Steelers may shake up draft

JasonLaCanfora twitter

Steelers have been in contact w/ Raiders regarding Big Ben trade. Might be only real option. More on NFLN and NFL.com
I'd give up a 2nd, Manny Lawson (they need depth at OLB) and a contingent 4th-5th next year.

Perfect fit.
I know we're hoping Davis will come along, but I would trade for Ben, Alex and Carr can battle for back-up and maybe Davis makes it past waivers.... Just like with Walsh - he was loyal to winning, not to a player - not even to Joe. When he thought he could improve the team (with Young) he would do it.

I think I would just dump Carr and keep the others. Unless Nate has been making little progress

I just assumed he was already dead and busy auditioning for the new Weekend at Bernie's movie.
If only Clausen drops to #17, the 9ers draft him and trade him to the Steelers for 18th and a 3rd rounder.

Yeah but ...... Remember the local reaction (reportedly) regarding Vick? Surely Ben would be equally unmarketable in SF just when they need friends for the stadium project?Or am I wrong?

You would think that would be the case but the penalties for abuse of animals are often greater than spousal/domestic abuse. The reasoning on Ben might go something like this; that girl may have only been 20 but she looked 26, and how can she complain when she walked into a nightclub looking like a hooker, got drunk and starting acting in a very provocative manner. She was just as much to blame as Ben, so blow the whistle, let's play ball.

In a very liberal market such as the Bay Area, people would much more likely forgive Ben for taking advantage of a drunk who put herself in harm's way than Vick for shocking a poor innocent dog and then hanging it by the neck.

Just a thought...

Al can just drink the blood of the girls that Big Ben assaults.

This is actually a good trade if they can get a line together for him to throw behind.
