This Just In...Jerry Porter might get traded to Steelers!!!!

Postby yankscool » Fri Oct 13, 2006 1:30 am

Just read on rotoworld.com....if he does go to the Steelers, is he even worth picking up considering Rothlisberger is struggling??

No hint of it in the Pittsburgh papers yet - can't see the staid, conservative Steelers signing a Raiders malcontent, but I guess it could happen.

If true, it would tell me that Hines Ward is not healthy. Bad news for Ward owners...I'm not sure Porter would have much value, except to cover a bye or something. Or unless the Bergermeister starts to light it up.

I think ProFootballTalk started this rumor... So I'm not sure what it's worth...

I hardly see the Steelers picking up either Randy Moss or Porter, since they didn't want to handle Plaxico Burress a couple of years ago.

But I admit the idea is intriguing! :-?

It would be a reversal of idealology for the Stillers to go after a high priced malcontent WR. Can't see it happening........wish it would though. Can't stand to see talent sitting a benches.

Hmm ... Even if this is true, I don't see Porter (or Moss according to another rumor) being an impact fantasy player.

The Steelers just don't breed good fantasy WR #s.

Hines Ward has been the only real exception to that and he is valued for his consistent numbers, not his explosive #s.

Porter and Moss could have some decent value on a different team but the I don't think that the Steelers would be high on the list.

I would disagree w/ that. Ove the years they have had some good fantasy stat producers. Although not Hall of Fame names, still good stat producers: Louis Lipps, Yancy Thigpen, and even Kordell Stewart was classified as a WR his first year which made him a great pickup considering he played QB too!

I doubt it will happen. But even if it would go through, look who is throwing him the ball if he lands in Pitt. Big Ben has 0 TDs and 7 INTS since the superbowl.
