Cleveland trades Shelton and a 2018 5th for NE’s 2019 3rd.

Classic deal for B.B. He gets a 24 year old former top 15 pick who has underperformed in Cleveland and will most likely turn this kid into a productive DT/NT at a bargain.

I think we tried this with Justin Gilbert. Brandon Boykin.

In other news......the Rams could have an unbelievable defense at least on paper. They gave up a 2 and a 4 to KC for Marcus Peters and a 5 to Denver for Acquib Talib. Philly has improved their D too.

I am preparing for another exciting Steelers off season. Looking forward to the Mike Mitchell releese and his subsequent resigning for less money, or possible Timmons signing.

It's so tough being a Steelers fan. *sniffles*

I'm sure giving up a third round pick for a slow DT who will get to play the same amount of snaps as Tyson Alualu will be a huge success much like dealing for Albert Haynesworth and Kony Ealy was.

Shelton is a dinosaur. In the mid 90s he'd be a great, great player. While it helps to have guys who are good run-stoppers, they have to not be a liability on pass plays or you're going to get killed more swiftly.

Meh... I guess the rich get richer? I'm looking at it like the Steelers signing Alualu.

The Patriots are going to win Festivus, though...

between the Airing Of Grievances and Feats Of Strength... they're pretty well set.

Unless you play a team with one of the most enemic passing attacks in the league and they decide to just line up and ram it down your throat all day even though you know it’s coming.

First off, you can run outside and ZBS stretch plays against Shelton, and secondly, they'd have had all day to PA pass.

I was just thinking of how we managed to lose to a team that put up like 90 yards passing for the game.

That anthem controversy must have really taken away from prep that week. Only so many hours in a day.

I just wish they wouldn't always win against the Steelers.
