    Re: Allen Rossum traded

    do the steelers need more help on defense or is he more of a return guy for them?
    We're bringing purple back.

    I would assume he is being brought in for Special Teams purposes because he is not a very good corner, whenever he does play the position.

    I am sure there will be other moves like this by several teams that will make thier fans scratch thier head.
    In the end, we as fans are just that..... Fans.

    I for one, trust the coaches who do this for a living to make the right decisions.
    Judging by a few posts I've read so far this morning, some of you don't.

    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: Allen Rossum traded

    I don't see what the problem is..We just drafted a guy in the fifth round who will probably do little more than return kicks this year. What is the difference between that and trading a 6th round pick for a return guy?
