    Could the Steelers make a deal with the Rams again?LOL
    Bettis deal worked out pretty good, Aaron could play for his hometown team.
    Penn Hills Indian, Pitt Panther and now a PGH Steeler. Yes.

    To be fair, they would have had to trade up. The Rams took him 13th overall and the Steelers' took Shazier at No. 15. That said, I was with you then. I thought they should have moved up. All due respect and love to Ryan Shazier, that was the worst example of sitting back when they should have moved up since they lost out on Darrelle Revis. I know he's a little short for the position and he's more of a 4-3 tackle than a 3-4 guy, but Donald was a beast in college. He is the kind of guy you move up to get and the kind of talent you adjust your defense to accommodate.

    You do realize this guy is probably due to be the highest paid NFL defensive player in history and the NFL came out with this thing years ago.. but I forget what it's called.... OH YES NOW I REMEMBER!!!

    THE SALARY CAP!!!

    I'd pay Donald insane money long before I'd give it to Bell. :)

    Somebody brought up Khalil Mack yesterday. He fits more of an immediate need and it's more realistic. Raiders could use Bell.

    I would love a fearsome dominating D-line.

    Yeah, too bad. It's a pipe dream just like Donald on the Steelers D-line.

    He would still be worth it. Also, I would have loved to see the impact he would have had on that defense the last few years.

    Isn't Donald a 4-3 DT? How would the Steelers use him in the 3-4? NT or DE? I say use him like Texans use JJ Watt... move him all over the place.

    "He's got to get out here and play better," Gruden told reporters of Bryant.


    Something tells me after the MB trade, the Raiders might be hesitant to make a trade with the Steelers. Reggie McKenzie is still in rape counseling after Kevin Colbert bent him over.

    I think the Steelers should trade for Donald, Aaron Rogers, Gronk, Mack, Jalen Ramsey, Luke Kuechly and Patrick Peterson.

    Oh man I was dying for us to take him...didn't he go a couple picks before us. I was all aboard the Donald train I remember quite a few naysayers...

    I would honestly try to trade Bell for Mack. Apparently he’s being shopped.

    I really liked him coming out of college but he didn’t really fit into the mold of a Steelers DE.

    To be honest I think Donald could play anywhere on our front and be good. With his quicks and strength he could rush from the OLB spot and support the run from there. No pass coverage but I think the kid could do it in a limited role with his abilities. What a rush we would have and who would you double? I know this would never happen but the kid is talented enough. :cool:

    I totally agree and I think his fit was the argument I was having with some at the time. His skill set supersedes scheme...

    Think outside the box people. We are not going to resign Lev Bell, and we are not going to throw anymore money at Ben R,
    You package some bodies and ship them to La we then have the premier defensive player in the game. Bang.

    Mack probably wants a $100 million deal too, never going to happen with the Steelers.
