John Clayton is reporting on his Insider blog that the Steelers gave Andy Lee a 6 year, $7.1 million offer sheet. There are apparently no poison pills in the deal and it will come down to how the team values Lee as a punter. Personally, I think he's been a great punter and might very well be worth it. I believe there was actually a game where Nolan gave him the game ball and a loss where was the team MVP of the game. Thoughts?
