    Little brother hit me up this am saying dude we're getting Tate. It didn't materialize and especially after retaining Rogers and picking up moncrief there was no need. I did however tell him that It wouldn't surprise me... Spend on O and leave the D as is. Folks say we've wasted Bens years around here and I agree. Too much dough being thrown at the O a d the D is a bit neglected for varying reasons. Reminds me of the colts during Peyton's run.

    They can't cut him or else all 9.2 mil becomes dead money, once the new year started on Wednesday his contract became guaranteed:

    The option is worth $9.232 million and is guaranteed for injury. If he is on the roster on the first day of the 2019 league year his salary will become fully guaranteed.

    I still am not sure is they can work on a long term deal but Dud is not gonna do that to take less money. They can trade him but is there interest????

    This made me laugh. It reminds me of the commercial that ends with the dude sitting in an empty room flailing about with VR goggles on.

    I'm seeing a lot of unconfirmed rumours at this point. Nothing official.

    There's a story from 24/7 sports saying he only recently started following Several Steelers on Twitter. If that can be believed.

    The only way I can see this happening is if Ben’s extension is also done.

    speculation I had seen last night was that Houston was practically a done deal, but they couldn't make it official until Ben's extension was done because of the cap. FWIW...

    There isn't any news anywhere about Justin Houston. Maybe you're Kevin Colbert. Or Batman. Batman would probably know too.

    You would have to think he'd be wary of going to a team that just let their aging veteran olb go in order to throw money at ano there who was cut to save money and because of a scheme change. Sets off like 10 different warning flags to me.

    Well Suggs was there for 16 years ,which is crazy. It doesn't exactly signal a lack of loyalty.....

    I think it does signal the changing if the guard from Ozzie to the new GM and how not even franchise guys are safe.
