The Terrible Podcast – Talking Role Of New Steelers RB LeGarrette Blount, Pre Draft Visits, Pouncey Extension & More Episode

Season 4, Episode 92 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I talk about some of the recent comments made in interviews by new Pittsburgh Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount and linebacker Arthur Moats as it relates to their initial roles with the team in 2014. Both of those topics lead us to talking about the workload for running back Le’Veon Bell in 2014 as well as whether or not linebacker Jason Worilds will eventually get a contract extension this offseason.

Speaking of contract extensions, will the Steelers extend the contract of center Maurkice Pouncey this offseason? It’s possible, but there are a few reasons as to why that might need to wait until next offseason. We go over the entire situation for you.

A few more pre draft visitors have made it to Pittsburgh so we discuss a few of those players in detail and also talk about a few things that happened around the league over the weekend that might affect the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

As usual, several other Steelers talking points are also discussed along the way.

    David Todd, I agree 100% with your views on Jason Worilds. The fact that we couldn’t/didn’t get a long term deal done this off season says a lot. (Much like Wallace last year.) I think he’s looking for a bigger payday than we’re willing to give him.

    IMO Jeremiah Attaochu (OLB) (Ga Tech) shows just as much promise as Worilds did (coming out of Va Tech) and will be available around 2.15. There is no need to spend $10 million/year on Worilds if you can get a similar result in 2015 from an early pick 2014 rookie.

    I don’t htink that is what they meant. Worldis is worth every penny of 10 mill/year if he plays for the length of the season teh way he did last year when he was given a complete chance.
    They were saying that a 1 year deal is a good one, if a player flunks, you only hurt for one year. If he does well, the CBA gives you options.

    93 is a lot different than wallace. Wallace had a young budding star with a steeler mentality behind him. keep in mind that 93 didn’t have to sign his tender, he could have visited other teams. Do you think wallace would have done the same?

    I give our FO a lot of credit for how good they are. They knew that wallace was leaving and they didn’t want him because they knew what he is on the field. To put it in tomlins words “a one trick pony” who got every chance to prove that he has other things to his game. 93 on the other hand was a pleasant surprise at holding the edge, blitzing, counter moves and overall productivity. I can’t vouch for his coverage skills.

    I guess we just see it differently.

    The Steelers wanted Wallace. They made him an offer. If Wallace had signed it, he is here right now. Then when they saw he wasn’t signing, they tagged him, and went on to plan B.

    The Steelers said Worilds was a top off season priority. I have to assume they made him an offer as well. He obviously refused to sign it. So they tagged him. It is yet to be seen how they proceed.

    David Todd said he wouldn’t pay Worilds more than $8 million per year. 4 yr / $32 mil. (Go back and listen.) I agreed with him. You feel he is worth $10 million. It’s nothing personal we just disagree.

    Worilds played 15 games last year and only had 8 sacks. I’m not saying he sucks by any means. He did a solid job. But I’m not paying him $10 million, especially when he’s only done it for one year.
