    Default Will Allen signs

    3 year deal, no terms disclosed yet.

    The safety from Tampa, not the drunk driving cornerback from Miami. He looks more like a depth player than a guy who you'd be comfortable starting. The only season when he was a full time starter was 2006 Apparently he's been a very good special teams guy in the past and has been a Pro Bowl alternate and special teams captain.

    Basically, he looks like a guy good enough to be an upgrade over Tyrone Carter and should be solid on the special teams coverage units, but if he ends up seeing the field on the defense regularly we might be in trouble.

    Well, the Battle signing sounds typical of the Steelers FA route.

    I do like that Battle and Allen can both pitch in on special teams. I do not like that the PG calls Allen a "replacement for Ryan Clark".

    Yeah, well....

    I'm resigned to be happy with 8-8 this season.

    All things considered......

    Battle is a guy who can push Logan as a KR and Sweed/ Grishm for the 4th/4th Wr spots.

    Allen is a St teams stud, he is better than Chidi ans can play better than Carter great signings.

    the only problem is that Tomlin with all of his infinite wisdom cuts the better ST players, keeps the crappy ones and brings in or promotes guys not as good as what he had.. It's basically poor talent evaluation on his part. Call me skeptical with who is brought in until i see who gets cut in training camp

    Looks like to me this is our new safety. Clark is gonzo. Ya didn't think they were going to make a splash in FA but I dunno the free safety spot is looking weak as ****. Specially for a team that already sux at DB outside of Troy. Maybe Troy won't even be that good without a good supporting safety. I think the thing I like the least is they signed another one of Tomlin's boys. I am not sure this guy knows anything about the league outside of the teams he has worked for. This gets a big meh.
