All I saw were his XFL stats. He had 19.5 tackles, 4.5 sacks and 5 tackles for loss. I can't remember how many games there were.

Yes. He's been playing DT and he's ~285 lbs

Ah ok. Any chance he sticks as DT? In competition for Buggs? Do you see Either of them taking the DT spot? Or you think we draft a DT?

So where do you see him fitting in on the Steelers Defense?

The way they are going about adding certain “types”, it seems like there are going to be some different twists as far as the front 7 goes.

Reading the tea leaves.. it sure looks like they enjoyed having more than 2 legit nickel pass rushers last year and, now that Hargrave is gone, they wnat to make sure they have some more.

Me either. Watched some highlights but they always seem to make them look like all pros.

Apparently, the Steelers also signed his XFL teammate, OT Jarron Jones. (Who I also know nothing about. :lol: )

For fucks sake I forgot we even traded for Worm.

Hope you’re right B2B with different twists. Hope our DL stays health and can rotate thru several looks. Create chaos from everywhere and sometimes eat up blocks and let Bush and co get their sacks!

Also another Steeler signing today of a Bengals DB I never heard (Tyree Kinnel) from a Twitter account of someone I never heard of:

https://twitter.com/NFL_DovKleiman/stat ... 35872?s=20

Per this tweet, Kinnel is another XFL player. Making up for those draft picks we don't have, I guess.

A safety per SI:

They sure are B2B. Looks like another XFL player, an Outside Linebacker signed too. Another local kid also. These (now 4) XFL guys may even have a better shot than a 6th, 7 th rounder, or UDFA. Who said we had minimal picks this year. Was the perfect year to have minimal picks with XFL guys that auditioned.

Got to look twice but it's not Chris Kunitz....

Steelers signing OLB Christian Kuntz,
per a source. Kuntz went to Char Valley, Duquesne and most recently the XFL. He spent some time in camp with the Steelers last year. https://twitter.com/MarkKaboly/status/1 ... 59424?s=20

Orangesteel, Now that's some funny stuff, right there. Awesome! KCs probably getting all emotional right now, thinking about how good a friend you are to him. Lol!

B2B, you may have to rethink your SF Mock Draft strategy the 2nd time thru. Instead of trading back like you did, they may trade up into the top 50 or more likely, the top 100 now.

Ok, they're getting crazy now. They're signing one player a night. Tonight makes #5. The 5th XFL player and again a local kid. WTF!:

It would help football as an enterprise if several of the XFL players could catch on somewhere in the NFL. It would serve to validate those XFL roster spots as real employment with growth potential, while also serving to encourage the development of professional football as an industry.

At this point in society, just about any job is looking like a good job. And maybe even better if it could be a football related job.
