Now,Plax isn't gone yet and Ben(they have become friends) has reportedly been trying to his impose his will on both sides.But I think he is gonna go and needs to be replaced.I've heard talks of Gardner,Muhammed,and Jerry Porter and would like to hear some thoughts on these guys as well as any others you can think of...

Gimme a break man,80 catches in an offense that ran the ball like 60 percent of the time...ridiculous.
Anyways,I liked Porter best of this bunch and also like ARE although I like him better as the 3rd option,he excels there.Have also heard talk of trying to get Lamont Jordan with the Plax money,I guess thinking Bus will retire.
I'd think ideally the Steelers would want another tall guy like Plax is/was in order to have a guy who can "go up and get" throws. I suppose Gardner wouldn't be too bad...he's still got some years left and he should come relatively cheap (trade value and contract value) due to his recent performance. I know you posted it earlier, but I don't think anyone will give a second rounder for him.
Muhammad would probably want too much money (they'll need it if they want to nab Jordan), and Porter has also shown some promise but might want too much cash. None of the three are as tall as Plax (all of them 6-2 compared to 6-5), but they can jump. They shouldn't need an "impact" guy anyway...the run attack is their bread and butter, they have Ward who is just money for the tough catches, and Randle El for speed/trick plays.

How about David Patten? (if the Pats don't sign him) This guy is just like Plax, he's the kind of receiver that you can throw it deep to, and he won't cost the Steelers that much. I think he could fit perfectly with their offense. Just my opinion.

Are you kidding? 80 catches, 1000 yards, that's a pretty good year. Granted, he only had 4 TD's, but you had to know that with Roethlisberger at QB and Staley and Bettis in the backfield they wouldn't pass a lot in the redzone. Hines Ward is by no means a bust. He had an off year for fantasy, but he is probably one of the Top 5 all-around recievers in the NFL.
16-team PPR Keeper League QB: T. Romo, V. Young RB: M. Turner, B. Wells, T. Hightower WR: A. Johnson, J. Ford, N. Burleson, A. Roberts, J. Simpson TE: D. Clark, J. Cook K: R. Gould D/ST: Cardinals
I would like to see the Steelers pursue Jerry Porter, the guys a machine if put into the right offence. Randle El is better suited in my opinon for the slot. I dont think the Raidahs are gonna let Porter slip away though. Muhammed will demand way too much money for what hes worth. Hines Ward a bust??? you have to be kidding, maybe in a fantasy sense he didnt have his best year but fantasy numbers dont win a superbowl. Id take 80 catches for 1000 from any Lions reciever and call him the second coming!
