Spaeth returns to Pittsburgh. A good cheap move for them IMO what with Miller ripping his ACL and Spaeth's blocking abilities. Now if they could stop their ADHD mentality at RB, they could have a decent ground game again....
...and Patriots go through with it and sign Emmanuel Sanders to an offer sheet. After they get formerly presented with the offer sheet, Pittsburgh has 5 days to match it or get a 3rd round pick. It is thought that the Steelers won't match the offer. If they lose Sanders the team will have Antonio Brown, Jerricho Cotchery and Plaxico Burress as their three remaining WRs plus a couple practice squad guys. In other words they have diddly.
Isn't Sanders basically a slot receiver? Isn't Amendola basically a slot receiver? Don't the Patriots need a serious X and/or Z receiver?
Just shows you how desperate teams can fuck up the curve for everyone else.
Mike Wallace was seriously overpaid too.
Bit nearly $10 mill per season for a 30 year old receiver coming off of an injury riddled season...wow.

The Patriots like hurting rival teams like the Steelers, Ravens, Giants etc, he's always believed in that. Why do you think he traded up infront of us to get Hightower last year? Hightower would have made the Ellerbe loss seem like nothing. Oh well.... Upshaw looks like a good player anyway.
Man, that is one disgusting Steelers receiving corps without Sanders. That 3rd rounder is almost a 4th rounder. I'm curious to see what the Pats signed him to. Most feel that the Steelers will not match, whatever it is.
