The Steelers now have 5 days to match the Patriots' offer. If Pittsburgh does not match the offer, New England would send their third-round pick this year to Pittsburgh.
Earlier in Free Agency the Steelers lost Mike Wallace to Miami, so this is yet another blow to their depleted WR core. This bodes well for the Browns, any blow to a division foe is a good one.
