Mosley. Given team needs and the fact I'm getting value on my investment. The contract would be set up with lower cap hits early and high salaries at the end in a bloated contract fashion. Stash some roster bonuses in there for some guarantees and you're away home free.

I like Nelson imo. He is an excellent fit for our defense.

I like Nelson as well. It prevents us from drafting a DB. But do you like Nelson for $8m. Or do you want an ironclad All-Pro for $17m. Keep in mind that $17m is deceiving. His first year cap hit could be like $5-6m.

I like Nelson at $8M. The reason I say that is because unlike anybody we currently have on the roster he has Ball Hawk ability.

I also don't think that Nelson prevents us from drafting a defensive back it may alter our plan in the first round but if there is a guy there that is worth drafting Pittsburgh will do it and if it means we have three solid Corners at the very top I think they will be just fine with that though I expect inside linebacker to be our priority now

Steelers still can use another CB. We have Nelson and Haden (injury prone) ZERO depth behind them.

I know they are now looking to go LB first but I hope they dont reach, if Greedy Williams or Baker are there and the top 3 lb's are gone they should draft the corner

As someone who has no skin in the game either way, I’d rather pay a decent CB 8 than a very good off the ball LB 17.

Positional importance is a thing.

Especially an off ball LB that's best attribute isn't coverage, which is what we need more than anything else.

+1... we could not afford to upgrade VWill, which is what Mosely is.

 

CB was always our #1 need, bar none.  We can not hope to compete with Sensabaugh as our starting CB.  Would a drop LB be nice... yea.  So would a true FS, a X reciever and another TE.  But, this addresses our BIGGEST need.
