Barnidge is the answer, he will be ready for next year

Knew someone would bring Gonzalez up. I've heard worse ideas. Imagine what the offense could have done with him as a weapon and/or safety valve this season.

Why would Pittsburgh trade Heath Miller?

Would the 32nd pick and Heath Miller be enough for Pep?

It was reported a while back somewhere that Tomlin wasn't all that keen on Miller. And they have Matt Spaeth behind him.

I wouldn't say that's enough, and the Steelers don't like giving up draft picks so it might be hard to get a good value trade there.

I'd love to acquire Miller, but a realistic trade scenario to get him likely doesn't involve Peppers.

(not that I expect it to happen regardless)

Too bad Barnidge won't ever get thrown to.

i wouldnt mind seein gonzales here for a year or two to give some of the younger guys we have some time to develop and they would have a great mentor. especially if we could get a good deal. i know it would never happen but it would be cool if we could work out a 3 or 4 team deal involving us, the cheifs, new england, and the chargers since all these teams have big name players they may be lookin to trade maybe we could walk away with gonzales and some other compensation from a couple of those other teams...yes this sounds crazy but im bored and its justa thought

Gonzo wouldn't be a crazy pickup, doubt it happens, but not crazy to think about.

The problem would be getting him to play for way less than his worth.

We never seem to give our tight ends much work their first year here so it is unclear what potential Barnidge has for example. If he puts on some muscle over the offseason he should be the answer for us. He was a little light last year at 247 but was quick at 4.63 in the 40. If he puts on 10 lbs of muscle he won't slow down and would have the size to block as well as stretch the field.

King looked great in training camp and then had a mediocre season after that. He caught half the balls that he did in 2007. I guess without Carr dumping them off constantly, it hurt his average.

Rosario is another guy who started off great and disappeared completely. He caught 15 of his 21 catches in the first five games he played this year. After that it was next to nothing.

I would hope that Meeks can help Chryst develop these guys. No need to spend a lot of money bringing someone in when we have three fifth rounders on the squad already. We surely should be able to use the talent we have.
