thats definetely an upgraded for Pittsburgh and a much needed one. bettis can officially become a #2 and famous Amos will get the boot.

Damn, was hoping he'd go to Dallas :\

Great signing for the Steelers, though fantasy wise with Bettis on his team, I can see the goalline TD's being swiped already.

Step in the right direction.

Wonder how much the new O coordinator will utilize him.

Wonder what they will do with their draft now. They really need help in the secondary, O-line is kinda beat up, and we could really use a QB.

So does this mean that Dallas will probably draft a RB?

Bad news for anyone who was hoping Staley would be the featured back somewhere, but he has immediate value as a #3 and possibly a lower tier #2 RB.

Staley will probably be taken out on short yardage, but im not convinced he will be ripped outta goal line carries. Last year the bus even struggled at short yardage. I don't think it will be a RBBC, but jerome will slip in a few carries. Duce will be the featured back

Duce is actually a real good option for short yardage, so the sooned the Bus gets a flat the better. I didn't htink the Lions would be able to offer him enough to nab him. He should excel if the Stillers can get healthy on the O-line.
Will famous Amos end up in Detroit, Dallas, or ???
