Making the case for, and against, the Steelers keeping Bud Dupree

Joe’s back, as he joins up with Brian to discuss the Steelers decision on whether or not to re-sign outside linebacker Bud Dupree.

With a breakout year in 2019, Dupree is set to receive a huge contract. The franchise tag number alone sets him at around $16 million: but can the Steelers afford him?

That answer depends on several factors, but it’s not as bad as Dupree’s detractors claim. The duo also debunks why Dupree isn’t a “one-year wonder” with some startling data surrounding other Steelers and NFL pass rushing greats, further cementing their case to bring Bud back in 2020.
