Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsWhile the future once appeared bright for the Alliance of American Football, the realities of the recent investment from Tom Dundon became starkly apparent after it emerged that the majority owner had decided to suspend operations just eight weeks into the inaugural season. Initially hailed as the savior of the AAF when it was reported he had invested $250 million into the league just a few months ago, Dundon opted to pull the plug when it became clear that he would not be getting the immediate cooperation from the NFLPA that he was looking for. Seeking a formal affiliation with the NFL that would guarantee the fledgling league players at the fringe of NFL rosters and also significantly increase the value of his investment, Dundon’s attempts to leverage the NFLPA into giving him the agreement he wanted have unsurprisingly fallen flat.His decision to end play at this stage of the season appears to have come as a surprise to the rest of the AAF, including co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian, with Polian issuing this statement on Tuesday and reported by Darren Rovell of The Action Network.AAF employees were informed of the league’s suspension via a somewhat impersonal mass email sent out to players, coaches and staff members alike. A note that also hints at the AAF’s hopes to return with new investment in 2020.And as the AAF disintegrates, the truth behind the way the league was poorly managed is just starting to emerge. While some reports have attempted to lay the blame for league’s failure at the feet of the NFL and NFLPA for failing to negotiate with the AAF, it would seem that most blame Dundon for the league’s premature end.For players like former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Jamar Summers who was one of the AAF’s standout performers, the exposure the league gave him should be enough to earn him a spot in an NFL training camp this year. But for many of the other players in the league, their best shot of ever playing professional football again might be when the XFL launches in 2020. The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to be big players in the free agent period."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Latest NewsSteelers Film Room2018 NFL Draft AnalysisLatest NewsNFL Free AgencyLatest News2019 Steelers Free AgencyReport: Steelers sign ILB Mark Barron to two-year, $12M contractNew,246commentsThe Pittsburgh Steelers continue to be big players in the free agent period.EDTShareTweetShareShareReport: Steelers sign ILB Mark Barron to two-year, $12M contractJake Roth-USA TODAY SportsJust when you thought the Pittsburgh Steelers were done with bringing in free agents Cameron Heyward Jersey , think again. On Sunday afternoon ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Steelers had come to terms on a new two-year contract worth roughly $12 million dollars in total.The move helps bolster the position for the Steelers, but Barron is coming off one of his worst statistical seasons, per ProFootball Focus:Barron, who was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, played for the Rams the past four seasons. Last year Barron played, and started, in 12 games registering 60 total tackles, 1 sack, 1 pass defense, and 3 tackles for losses.It is unclear how the Steelers will plan to afford Barron’s salary, but it is safe to say Barron represents the same insurance policy L.J. Fort provided the past few years before he left to the Philadelphia Eagles via free agency. Barron is an expensive backup, but don’t expect this signing to change the Steelers’ strategy heading into the 2019 NFL Draft. They absolutely need to add some new blood at the position, and it will be a huge target for Pittsburgh this offseason.However, with Barron under contract the Steelers could leave themselves open to enter the draft looking to take the best player available at any number of positions.For those of you who are keeping close tabs on the free agent/compensatory pick formula, Barron does not count against the Steelers since he was released and wasn’t a free agent.Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding this signing as they are released...
