 straight seasons

I thought with some talk of him being probowl early on, that there might have been some validity despite my critical views. I was thinking trading him for a RB. Oops, Looks like cap space for next season won't be shed here
Embarassed


They are paying for that contract, it will haunt them for a few years.

Cardinals will trade an 8th rounder for him.

Every single time there's a big play I stand up and "holding #74 offense 10 yard penalty still 1St down, I was right 25% of the time. He holds so bad he should yell this is a stickup at the snap of the ball.

He isn't a bad player. Our best run blocker.
I have defended him for years but I can no longer defend him. He has had too many injuries. I don't like paying players that don't play.

Same reason we should get rid of Harrison and look to get rid of Polumalu in one year if he repeats his pas few years.
