But they re-signed Plex, so all is well.

Wallace, Lewis, Mendy, and apparently Colon are all gone.

If they have talent, they're gone. If they're Willie Colon, they're still here for now. I've accepted that Colon will never leave because he knows the truth about what happened in Milledgeville and the Steelers have agreed to shut him up by paying him to impersonate an offensive lineman for as long as his heart desires.

I doubt it will happen, but I really hope the Steelers find a way to keep Lewis.

Larry Foote fell off a cliff last year, while Harrison was still productive. Great logic.

No way he plays for more than 1 year of that deal. They probably cut him after this year if Spence is ready

Guess Dan Connor's visit to the Steelers today meant nothing. Heaven forbid they sign someone who isn't ancient.

That absolutely blows my mind. Usually a guy like Lewis (i.e. up and coming player going into their second contract) is someone the Steelers make a priority to sign. On top of that, with how the league is now a "passing league," and the recent struggles the Steelers have had in the secondary, it makes this even more baffling.

If they didn't resign foote who exactly was going to play beside Timmons this season? If Shawn Spence was healthy he'd be a replacement.

The biggest concern is the lack of replacements coming up from the draft.

Antonio Brown ‏@AntonioBrown84
It's hard being rich young n black ! I got to coupe with that


Mark Madden touched on this, but the Steelers are becoming a harder and harder team to like. I can only think of a couple of players that I actually could say I like. Keisel...Miller...Starks? hmmm

Why is he buying a coupe? Certainly the rich part means he could easily afford a sedan.

It must also be really really hard to get a first down which is why he celebrates them like winning the powerball.
