Season 8, Episode 83 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to discussing the main talking points that came out of the Thursday interview with Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert with members of the local media.
David and I go over Colbert’s thoughts on the weaknesses of the Steelers defense this past season and how he is open to signing an inside linebacker during free agency.
We then go over the Steelers current defensive back situation and how the team might ultimately get Cameron Sutton on the field in 2018.
We take a little time during this show to discuss how the Steelers should approach free agency this offseason and if they will stay away from defensive players 30 years or older. We discuss how that process should coincide with this year’s draft and even talk about several potential free agent targets for the team.
What players will be cut by the start of the new league year in March and will safety Mike Mitchell be included in that group? We address that topic again in addition to going over what Colbert said Thursday about getting running back Le’Veon Bell signed to a new deal this offseason.
We close this show out by discussing the compensation the Steelers received from the New York Giants for trading them cornerback Ross Cockrell last year in addition to talking about the compensatory draft pick process and why Pittsburgh isn’t projected to receive any this offseason.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
