We ask Jeremy for the latest he's hearing on the negotiations between Ben and the Steelers and Jeremy says it's slow going right now and the big issue is whether or not they're going to ask him to take a paycut.  Jeremy thinks there's a chance the deal gets done this week.  Jeremy tells us that across the league, the perception of what Ben has left in the tank isn't as bad as what you hear here.  Jeremy cites the Colts game where Ben made a couple of throws that only a handful of quarterbacks in the league are capable of making.  Jeremy also believes that the Steelers have a good feel for what the Mason Rudolph market will look like after next year and think they'll be able to keep him around on a short extension to be theri guy after Ben, at least in the short-term as a bridge guy.  Asked if the Steelers had any real interest in JJ Watt, Jeremy says they called, but late last week it got down to 3-5 teams and he hasn't heard a whole lot that the Steelers were going to be serious contenders.  On the Juju market, Jeremy says the Steelers are in no rush with him right now and could wait and see what the market offers him and then try to come over the top if they think they can afford that number.  Being a Florida Gator himself, we ask Jeremy if he thinks Kyle Trask would make sense for the Steelers in the first round and he says absolutely.
