    If the players extend the CBA then the Steelers will be fine against the cap once they do some obvious moves, and that includes the tag for Dupree.

    Hope would be that OLA is ready to assume that role and Chick would be used in a limited rotation.

    The difference for me is that I feel like Ebron is an upgrade. I like Vance. When he is healthy he is a good blocker, exceptional athlete, and he runs great routes for a TE. Unfortunately his health seems to always be a question mark, and his play has been inconsistent even when he is. Ebron will be a more consistent threat as a receiver, especially in the red zone, and I would bet on his health being less of a factor than Vance. If the numbers end up being similar, why not upgrade? Just my 2 cents.

    Every year fans throw out these big name free agents, knowing the Steelers won't be major players in free agency :shrug:.

    Topic of conversation. Nothing more nothing less. Nice change of pace from Mike Tomlin threads.

    I hear what you are saying and don't totally agree or disagree. I agree Ebron is a better red zone target while Vance is a better between the 20's guy, especially with Ben at QB. However take 2018 and his 13 td's out and every other season Ebron is just avg and that to me does not justify giving him more money.

    Not that I want Ebron but if you take away McDonalds 50 reception season in 2018 and his production leaves a lot to be desired as well. I’m only comfortable with Vance because Ben seems to be.....

    Yeah but then look at who was throwing to EE( Luck and Stafford) and who was throwing to VW(Gabbert, Kappy, MR/Duck) easy to see why EE has better stats. Like you say with Ben back so should be Vance.........

    OLA would need a major shift in his thought process in order to assume Chick's role. He knows he had to perform on special teams in order to get playing time as a backup but he wasn't fond of it. So he better become the second coming of Steve Tasker if he wants the job.

    Wasn’t it Skipper who wasn’t really given a shot on STs until the last PS game? I don’t recall Ola having a issue with it. He actually played well on STs until he got hurt making a tackle.

    Free agents are vastly over-rated except for a select few. We did hit on Nelson though.

    They are basically the same player but Vance knows the playbook.

    FYI

    30. TE ERIC EBRON
    Even with a perceived rejuvenation to his career in 2018, Ebron has enough of a sample size for teams to feel comfortable about his skillset as a solid pass-catching threat and below-average run blocker. Ebron set career-highs in receptions (74), yards (827) and touchdowns (14) in 2018, though when paired with a 70.5 receiving grade, we see that some of that production was fool’s gold. Even if he never reaches those heights again, he’s heading into next season at 27 years old with four straight campaigns of 69.0-plus receiving grades — and that’s a good resume for an athletic tight end who can work the middle of the field.
