Thought of the Day: Steelers

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

In our latest version of "Thought of the Day," we give you a chance to play virtual general manager of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Here is the situation: The defending champions just signed their final rookie (Evander Hood) over the weekend and, with limited cap space, now must decide which 2010 free agent to lock up long term before the start of the regular season.

You only have one choice, virtual GMs.

The impressive list includes starters such as defensive tackle Casey Hampton, tailback Willie Parker, safety Ryan Clark, tight end Heath Miller, defensive end Brett Keisel and kicker Jeff Reed. Here is a link if you want to see a chart with the age of each player to help make your decision.

Another option is to sit tight and not sign anyone, if you choose.

This is currently what Pittsburgh management is discussing behind closed doors on the South Side. But our doors in the AFC North blog are always open for our community to voice its opinion.

So send your thoughts on which Steelers veteran you would sign long-term and why to our division inbox or comment section below, and we will run the best responses in the blog throughout the week.
