If we have one weakness its at center and guard, dont get me wrong I like costa, but will take him time, this way you might be able to move gurode to LOG and hartwig at center; so would you trade crayton for hartwig? Steelers give Hartwig permission to seek a trade http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/09/03/steelers-give-hartwig-permission-to-seek-a-trade/ Posted by Mike Florio on September 3, 2010 2:09 PM ET With rookie Maurkice Pouncey bouncing former starting center Justin Hartwig to the bench, the Steelers are going to try to do with Hartwig what they did with Sean Mahan after Hartwig supplanted Mahan as the starting center. Per a league source, Hartwig has received permission to seek a trade. If Hartwig can't arrange a trade, he'll reportedly be cut. So why would a team want to trade for Hartwig when he's going to be cut? At a base salary of $2.08 million for 2010, a team may want to trade for the contract in lieu of having to try to bid against other team(s) for his services on the open market.
