I was wondering if I should post this since it is 3rd party information. I have a good friend who happens to have a close relative who works for the sporting news. He called me on Tuesday telling me he heard the Steelers did offer Bud Dupree an extension but it was significantly less than what he is going to get for this season. My question to you guys who know more about financial structures, could the Steelers have been possibly trying to reduce his salary to make it easier to trade him? Does that even matter at this point? I'm guessing if they offered him an extension that 3 years combined would probably be less than what he is going to get for this year alone. I also think he won't be back after this season unless he has DPY season. I'm also starting to think that the Steelers are still thinking Dupree could get better sort of like they do with McCullers. Is it Tomlin or Colbert? I guess it bothers me with the Browns looking like world beaters on paper as they have OBJ and after 8 games will have Hunt as well.
