It was a great start until you showed up. DAMN!

I hope they keep Ward too. He's a great leader for those young receivers, even if he doesn't play much. And let's not forget that he can still catch the ball!

Let's not get too excited just yet..... Steelers have a bunch of issues to deal with this offseason;
-Still way over cap limit
-D-Line ( lots of issues here )
-Starting RB: Mendy's knee is taking forever to rehab... is RedZone the starter ( for now)?
-Is the Hines Ward era over?
-Will Big Ben and Todd Haley mesh?

Id like to think the Steelers will be in the thick of pursuing another SB, but not naive enough to believe that it's "all good" in da"Burgh.....

"Two of the Steelers' highest-paid players are apparently willing to help the team with the salary cap.

The agents for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and outside linebacker James Harrison said their clients are agreeable to restructuring their contracts before the start of the NFL's new year."

Offensively, it could go either way next year. Mike Wallace says his heart will be with Pittsburgh but he's gotta do what he's gotta do .. Steelers are in trouble here .. They aren't confident he'll return and Wallace gave me the impression he didn't really care if he stayed in Pittsburgh or not (unlike other players on this team like Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, James Harrison, Troy Polamalu, and others who have jumped through hoops to stay with the Black & Gold) .. As talented as Mike is, Wallace strikes me as a player who wants the ball and wants to get paid but doesn't really care about winning or what team he's playing for .. I'd rather not have people like that on the team anyway, but with that said, losing him is still a huge blow. He can take the top off the defense and usually draws attention of the top corners on the field. We'll see if Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders have what it takes to carry this team if he is gone. We'll definitely need another veteran wide receiver if we can find one ..
I'm also hoping that Todd Hailey gets Heath Miller and Rashard Mendenhall more involved in the passing game. With the threat of losing Mike Wallace and Hines Ward looking more and more real, we're gonna need that extra help. Mendenhall has always been good catching the ball out of the back field, we just haven't used it as effectively as I would like in this offense. Any Steelers fan will tell you how great Heath can be in the middle of the field .. He can be a huge match up problem against linebackers and in the redzone, hopefully Hailey recognizes that. And hopefully we run the football more.. there's so much talent there.

Agree that Wallace sounds a bit too mercenary to me....he really underperformed last year, once he started getting double teamed regulary....Losing him would not be a "death blow" to the offense, esp if Haley uses more than 2-3 running plays and a handful of pass plays the entire game, a la Arians......As far as Mendenhall is concerned, he wont be available until midseason, from what I hear (will start season on PUP)...Isaac Redman should make the most of this opportunity to show the Steelers that Mendenhall might be good trade bait in the future..

I agree, how many long balls did Wallace drop? Brown and Sanders are great wide receivers and can fill the void. Maybe keep Cotchery and/or Ward and the receiving corps will be fine without Wallace. With all of this said, I'd rather keep him on the team.

"Redman won't be the only change in Pittsburgh's backfield. It was revealed last month that the team is converting tight end David Johnson into a full-time fullback. There's also been speculation that offensive coordinator Todd Haley will put more emphasis on the run than his predecessor, Bruce Arians."

"He is back to where he was before the injury, now working at left guard as he revealed last week. He came back early this offseason, one of just a handful of starters who has consistently been at the team's practice facility well before he had to."
