    I'm just speaking hypothetically and I know it won't happen but if Seattle offered earl Thomas and Sherman for Leveon would you make the trade?

    If we could get those 2 for Bell Colbert should give their GM a hand job as well.

    Two DBacks past their prime (aka the legion of what-have-you-done-for-me-lately) for one of the best offensive weapons in the game?

    Well ok... i was off about thomas... i guess he was a pro bowler this year but still... are they really going to help us win now? I saw the (surprising) stat that we dont appear to do better offensively w vs w/o bell but Seattle was one spot lower than us in passing defense and several steps in total defense... how much of an asset would they be for us?

    Of course i have to keep reminding myself our passing defense was good because everyone would run on us! ;-)

    I would say Sherman is past his prime but still better than mosr. Earl is still by far the best safety in the NFL and not out of his prime yet I give him 2-3 more all pro years.

    Revised my comments after looking further but still unsure that's the right trade for us... don't we need more help on the run defense side with more urgency?

    I would think so as Sherman may not be a shut down CB anymore but he could be a great #2 for many more years he is only 29 .

    We have a huge hole at Safety and Earl could fill that for many years as well..

    Bell will only play 1 more year for the Steeler's so 2 guys for multiple years vs. 1 guy for 1 .Yes I would do that everytime .

    Although I roll my eyes every time someone says "sure if the price is right" (because that's an obvious statement) I can see the merit but what kind of cap space would we have to tie up in these guys? I've not thought about who is coming up soon but folks always gripe about paying too much for older players (of course they only say that about people already on our team since we never bring in $$$ outsiders :) )

    Sherman, Thomas, Conner, Rookie ILB > Burnes, Rookie S, Bell, Rookie ILB

    Also allows them freedom to draft a RB early as Bell replacement

    Again 2 players for 20 Mil compared to 1 for 14 Mil. The 1 at 14 Mil will not sign saying that is to cheap and will leave after 1 more year . So the way I see it the 2 players have much more value than Bell in the only season he has left here . It really doesn't matter that they cost 20 Mil as the value is still greater .

    Now when you look at the years after that any GM that would skip that deal would be a fool. I wished they would offer that to KC .Bell would be on the 1st. smoker out of Philly tonight . He be screaming' Bumpy that's just a dime store trinket I had that for years'.

    Hell I'd consider trading Bell just for Thomas alone. Him and a mid round pick would be enough for me.

    I don't see Bell being a Steeler after this year. Unless he has a sudden epiphany this season and realizes that $15 million a year is ridiculous and isn't going to happen in Pittsburgh, I think he's already got one foot out the door...

    Or instead of getting rid of a player(Bell) that actually offers upside we could get rid of players that offer nothing( Mitchell, Wilcox, Sensabaugh, Gay, Golden) and free up 12m there to sign a S and a ILB and back ups to replace these guys.............

    The Steelers are trying to sign Bell. It doesn't seem like he's being rational so what are the Steelers supposed to do?

    How do we know that, how do we know what is being talked about? We hear contract numbers and offers but no details, there is so much we don't know but yet we are all(myself included) quick to cast judgment. We heard Bell passed up a contract last year what were the details...we don't know.

    The details were he wanted more than a 1 year guarantee, this time he said he wants a big signing bonus if he cant get a multi year guarantee, how big will it have to be, I think he wants at least a 20 mill bonus...........

    From the mouth of Bell:

    Bell, 26, confirmed last year he turned down a contract worth $42 million over the first three years and an average of $13.3 million over the life of the deal. Even his mom wanted him to sign it. Bell almost did.

    Since then, the Steelers are closer but not quite where Bell wants them to be with an offer -- though Bell adds both sides are negotiating in earnest.

    The rap giant turned it down because the upfront money was not to his liking. So started the franchise tagging. Now he feels that he won't take anything less then 14.5 a year minimum.

    Sorry i'm not on board with signing him long term. He can go somewhere else next season which is fine with me. He is a running back. Want receiver money, change positions. If he sits this year that's fine with me as well. I have soured on Bell. Some haven't.

    So another rental is on the horizon. A running back will be drafted this year.
