Do you guys think Saffold will be shopped or will he just have to suck it up?

According to Fisher, they've already talked to Saffold about it and he's fine.

Any word if their keeping Saffold at LT and playing Long at RT or is it the other way around?

Not happening. Long is going to be the LT.

I'm guessing Long saw this video before signing with us. Laughing

Love this signing. I wanted either Long or Cook in free agency. Somehow we got both. Jake Long is healthy and he fits our scheme. He may even have a chip on his shoulder because he didn't get close to the money he wanted. We got an elite LT who is still fairly young. Absolutely great get for us. Let's get Warmack at 16 and have a dominate line for once.

I think he definitely has a chip on his shoulder. This was me upon hearing the news:

I don't see why Long couldn't play RT for a year. He'd move over to the left before his deal is up anyways.

Why bother teaching Long a new position for only one years of work? He didn`t come to St. Louis to be a RT. I think Saffold will be traded for a later round pick so we wont have to worry about it.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Steelers "made a play" for LT Jake Long before he signed with the Rams.

It's extremely interesting, as it shows a lack of faith in Marcus Gilbert and Mike Adams, and indicates the Steelers aren't as hard up for cap space as the public perception. Any Long deal would have been majorly backloaded, but perhaps the Steelers are finally ready to start adding players instead of shedding them. For now, Gilbert is expected to open 2013 as Pittsburgh's left tackle.


It's being reported that the deal he turned down, was In the range of

5 years 45 million dollars.
