ILB Marshall McFadden was cut from Steelers because they are extremely deep at the ILB position, but he's a good player. He could be a Possible upgrade to Barnett, depending if Barnett is healthy enough to be a reliable reserve or not.

The Steelers defensive coaching staff has been high McFadden for two training camps now, but they just don't have enough room for another ILB on their roster. He was on and off the Steelers practice squad and active roster last year.

Rookie Vince Williams from Florida State played amazing this preseason, he was everywhere and Kion Wilson brings an experienced back up to Foote and Timmons.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Redskins give McFadden a work out next week, but they may not get the chance because I'm sure the Steelers will designate him for their practice squad.

I think you can get into a bidding war for the PS. Not a given just because a team wants you back for their PS that you have to sign if another team comes calling.

True, so we could offer him more money and since we aren't as deep as Pittsburgh at ILB, maybe he'll see a better opportunity here.

Especially since Pittsburgh put their 2012 3rd round pick Sean Spence on PUP who is still recovering from a knee injury and they kept their 2013 6th round pick Vince Williams as their 1st reserve. It seems like an uphill climb for McFadden to ever break their 53 man roster, and we don't have those same barriers here.
