Morning take: This signing was all about leadership and ensures that Farrior retires a Steeler. Pittsburgh rarely gives lengthy extensions to players 30 and over, yet the team made the rare exception in this case.

Morning take: Boller has three turnovers in two preseason games -- and that's with limited playing time. If Boller stopped turning over the football, he wouldn't be in this predicament.

Morning take: Life in the NFL can be harsh. Maxwell was well on his way to solidifying the No. 3 receiver spot last week. Then he suffers an injury and now he's on the street. Yikes!
