Throw Terrance Toliver on the WR pile as well. He's the big WR we're missing.

They seem to be looking for more of a slot-type guy.

Dale, do you think the Steelers have any interest in bringing in Tommy Campbell as a UDFA? He's had a rocky college road since graduating from Aliquippa and quitting Pitt, but he's got the size, speed and overall athleticism to play CB.

Tommy Campbell didn't quit Pitt. He was shown the door. That's not happening.

I don't know if butting heads with Wannstache should be something that should be held against a player.

Still, Campbell is a talented athlete and maybe he's grown up since he left Pitt. He seemed to do okay after landing at CalU. Just seems he'd be worth a look with very little risk as a UDFA.

No UDFA can be signed until CBA is worked out. UFL has its draft on Monday. Could make things fun to watch in a few weeks.

Still some good UDFAs out there, for whenever free agency starts. Rooney should pay above the minimum to get some of these guys in here.

Ian Williams
Mario Harvey
Zach Hurd
Anthony Gray
Davon Morgan
Mario Fannin
Derrick Locke
Henry Hynoski
Jarriel King
Tyler Beiler
Dwight Dasher

Don't we have enough slot type guys at WR? Weird.
