Starkey & Mueller   /   Steelers Insider Ed Bouchette


We open things up talking about the deal Le'Veon got and Ed says for a guy who vowed he was going to reset the market, this is a bad look.  As for the crowd that says the Steelers should have paid Bell at the beginning, Ed says they tried to, but he kept changing the terms.  Asked if he thinks the Steelers should have talked about bringing Bell back given his deal with the Jets, Ed says no because they're better off spending that money exactly as they have so far this offseason.  Ed tells us about the guys the Steelers spent that money on including cornerback Steve Nelson, who Ed says probably signifies that they have no confidence in Artie Burns to figure things out.  Chris asks Ed if he thinks Ben still has his best football ahead of him and Ed says it's hard to tell, but it won't hurt that he won't have AB whining all the time about not getting the ball.  Things wrap up with Ed talked about the AFC North next year and who he thinks is the favorite right now.
