I just saw the news via twitter. Announced with Starks.

With his salary, releasing ARE was almost a given. He clearly wasn't getting the job down as a punt returner, and this must be a vote of confidence that Sanders is fully recovered.

El made a great grab in the SB which is probably the highlight of his second tour of duty with the Steelers, so at least he went out on a somewhat positive note.

I wish him the best of luck. He was always a prodessional here. He worked hard and never complained. Something that you could never say about Plex. Obviously the steelers believe that A.Brown can do the job that El was asked to do, and do it at a cheaper price.
But that does not mean El cannot be effective on another team. And I wish him the best. Thanks Randel for all your dedication here in the Burgh :tt1

Evidence that Ike DID NOT take a "hometown discount?"

Clearing cap space?

We were $10 million over the cap BEFORE signing Ike.

Evidence that we were 10 million over the cap before we signed Ike and Susiham. We had to free up 10 million before we signed anyone. There will be more cuts before next week, or they will rework some contracts.

If anything, it's evidence that the Steelers took advantage of the lack of a cap last year to bring in some veterans whose salary would be unsustainable with a cap (ARE and Foote immediately jump to mind).

The nation wishes you well ARE. I hope your career continues and you do very well on an NFC team. :tt1

P.S. I can't believe we are signing Suisham. :HeadBanger :HeadBanger

that's too bad, I was looking forward to Week 2 of the regular season against the Seattle Seahawks and watching ARE throw another TD pass to Hines Ward.

you know, for old times sake... :tt2
