    Agree. I wouldn't let Bell go for nothing, but if you get picks in return, you use one pick to replace Bell and another to help the defense. And you...

    Fair point, but he only played in 7 games. But I should amend my previous statement to say that he had garbage QBs for a majority of the year.

    That would help the Steelers this year, but backloading the deal that much really complicates things down the road. That would put the Steelers at...

    Agree. If the Steelers release Haden, he saves $8 million against the cap, but creates a big dead money hit of $3.8 million. A restructure without an...
