Default Smoketonio for a 5th Round

What a joke, why would we let him go so cheaply he was one of best 1st Rounders and an MVP!!! I am livid!

They must be really down on him to let him leave for this cheap!

In all honesty, he wouldn't have been getting a new contract from us, and they must be putting a lot of faith in Wallace to take-over his spot.

No wonder we got Randel El and Battle it's beginning to make sense now.

I am shocked, but I'm sure we would have exhausted a few avenues before settling for the Jets offer, time left till the draft too,. . . . might have been best leaving it till draft day?

Potentially in Wallace we have a very similar player to Holmes, but quicker, cheaper and a lot less trouble n strife.

Agree on Wallace, however I cant see how they can justify a 1st round pick MVP for a #5 rounder! I know theres the issues etc. but this is a joke!! Sweed should be cut he can't catch the ball, I think its all about seeing if Battle or Randle-el can step up into that #3 WR position, even with a year left and missing a few games (remember Marshall was due to miss 4 games as well last year but didn't!) I would have rather not got another 5th round pick and keep him another season.

Strange that Smoke wanted it as well seeing as he was a Steeler fan before he got drafted!

Apparently the steelers were that pissed with him they were going to cut him.

Also PFT is reporting that Leon Washington might be part of the deal - if this is true then it doesnt make the trade look that bad. But a 5th rounder on its own is a steal for the jets

They were lucky to get something for Santonio, the man got a 4-game suspension and the with the off-the-field issues he's had lately the Steelers didn't have much leverage in any kind of trade. Rumours were going he was even going to get cut.

I think we need to be happy with what we got for him. Obviously we will get a better deal if we want to trade Ben...

I'm not happy with the off-season the Steelers are having with all the negative media-attention (Reed, Holmes & Ben). Rooney's & Tomlin need to step in and hit them where it hurts: in the wallet.

Jets are going to be big with Holmes and Tomlinson for them. I can see them gouing far taken down the Saints even possibly.
