    "“Five years is a lot longer than a lot of people,” McCullers said of playing in the NFL. “So they like me as a player; I’ve just got to keep building and try to get past that level they want me at. I feel like I can get there; I just have to put in that work and get better.”"

    He signed for the league minimum in March '18. The following article said he had one more chance..

    I think can come to the conclusion with big Dan that going into the 6th year of his NFL career he should be beyond potential.

    A big dude that when he wants can be a force. It seems he'd choose not to be more than to be.

    His roster spot can be taken by someone else that shows a motor. Time's up for big Dan. IMO

    I was kind of pumped about them getting this guy where they did. He was ranked higher in a lot of places. Just go to show what i know about drafting people. He just seemed to have the skills. I've been wrong before though

    Of course, he'll lose the challenge.

    What a hijack.

    Let's save it. This isn't MLB, where you can hang around in obscurity for 5-10 years and then show your potential. There's too much wear and tear on these players - if you haven't shown what you've got by year 5, you are a bust. Hear that ABD?

    No reason to bring him back, this draft is loaded with DL, draft one in the mid to lower rounds.

    It won't be hard to match his level of production with a rookie.

    Won't save much cap space but any little helps.

    Agreed.

    He had five years to make a statement for himself and hasn't. He made a couple plays this year but not enough to justify a roster spot IMO.

    Too inconsistent. Never dominant when he is on either.

    Alualu , Walton are free agents. mccullers , Tuitt are underperforming. Tuitt for what he's paid. I'm not sure this can be fixed with just some mid round draft pick. :cool:

    I was really hoping this guy would work out and he turned into one of my most disappointing players.......hope he is gone can't stand to even see him on the sideline.

    I thought Tuitt played good the second half of the season, he is who he is a 6 sacks a season. Tuitt probably won't have a season like Heyward did in 2017 with 12.5 sacks, but if he stays healthy he's solid.

    Just another guy living up to his draft profile that the Steelers fell in love with based on his only attribute, his size. Kind of like Dri Archer with his speed.

    It could have been fixed two years ago when they were wooing Hightower had they instead made a serious play for Dontari Poe on short term deal.

    This would be a great caption this thread.

    Offical: " You can't challenge the coin flip Coach. “

    Tomlin: " That's what the guys in the booth told me too, but I decided to go with my gut. "
