Please shoot me first......but why?
@HugeSnack. It's like a twilight zone episode.
Lead blocking capabilities what lead blocking capabilities? Ok one of you new contrarians please try explain this one otherwise I'm rolling out the FireFly meme of Mal at a loss for words.
Is back. My question is why? We need to be looking at other positions. Hopefully, we will learn one day, about letting ol dogs lay
Maybe Spaeth is thinking about hanging them up
The only thing I can think of is that with out Blake, Will Allen, Cam Thomas and soon some other vets there will be no one for Coach Tomlin to continually put out on the field even though there are younger and better guys pushing for playing time. So KC went out and signed a few so Mike had some Vets that he trusts so he can say look guys the youngsters just have to bide their time.
Why would anyone complain about camp depth and backup roster spot competition?
We run a ton of 2 TE formations that are a key to our running game. We've got a new pass catching TE, a 2nd year player, and a fantastic blocking TE who is near his end. We need depth and experience at the position, even if it's only until final cuts.
Great move! It costs literally nothing.
I blame this guy for the SB fumble! For literally blocking "NO ONE!" and standing there like a deer in the headlights! Pick one and hit him, Mendenhall doesn't get hammered by 2 guys and fumble!
So no news is no news
He won't make it through camp and if he does he will be the 4th TE that never gets a helmet.
This man is one of the few Steelers that I've ever had genuine disdain for. Well Morris I guess you can add this to your list of "Tomlin doesn't worry about what the fans think". LOL!!!
Ha! When I saw the news about Johnson earlier, I thought "where's Snack when you need him?"
I'm thinking about hanging myself.
It reminds me of a joke that Dennis Miller once told. He said that he was friends with these two guys that were midgets and since he had never been a big success story with the ladies that sometimes he would go out and take his two midget friends with him to try and pick up girls and it never failed that as soon as they walked in any place they went that the women would instantly go "I like the tall one". Now I'm beginning to realize why all my buddies always wanted to take me places too...
i don't mind this move and thought johnson had improved during his time here. i could see spaeth getting cut as i have said in the past. we need the money for what spaeth brings at this stage of his career. he's beat up and always has nagging injuries anymore. without will johnson they were looking at backup FB types anyway.
Henry Hynoski is available Mac if they are really looking at FB depth and guys that can you know actually lead block.
I am not sure why Spaeth and Johnson are even on NFL roster's let alone the PGH Steelers.
Lets move on from these types.
Because David Johnson has proved over many years that he brings neither of those things.
This post made me first laugh, then cry.
they have nix. i read they were looking to try to convert stingley i think it was to more of a FB role as his backup and now johnson. it's a backup role similar to will johnson with TE capability, dj is that type. will j wasn't a true great in line blocker either. here is to hoping he's improved and there are no guarantees he even makes the club. MT liked DJ though.
Dj was always horrible as that hybrid TE/lead blocking FB role though. What was it we used to say about him? Jack of all trades master at none. He was average at everything he did, not horrible but not spectacular either, just meh.
Factually wrong... he's on his 4th contract because he brings exactly those things: "camp depth and backup roster spot competition"
Any chance of that bullet missing Johnson and accidentally hitting Landry Jones??
