After a week off, we’re is back. That’s right, people, it’s another Steelers Lounge offseason podcast. We recorded this Thursday morning but waited a day to post it since Adam and Ted had already published some stuff on the site. (And let’s be honest: it’s the slowest part of the year so we need to space out the content).
We also talked about the possibility of Pittsburgh trading up in the draft (Gretz and I are fine with it, JJ … not so much), potential first-round targets other than offensive line or cornerback, and why the Steelers wouldn’t take a 26-year-old with the 31st pick, even if Mel Kiper suggests as much in his most recent mock draft.
Other names that come up: Mike Pouncey, Derek Sherrod, Stephen Paea (apologies in advance for butchering his name), Rahim Moore, Carnell Lake and Ike Taylor.
But there’s more … because no offseason podcast about the Steelers would be complete without mentioning Plaxico Burress (the new/old Limas Sweed!), Tiki Barber (SHOCKED Pittsburgh’s not interested) and Carson Palmer (morbidly curious to see Jordan start in 2011).
Yapping starts promptly…
