View Full Version : When does the other stone turn?

02-08-2012, 01:17 AM
Long time no post, been lurking decided it was time to post again.

Now that things are starting to settle good and bad when do we kick Omar into overdrive and start attacking this salary cap issues to line up for the draft. I thought most of this had to be completed, restructures, cuts and such even though we would like to hold off had to be done now or before March 1 or early March. It will help us in determing where there maybe other holes to fill or maybe where we can make do.

The upcomming draft looks like there is a lot of mid round 2-4 type talent but where we are selecting in the 1st nothing that really suits our pick for the most part, I think after this salary cap is pared into place we will have a clearer picture of where to go. Looking forward to a busy and exciting off season. :tt1

Ford you got a couple months on me but many 1000's of posts. Love reading the board havent felt like there is much to add to the conversation until recently.

It seems like the Haley hire stirred the pot, the possible suspension of a young TE many saw good things in, etc; however no one was asking the question that I wanted to know an answer too. When is all the inevitable shiza to hit the proverbial fan, vrooom... I feel like a kid on Christmas eve ready to turn the page and get it on, B&G style. :Steel

While us fans would like to see what is going to happen already, the FO knows what they are planning. So, we can believe that any plans on which holes need to be filled are in place regardless of the fact that cuts have yet to be announced.

Thanks RB... you to SFTO. I hear what you are saying, of course the front office knows, part of the fun in the internet is speculation.

Steelers Create Cap Space by Renegotiating Woodley’s Contract

Wexell posted that Woodley's contract has already been re-structured and expects Timmons and Ben to follow. From hhis post today:

"* According to our numbers man Ian Whetstone, who humbly credited another numbers man at another site here on our message board, the Steelers have restructured the contract of LaMarr Woodley and cut $6.5 million off their cap number.

Ian had predicted last month that the Steelers would be able to do this, and he predicts it will happen with Lawrence Timmons as well. Throw in the fact the Steelers will be able to restructure Roethlisberger and you can see why the Steelers need not worry about cutting everybody with age and a hefty salary, as has become the accepted media myth."
