Pittsburgh Steelers taking after various course than Patriots ESPN blog

“PITTSBURGH — This week, no other NFL figure has operated at the dizzying pace of Bill Belichick, who can’t seem to stop flipping high-profile trades. Receiver Brandin Cooks, defensive end Kony Ealy and tight end Dwayne Allen join an already loaded Patriots roster, thanks to wild draft-pick maneuvering in the past three days. As if that weren’t enough, New England is giving cornerback Stephon Gilmore $14 million per year.
What’s fu
y is the Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers used to be among the high-profile teams that proudly showed restraint this time of year. This year, the Steelers are staying true to that path, while the Patriots bodysurf on the free-agency waves. Since Antonio Brown’s mega-extension last week, the Steelers have stuck to light housecleaning, re-signing backup quarterback Landry Jones and reserve tight end David Johnson, while calmly targeting a few free agents from afar.
Both plans can work. The AFC playoffs will help determine which works best.
