He seems to think Pitt will let Kendrell Bell walk as a FA so they have the money to sign Plax. He's usually right about these things, so take what he says like Bill Cowher came to your house and left a note on your kitchen table while you were asleep saying these very same things.
This makes a lot of sense. Bell's name shows up on the injury list waaaay to often, and he really hasn't been a force since his rookie year. The emergence of Larry Foote has made him expendable.
I'd be extremely surprised if the Steelers didn't sign Plax. The Rooney's love him -- he's in that John Stallworth mold (though not as strong). During this season, when Big Ben scrambled, Plax had a good feel for where to be to bail him out. It's no coincidence that Ben's recent dip in production is tied directly to when Plax pulled his hamstring. Believe me, the Rooneys won't be quick to severe the Ben-Plax connection.
