    What should the do with this guy?

    Spent a 5th to get him. Then he didn't even crack the lineup till like the last third of the season. But, then played pretty well.

    Now i'm reading that because of his late success, coupled with his age and ability, he may get paid in FA.

    Do you spend a lot of money on such a small sample size?

    You did spend a 5th rd pick for like 6 games. And Haden is probably gone. CB is a definite weak spot. Then again, where was he all year?

    It's a tough one.

    I would give him a 1 yr prove it deal to see what he can do in a full season, and take it from there

    He’s slow and can’t cover one on one off the line. He does have an eye for the ball. He can be depth but nothing more.

    My understanding is that he actually runs very well. Someone else please chime in.

    Has Tomlin EVER coached a DB up? Burns, Davis, Golson, on and on...

    Colbert had to bring in Nelson, Haden, Minkah from the outside to have any semblance of a decent backfield ( for a guy hired with Defensive background as his forte lmao ) and now Witherspoon...All the good/decent ones, were brought in from outside the organization! Popcorn hasn't developed ONE...Into a good player, in FIFTEEN years! * Specialized in Defensive background lol

    I keep trying to tell y'all, Popcorn is a Fraud!

    I'd like to see a couple year Cam Sutton type of deal for him.

    I'm just not sold enough to offer a long term deal on him.

    James Pierre really disappointed me, this year, I soap boxed how good he could be, but he regressed back wards

    I was really thinking the Steelers might of struck gold and found a dude.

    With these one word thread titles I feel like I’m playing that game or somebody says a random word and you’re supposed to say the first thing that comes to your mind.

    Yeah, he runs and covers pretty well. I think the knock on him was his tackling.

    Definitely re-sign but not sure we have seen enough to give him a long term deal. Something like what Sutton got is a good suggestion

    well, you can't just 'keep him'. you have to PAY him. I have said for years that when you suck, like we do - you have to overpay. he will test the market. I'd bet he'll get a 4 yr 25M offer. that is what we will have to pay. And we should. We can't draft 13 starters....

    It’s a sample size analysis but during a couple of games I specifically watched him with my binoculars. Me at least, not impressed.

    Perhaps I should copy and paste my entire post into the thread title?

    Jeez dude, if you have no interest in the topic of "Witherspoon", then don't click on it.

    Your constant irritation with everyone and everything at all times, is getting really old. Lighten up.

    “Witherspoon”could mean anything.
    Maybe he was suspended?
    Maybe he got in a fight?
    Maybe he got arrested?
    Maybe he got an extension?
    I could go on

    How about a title that at least somewhat explains what the thread is about. Like “ Should we extend Whitherspoon”
