    He's got the dropsies but he's a big play threat and better than what we have on the roster. It's a good move. When's the last time we had a TE score 65 yard and 75 yard TDs in the same season?

    Joe Haden is apparently on the trade block. He's not what he once was, but if I'm in the Steelers FO I'm getting Cleveland on the phone.

    An Burns-Mitchell-Davis-Haden secondary sounds good to me.

    He would make sense from a Cleveland standpoint.

    Those divisional trades are hard to pull off though.

    I like the trade for McDonald, he has more upside and is more athletic then James....Vance can bring some of things that Green brought to the passing game....He has some drop issues but the 49ers QB situation was a dumpster fire the last few years....Plus another weapon that could score from 50+....I like to see defenses cover AB, MB, Vance, Rogers/JuJu, Bell.....

    "A second-round pick in 2013, McDonald had issues with injuries and drops during his tenure with the 49ers. He missed 16 games over four seasons, and his 15.8 drop percentage was worst among tight ends with at least 75 catchable targets since 2013, according to Pro Football Focus." The QB situation had little to do with his issue with dropped passes. I'm not particularly excited about this addition but we do need help at TE. Coaches probably saw something in him beyond the drops and injuries.

    Yes, I know, I read all of that plenty of times after the trade was made....Jesse James drops passes as well and isn't half as athletic as McDonald....I like the trade gave up a 4th for their 5th and a TE that upgrades a lackluster TE group....If McDonald bombs the Steelers can cut him very easily to get out of the remaining years of the contract.....Very little risk....

    ok. James' drop rate is way below that. All receivers drop passes. Half as athletic? no one can quantify that. It's simply a statement. there is no risk here at all. I get that. I don't get the label of athleticism with all those drops. He has durability issues as well. But we'll see

    One would think we have to at least look at his preseason tape and bring him in for a workout.

    Re: McDonald

    A lot of times team fans play into a narrative. Depot looked at all of the incompletions his way last season and found only three or four that were legitimate "drops."

    How many 50+ TDs has James scored?.....McDonald scored 2 in one season, of course he doesn't compare anywhere close to Shannon Sharpe, but Vance has more speed/RAC ability then James......James is nothing more then a limited role player....Not bad as a number 2 TE but very limited upside...Plus what I have read he has been a disappointment in camp.

    I understand Vance, has drop issues and health concerns but he gives the Steelers an potential upgrade to a very average TE group....

    @RapSheet: Joe Haden is getting $4M guaranteed from #Browns - with offsets. If he settles in at less than $4M, new team pays him minimum, CLE pays rest

    @RapSheet: What does that mean? Suddenly, Joe Haden could play for any championship-level team for a bargain while still making his $4M from #Browns

    @AdamSchefter: Joe Haden's agent Drew Rosenhaus on his client: "Tons of interest in him. He will have a new deal with another team by tomorrow afternoon."

    Bleacher Report just reported that the Steelers are showing "strong interest" in Haden.

    Please...

    @AdamSchefter: Steelers are the favorite to land former Browns CB Joe Haden.
