The timing of the Worilds announcement couldn't be stranger.

I wonder if there's something else going on that they're trying to keep private.

Well if I made 9.7 million last year, I wouldn't be going to work either.  Especially if said work has a good chance of turning my brain into swiss cheese.

Fair enough. 

But if I told you that for 4 more years in the league, I'd up the ante by $30-40M...  Deal, or no deal?

Seeing on the WWL that Steelers are one of the teams interested in Patrick Robinson, CB from NO.  I can believe that.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Louisville WR DeVante Parker has official visits scheduled with the Dolphins, Titans and Ravens.

Parker has already worked out for the Steelers and Browns, and Cleveland has scheduled an official visit with the star receiver. The Browns, of course, own the Nos. 12 and 19 picks. Miami is reportedly interested. Parker would be a nice gift for QB Ryan Tannehill.

Tomlin apparently dined with Parker and his parents.

IMO this is similar to the Steelers' interest in Odell Beckham last year, Parker is quite likely a top-15 guy.

LIKE that we are not fixed on reaching for a position of need.

DISLIKE that those needs are so pronounced. 

If Parker fell and we took him, we'd have about the best receiving corps around.

I can't keep track of this shit.

Throw every roster into the blender; liquify.

Clearly we gotta take one CB R1-2, and another late rounder.  I've said Kevin Johnson is their R1 lock, but who knows.  I'd say exigent need exists at OLB now more than ever, with a thinned FA OLB field.  So, what we draft in R1-2 will obviously be OL and RB, right?

McCain goes to the Fins. Starting CB's are Gay and Blake? or Allen?...Ouch.

It would almost be as if they had to find a way to win with only ten men on the field.

*snicker*

Starting OLB's Jones and Moats? Starting safeties Mitchell and Thomas?

I don't like the look of that. Granted some draft picks will fill in, but that's a lot of holes. And let's be honest, the Steelers haven't been that great in the draft in recent years. Certainly not good to continue to not sign medium level FA's to plug and play.

The offense isn't going to be the issue next year, and the FO needs to build a competitive D. They don't have to dominate, but have to be better than last year. And it's tough to see how they will better, at least at this point , admittedly early March.

We build through the draft.  We watch the early parts of FA with detached amusement.  The very best-managed teams are typically not active in this phase (Steelers, Patriots, Ravens, et al.):  they wait for the children to tire themselves out. 

Well, they better improve in that phase.  While what you said is true, those other teams that tend to stand on the sidelines are doing a hella better job at talent evaluation.
