    Absolutely, that's a gimme. I always believed that the Foster contract was intended as a one year deal that they spread to two in order to spread out the cap hit. I think that it might also be what...

    Speaking of the TE position, Christian Scotland Williamson has been on the PS with an exemption for 2 full seasons, and they have kept him around. I'm not quite sure if they keep him around because...

    Yes. Any conversation regarding blowing up the O should begin with the statement: "If the team determines that Ben cannot return from his injury, and is forced to retire then...."

    The only way you blow it up is if you are convinced that Ben is DONE. Done as in never coming back.

    I think you have to consider saying goodbye to Pouncey. Maybe yes, maybe no but you must explore...

    That's what I think. I think that Pouncey is already playing below his cap value and Haden is still above or at the line, but when corners decline they decline fast. I hope it doesn't happen anytime...

    In 2021, Haden will be 32 years old with a cap hit of $12.6M. If the Steelers release him, it will be his final year and he will bring a cap savings of $7M.

    If there is no extension/restructure...

    I've always been more of a "wait and see" kind of guy. The guy is an athlete, grew up with a coach as a dad, and I like to use the third year as a "show me" year for young players. After two years of...

    I think that the support that he brings to Ben will be felt on gamedays moreso than during the week. Sometimes a separate set of eyes seeing what the D is bringing at the QB is needed.

    They would not have forgotten him. IIRC PFF does not have him rated so high and considers him to be an edge rusher who is in line to be vastly overpaid in FA. IIRC the player mentioned who is most...

    Maybe, but in that case you are also ignoring the team who was cheated in the ALCS, or the ALDS. Maybe another team makes it and beats the Dodgers.

    RFAs - The Steelers have 5 RFAs. They are:

    Mike Hilton
    Matt Feiler
    Jordan Dangerfield
    Kam Canaday
    Zach Banner

    IMO Feiler is a must sign (first round tender, $4.6M, try to sign long-term),...

    While I've been vacationing between posts the Steelers signed 11 players to futures contracts. Those are usually at or around the minimum salary ($585K). They also signed Skipper to a 2 year deal -...

    From a realistic cap perspective, that move is no big deal either way. He is a backup earning a mil and a half. Cut him and replace him with another backup earning a mil and a half. Not much effect...

    If Ben can't go then you can't benefit from extending him. His three year contract, signed last year, contained a guarantee of $37.5M. $12.5M of that was accounted for in 2019. There is $25M signing...

    I would not cut him, and mentioned that he is only being brought up due to the favorable cap savings. Even with that I put him at only a 5-95 chance of cutting. He ain't going anywhere.
