    Steelers aren't going to pay him that, maybe 3 though.

    Sorry, I wasn't eluding to Tomlin taking over DC duties, but more so brining in a DC with a different philosophy with potentially a different scheme. This Lebeau/Butler scheme is stale and has been floundering since Troy left and certainly since Shazier was injured.

    Time for a fresh start on the defense.

    I agree and I have said I thought there was a struggle with Butler and Tomlin over scheme. I want both gone but if not I want a least Butler gone and Tomlin to bring in his guy and maybe get this defense a ton better.

    I said awhile back I would love to see JP, Jerry O and Butler gone and Bowles, Greene and Shazier to replace them. Maybe we are on our way and since Greene was hired by Bowles in NY maybe that would help in getting him here.

    Yes he will Glenn if he is on the team after the league year starts due to the stupid offering of the 5th year option which is 9 large. So maybe your suggesting they make him an offer for multiple years? He is a large part of why this defense is putrid.

    Are you talking about Tomlin? Being the best at what? Tape looping? Cliches? Clock management? Challenges? In game and halftime adjustments? Preparing his team properly for every contest? Drama? Guess I don't get what one is best at...

    I mentioned Matthews before also Anthony Barr, both are way better than Bud and way cheaper.

    Yes they will make him an offer for something like 3 years 15-18 million or they’ll rescind the offer. I can’t see how it could make sense to pay him 9 million for what he brings to the table.

    Bud knows he’s not worth 9 million. He’ll make a deal.

    Why would he do that and give up 9 mil this makes no sense Dud has all the control once we picked up the option. If he wants a longer deal it will have to be for bigger money or else he will play this out and hit FA next year.....

    Also exercising the 5th year option wasn’t stupid especially if it can be rescinded. If Bud had a breakout year we’d be happy. They’ll make a deal or they’ll let him walk.

    If the Steelers pull that 5th year option ( which has been reported they can do) who’s going to pay him 9 million? He’s not dumb. He knows he’s not getting that kind of money.
    He may choose to test the waters, but he’s worth about 4-6 million per year at most.

    Exactly. We’ll find out soon enough. Some people get so worked up over nothing though.

    Letting Porter go ( fired or not ) covers Butlers dumb ass and letting the WR coach go if confirmed covers Tomlins dumb ass.

    That will shut up those people on thesteelersfans.com.

    I believe I read they can cut him at any time, even after one game?

    The 5th year was a good move and a no loose option. Most likely they will try to keep him on s much lower contract or let him go.

    I would think his agent doesn't think that way since he unfortunately has been 4 year starter.

    Yea your right Glenn we should all just chill out and watch this defense go down the drain even more with the likes of Dud Dupree staying here. So do you think he is even worth bring back AT any price?

    Hard to have an intelligent conversation with someone when they keep calling the guy Dud.
    Things are more than likely going to work out as I said. Everything can’t happen in one day. Have some patience.
