      It's interesting the Pats would spend a draft pick since they don't have all of theirs this time around. Now the Steelers have 5 days to match.

        Could this just be an attempt to make the steelers pay more money?

        I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

          How does that help New England?

            So Pats offer only a $2.5 million 1-year deal and a third-round pick to snag RFA WR Emmanuel Sanders from the Steelers, who currently only have $2 million in cap space. The Steelers can't just match unless they open up $500K in cap space through other means in 5 days. A very tactful move it seems. Big Ben will be down to Antonio Brown and a washed-up Burress WR combo real soon.

              So much for RFAs not being touched.

                Looks like the Steelers found a way to open up $500K in cap space to match the Pat's offer sheet in five days. Emmanuel Sanders is staying put on the Steelers.

                    Pats need receivers pretty bad, I wonder if they'll go after anyone else. Danario Alexander has a low pick attached to him...

                    Perhaps they could bundle Ryan Mallett into a trade for one.

                      Steelers matched the Offer sheet so that's that. pats don't get him. Does BB now put together an offer for Cruz? Before Friday?
                      Football has been very, very good to us.
                      After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                      But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                      # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                      1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                      2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                      3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                      4-New York Giants!!!
                      5-NE
                      Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                        However giving up a 1 vs a 3 is a huge difference as well as the money difference of 2.5m vs 8-10m. After looking at it my question above was a dumb one. Not comparing apples to apples here

                          It helps because it forced the Steelers to clear up more cap space to match. That means an extra free agent that the Steelers can't sign now, making the competition a little easier.
