Noted in the FA thread.  

Booger failed his physical in Feb. (?), after starting zero games for Indy.  Maybe Booger got better.

Interesting.  You'd think he could probably be had on the relative cheap considering his recent health troubles.  Why the hell not?

Well, here's why not: not if he can't play.  He's how far removed from a flunked physical?  I know Tomlin knows him from his Bucs days, but that shit didn't work out so well with Mahan...  What would Booger be doing here?  Running the 40 sets with Kirschke?  Backing up one of the ends?  

Guess he'd be cheap.

lets hope so guys, cuz booger signed...i have mixed feelings on this, wanted to go with some young guys, but if he has ANYTHING left in the tank and was signed CHEAP, i am all for it, cuz he definitely will be an upgrade over eason/kirschke.

Would this signing seem to suggest that we are gradually going to continue switching to the 4-3?

IF he's signed cheap, I really have no problem with the signing.  It's not like he's coming in to save our d-line.  Unlike Mahan, Booger has been signed for depth and spot duty, which should help him out when it comes to his injury situation.

I'm not seeing this as a sky is falling situation.  Bring him in, see what he can do.

It'll be interesting to see what the terms were, but you have to assume he didn't command a whole lot of money (mostly because the Steelers don't have a whole lot of cap room left).  I like the depth he'll bring, and him probably seeing nothing more than spot duty early should atleast keep him healthy all year.

DL depth, I agree this is a good SINGING. If he is expected to start, or be on the field a lot, it is risky. 4-3 coming?
