    IR is a strong possibility as well.

    We all know the team does not like to give up on their draft picks early and they don't like exposing them to waivers.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Yup, that's what happens when injuries cause teams to panic a bit. Some of these vets are just sitting home until a team has a season ending injury that makes them all of the sudden valuable

    Charles Woodson goes back to where it all started for him. Signs with the Raiders, over SF and Denver.

    He must not care about winning. SF would've been a good fit but maybe they lowballed him

    Apparently Denver offered him some decent money.

    Why would Charles Woodson care about winning? He's already got 2 SB rings. He's potentially a first ballot HOF'er.

    He's getting something close to $2 mill guaranteed. This will be his last year, so why not make that money?

    Max Starks signs with the Chargers.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I am pretty happy about this because it means that the Steelers are pretty much stuck with who they've got and their OT's are pretty bad.

    Was it a big difference in $? All things equal he may regret getting beat every game.

    So, he's HOF eligible the same year as Ray. Does that hurt him, or did he not have much chance to begin with?

    Maybe. They also drafted DJ Fluker, who will probably play RT, and they signed King Dunlap, who will probably compete with Starks to start at LT.

    Neither of those guys have anywhere near the talent that Gaither had, but at least they'll be on the field come game day.

    Really interesting that they seemingly made little effort to retain him. Who are the Steelers going with at LT Marcus Gilbert? Mike Adams?

    Denver's deal was worth up to $3.7 mill and the Raiders offered him up to $4.3mill. Not a huge difference. However, the Raiders offer was $1.8 mill base salary...no idea what Denver's base salary offer was. My guess is less than $1.8 mill.

    They also signed Guy Whimper and they have Joe Long (Jake Long's little brother).

    My guess is they'll let Gilbert and Adam compete for the LT position. Gilbert seems more of a heavy-footed linemen, so not sure how he'd work at OT in general...let alone LT.

    If last season was any indication, Mike Adams at LT is going to be an issue for the Steelers all year long. He looked bad last year. Really bad.
