Bob Pompeani says this trade is something that can energize a team still reeling from the loss of their quarterback.
This is something that can energize a team…Their front office is still “all-in”.. Plus he has years of service…Now, there is no excuse for this defense to NOT be MUCH improved…so many high draft picks on that side of the ball #Steelers https://t.co/SWaSOfMKHH
