Tenderoni




From The Official Pittsburgh Steelers Facebook Page:

The Steelers have tendered four of their RFAs. Willie Colon at the first-round pick level, and William Gay, Daniel Sepulveda and Matt Spaeth at the original draft round level, which for Gay is a No. 5, for Sepulveda a No. 4 and for Spaeth a No. 3. The Steelers did not tender Carey Davis or Darnell Stapleton, so they become unrestricted free agents on March 5.

Gay getting tendered? Please someone pick him up. I don't want to see the abortion that was last years secondary.You can all talk about he would be more natural at safety and is developing. No thank you. I want a shutdown secondary again thank you very much.

Spaeth you can find the door also. I think it's in his best interest to not be part of this twin tight end ran offense. He can't catch or block like we need him to. I didn't realize he was a 3rd rounder. That could be a huge pickup if someone takes him.

Speaking of all this tendering. I get the basics of it. You tender a UFA and if someone picks him up they have to compensate with a draft trade in the round the player was originally picked up. If I'm wrong please let me know. I'm still learning.

What I don't get is why we need to get rid of the robo-punter. I thought his kicks were fine. Maybe not the unreal hang time we had dreamed of his "off-season" in 08, but still got the job done. At least unlike Skippy he doesn't pat the return man on the back when he's taking it to the house.

So our FO is looking to unload Stapleton and Davis. Carey has been here and gone what feels like a fifty times. I'm one of the Tank supporters. Here's to hoping we see a big man getting check down passes in 2010.

Stapeleton I don't really care either way. I have a really hard time evaluating O-line men. I'll leave it to the real football nuts to cover that area.

I guess what all this boils down to is that I like the direction we're going. If we can have a solid draft and get these boys hungry again, we can make a run to the Super Bowl. Our window of opportunity is about half way. Let's get it done Steelers.
