Trading Holmes: A Slap in the Face to Fans

This trade is absurd.  I understand the franchise needing to trade him and get their image correct, but are you kidding me?  A 5th?  This is a slap in the face to fans of the Steelers who deserve a better effort than a couple hours worth of searching and taking the first deal offered.  

I am ashamed that this is how they decided to handle this situation.  Do we really need 4 5th round picks?  Now do we take a WR with our first pick?  That just means we miss out on a better prospect at a position we NEEDED.  This is absurd and I can't believe that this is how our FO handled this situation.  I always give our team the benefit of the doubt, but this is a bad move.  

What say you?
