Steelers Likely To Cut Three O-Linemen

16 posts in this topic

I feel like Starks and Colon are on the market every year and they end up getting re-signed through injury.

Colon was not a great tackle, but has made himself into a pretty good guard. I remember him pancaking Burfict last year and then laying on top of him trying to drive him into the ground.

I suppose concessions have to be made somewhere to get us out of cap hell. I would be willing to take the risk on Starks/Colon if we get them on the cheap. Get a little old to tide us through the here and now so we can get in good shape for the future.

Won't surprise me if a few of the signings that happen this year look like "placeholder" signings, i.e. older cheaper veterans to get us past this year's salary cap mess.

The Steelers offensive line is consistently labeled one of the worst in the league. I'm fine going young.

this is the type of players we'll be signing the next couple years...older, cheaper, short term contracts.

don't want any steeler OL cast offs, tho. they've been really bad for years.

The thing i like to remember when referencing the Steelers offensive line is that these guys were part of the smash mouth downhill run blockers. The new Steelers are going pass heavy and looking for more athletic lineman. Im sure that one of these stout run blockers could fill that right guard spot nicely. At least for a year or two until we can draft a replacement.
