In somewhat of a surprise move I have learned via profootball talk, rotoworld, and ESPN that the Ravens have made a move for RT Eugene Monroe. Not that anyone pays attention to Jacksonville, but he was the 8th pick in the 2008 draft. Certainly a very good player by our line standards. Baltimore is reportedly giving up multiple "third day" draft picks in the deal. Their current RT Mt McKinnie has struggled and Ozzie wasted no time to address an immediate issue to protect his 120M quarterback.
This is exactly the type of move I wish the Steelers would make. With right tackle being a glaring need we should do something drastic. We are short on cap space to add any big names however unless we deal a contract which is highly unlikely. I wish NFL trades went down like NBA trades more often. LaMarr Woodley anybody?
Steelers cast off Max Starks was released by his third team in 2013 today. He started the season in San Diego, recently cut only to be signed by St Louis who cut him for roster space today. I spoke with one of his managers last week and he said it was frustrating moving the family around for Max. Although he was not pleased with how the Steelers handled his situation it is not crazy to think he can be back.
