    I like the signing. Ebron has big play-making ability, which the Steelers desperately need.

    Hopefully they'll be able to keep either him or McDonald on the field, because they're both injury-prone.

    What the hell am I doing here?
    I don't belong here.

    Hopefully he looks better with Ben throwing him the ball this year. but I don't think he is the machine people on here think he is.

    I really like Juju. But I might just agree with you a bit. We'll see.

    Nice little look on Ebron's redzone TDs.

    Of those 9 red zone touchdown receptions that Ebron has registered the last two seasons, nine were caught in the end zone, most among tight ends, according to Next Gen Stats

    Yes, we just don't know the contract details yet. For him or Dangerfield. We do know it's a 2yr $16M contract, but how much is signing bonus vs salary is still unkown.

    im afraid too many fans are assuming we got the 2018 ebron and not the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 or 2019 version

    Lot of that will be dependent on which Big Ben version we get.

    Just sit back and watch the air show when Ben returns to form. It should be an attractive TE duo when put him and McDonald in together...

    You're right, I had Jimmy Graham's contract on the mind...

    $6M a year is correct, but we don't know how it breaks down.

    Ben has to be licking his chops. 2 legit TE's. Multiple RB's that can catch out of the backfield. And, JuJu returning to form after his injury-plagued season along with an improving Diontae and Washington. I sure hope Ben gets back to form. It will be fun to watch for the next 2 years.

    I think it's a good contract given the possible upside to him compared to what Hooper and Graham got in FA.

    yeap given Graham age and Hooper contract, Ebron is a good risk/reward option

    I hope he comes in with a chip on his shoulder. He's already responded to naysayers from a local radio show here.

    Poni comments a long-time scout says Ebron doesn't keep quiet. Ebron immediately chirps back.
