    Taking a flyer on another O line project. Jones has been with the Giants, Seahawks, Cowboys and Bills since he got in the league in 2017. 6'4" and 315 lbs with long arms. He was taken in the first round of the XFL draft.

    Colbert is about ready to start making draft picks.

    Colbert noted in a interview on Steelers . com that they are on "pause" in free agency. So I expect maybe one or two more cheap XFL signings and nothing more till the draft which I expect will include a big UDFA class to fill the roster.

    Interesting. In my perfect world, they’d still sign a big 2 down run stuffing DT. Someone to push McCullers for the immovable fat guy role.

    Such an unfortunate and misguided statement. Guys playing the A gaps are so much more than an "immovable fat guy" and the good ones are technicians with their hands, eyes and minds. If you don't have a decent zero technique in an odd front, the opposing offense will run 31 or 32 all day.

    Lucky for us few teams focus on a power running game these days. But you are correct. The best example was the Jacksonville game a while back.

    Thanks, Captain Pedantic. Gee, I've never heard of these fancy football concepts before. Can you perhaps tell us all more? We are mere empty vessels waiting for you to pour your exalted knowledge into.

    Like I have said, numerous other places, I was and still am hoping that the DT FA market continues to trend downward and someone like Damon Harrison, Mike Daniels, Timmy Jernigan, Shelby Harris, or Corey Liuget is signed for far below their projected market value. All of these players have played the role you have technically defined and I outlined in snarky way.

    With so few draft picks, the Steelers have plenty of spots to fill to reach the 90 man roster at the start of camp. XFL is the way to go.

    Christian Kuntz(25yrs old) was on the Steelers preseason roster last year as an OLB.

    Tyree Kinnel(24yrs old) SS 5'11"-210lbs. Ran a decent 4.48 at the combine. I didn't find much info on him but just based on age, size, and speed he should be able to compete for a backup Safety role on this roster.

    Wouldn’t it be funny if they signed an XFL QB and that winds up being the guy to replace Ben?

    ...and then, two years later, we draft our next franchise QB.

    I’ll take it. Seriously...a Tommy Maddox type holdover until we find another Ben? Where’s the papers? I’ll sign up right now...
