Eason is pretty much a role player, not much more. He's the guy that ditched Broncos TC a few years back.

A waste of time move. He will be cut in training camp. Why a guy that can't start for the Browns would be brought in to help, I don't get. More money being used that could be used to resign Troy, Ben or Faneca.

It still ties up 1 million bucks, that could be used elsewhere. Yes we need depth. That is what Nua, Bailey, Hoke, and Kischke are. That makes 7+ million in back up DLmen, and we have starters that are not signed.

We have the lowest cap space in the NFL right now, we're just above 1mil. That's a questionable move with the amount of room we have to work with IMO.

blah blah, i don't care how this move looks. we are one of the best run organizations in all of sports. why does it matter how it looks to us peons?? we are the fans. lets start acting like it and support them. they know what they are doing. i am tired of ppl questioning what the FO is doing all of sudden.

wow, easy lol. I wrote an article in which I ranked the top NFL GMs currently in the game and I had Colbert in my top 5, even given his short resume I still think the guy is one of the best. So, yes I very much have all the confidence in the world for our FO to continue leading this team in the right direction. Matter of fact I was going to add something along those lines to my post, but figured everyone would just see it as mere speculation, however we are in a tough situation with our roster and cap room so every move made is going to be put under microscope. As a true fan I don't have to like every move they make, but I will respect it.

yea i know it just has been happening a lot lately. i guess it has been building up inside of me. my previous comment was directly typed to you. just in general and a lot of ppl once again are questioning this move. and yes i don't necessarily agree with every move they make, but i support it and as you said respect it.

Here is a little write-up by SI about the Steelers signing Eason. I hadn't known that Bailey went to Arizona, but since he did I think that this move does make sense. I agree that the FO knows what they are doing, so Eason is most likely at least a solid back-up. Plus, if he doesn't work out then we probably only spent 500k on him.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200....ap/index.html

More DL help from the draft will probably come, but you never know what will happen with a rookie, so you might as well sign a guy who has proven himself at least a little bit.

Nua hasn't broken the PS. Bailey is in Arizona, and Kirschke is a 10-year pro with Chronic back issues. This is a camp competition thing. I'm fine with it. Eason was going to be a 1st/2nd rounder until they found out he had severe ADD.

Rich, Bailey is in Zona, and Nua hasn't made it off the PS. Kirschke is 10-11 years. If he gets cut after Camp, I don't see how we won't have the money to sign Ben/Troy/Faneca.

Don't forget...

Could be cap casualties:

Wilson: 2+M
Tuman: 1.5M
Okobi: 1.3+M

Since we didn't ask Okobi to restructure, we have a younger, more fiesty player in Phillips, and Simmons/Mahan are battling for OC... could be that Okobi gets cut.

If we get a solid TE, Tuman could be cut.

Perhaps we're aiming at a Day 1 ready to go out of the box WR (Jason Hill) because we're looking to cut Wilson?

Thats a total of 4.8+/- M Not to mention other players I don't know about. That was just off the top of my head (I don't remember the exact figures.)

Yea... I did.

I guess I was stressing a point.

we have "4" DE's. We're talking about having Keisel doing some LB drops and rushes, Aaron Smith was just resigned, we still have Nua who hasn't made the active Roster.

I think I was really pointing out that Bailey joined Morey in Zona...

PITTSBURGH — The Steelers signed unrestricted free agent defensive end Nick Eason to a one-year contract, the team announced today. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Eason (6-3, 305) was originally drafted by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round (114th overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft out of Clemson. He suffered a season-ending injury in training camp and spent his rookie season on the Reserve/Injured List.

In 2004, Eason was waived by the Broncos following training camp but was signed to their practice squad for three weeks. After being waived by Denver, Eason was signed to the Cleveland Browns' practice squad where he spent seven weeks before being signed to their active roster for the final five weeks of the season.

Eason spent the past two seasons on the Browns' active roster, playing in a total of 29 games during that span. He posted a career-high 23 tackles and two passes defensed in 2006 after recording his first two career sacks during the 2005 season.
Is it just me or do Shaun Nua and Brett Keisel seem identical?


PRO (0-0/0-0): Drafted in the seventh round (228th overall) by the Steelers in the 2005 NFL Draft.


PRO (34-0/8-0) The Steelers' final draft pick in 2002, was one of the seven draft selections to make the final roster…continued to developed into a solid role player along the defensive line in 2004…grown into one of the team's top special teams players…signed a four-year contract with the Steelers during the 2006 offseason.

Hopefully Nua Developes as fast and well as Keisel (If not faster and better) and then we'll have a duo of BYU 3-4 DE's taht scare the **** out of everyone.
