    I don't think you got the sarcastic overtone of the comment.... For a guy drafted in 2009, Shipley was passed around the league until he finally won a starter job in Arizona around seven years later. Okobi sat as the pre-eminent starter in waiting for years until his turn came and they finally decided he wasn't that good. He also went to the Cardinals. Not a surprise destination for Steelers cast offs. Both were still probably better than Mahan...

    If he ever makes the HOF he’d go in as a Steeler. And the Steelers can always put him in their ring of honor, I assume. Kind of cold that they are ALREADY reassigning his number though. I don’t like that. Maybe eventually you give 92 away, but not the next year.

    Just his one play... that PICK/TD run in the Super Bowl alone wins him ELITE Steelers honors in my book.
    Hollywood,
    I agree with all of this. No, it doesn't matter practically. I just think it's a show of respect and appreciation for his contributions over the years. Perhaps a morale booster for the rest of the team; a way to say "no matter what, when you are a Steeler, it's for life".

    Best,
