PFT reports the Steelers are close to a deal with OL Shar Pourdanesh and Roger Duffy.

Arians is such a mastermind with the playbook, there are going to be crazee azzed plays all over the field.  I say with Arians at the helm, ARE and Dixon combined complete more passes than Ben.  Crazy I tell ya.

Wow, most unexpected.  WTF was a reporter out of Denver talking about Clark!?  Did his spleen get stuck there?

And I hope they're not expecting El to fix the return game.  He has to be an end-of-the-bench WR at this point, right?

ARE = slot receiver.  Battle = ST/desperation depth.  Sweed = thin ice.  

I don't think he (Sweed) is done, although I tend to be over-optimistic that guys can turn it around (cf. Willie Reid).  We really need Sweed to pan out not just because we used a R2 selection on him, but because Ward's age and Holmes's contract mean a lot of change in the WR corps could be on a short horizon.  In any event, I wouldn't cut Sweed just yet.

And ARE might be used on PR; Foster was solid on KR, but the PR game still needed something.

I doubt very much that we threw much guaranteed money at either Battle or ARE.

It's the new 5 QB 1 WR set.  You may know who it's going to, but you won't know where it's coming from?  Why?  Because Bruce is wear-his-undies-on-the-outside crazy!

Clark's deal--4 for 14...I can stomach that.

No word on guaranteed, but can't imagine it's too much.  Gives us the flex to play Clark a year or two, and still possibly draft a FS.

Has ARE learned how to run FORWARD on the PR? Seems to me he had to spin like three times before he got going in the right damn direction.

I think this is a sign that Sweed is done. There is something weird going on with him, and I think that the Steelers are moving on.
