Not a Steelers type of move, they already made a free agent splash. Probably looking for too much.

Only if we got a great deal since we still have to extend our own (Worilds, Allen, and Ben).

The Steelers could have the shortest secondary in NFL history with Flowers. I'm excited by that proposition. Run to the phone like you do on draft day, Colbert!

no cap left and we need to sign Harrison sooner or later. I wouldn't have problem with a proven CB to replace taylor who proved last year he is no starter. Flowers also knows how to catch, but I am not sure if this team even cares about that.

If the FO signs Ben to a few more years and free's up cap space, then the flowers signing might be possible. What would flowers agent command as far as years/$M?

The Pouncey signing actually freed up Cap Space. I don't think it will happen but that signing isn't the reason (at least not immediately).

How did the pouncey signing free up cap space? His new cap value (5M range) is higher than his previous cap value (1.4M range) The numbers I mentioned were recollected from the web somewhere, I just hope it wasn't Ian rappoport. Signing Ben to a new deal will free up space though . Idea We have to keep some cap space to sign players mid season if a starter goes down or just fails (not hinting am I?)

How would flowers fit into this scheme anyways? The team is high on the youth, 3 cb's right there, then the 3 vets that are going to make the team.

I'd be thrilled to have Flowers, I doubt we even look at him but if we did sign him, there's no way it hurts us. We severely lack quality/proven depth at the CB position.

So who was the problem in the secondary?

1. Taylor
2. Clark
3. Allen
4. Polamalu being asked to play LB/S and not a safety role
5. Lack of pressure










6. William Gay

I know man, brain fart we all have them Brick wall Brick wall Brick wall Brick wall Brick wall Brick wall
