Hometown Discount?

 Free agents get to choose where they play.

The Steelers are the Champs. They are a model franchise. They have the most respected ownership in the league, maybe in all of sports. They have a charismatic young coach. There is unity in the locker room, and a Nation of fans that is legendary. Who wouldn't want to become a part of all this?

Of course, agents care first about the bucks, and the Rooneys spend theirs wisely -while fools like Dan Snyder overspend on over the hill free agents. Players care about the money, but everybody likes to go with a winner, and everybody would rather work for a good boss than a bad one.

My question is this: how much of an advantage do the Steelers have over other teams...if any.....and do you believe this will translate into a Steeler discount...where players - especially  free agents - will sign for less to wear the black and gold?

We all know that Steelers' players often restructure their contracts - and have taken pay cuts - to remain Steelers while keeping the team under the salary cap.

Do you see the hometown discount playing a factor in this off-season????
