    It's $5 million this year, but there is no cap, so as long as the Rooneys are willing to pay that for this season, it doesn't hurt the team by taking cap dollars away from other needs. After this season, we can determine whether or not we want to re-sign him. If Gay, Lewis and Burnett progress this season behind Ike and BMac, then we could let McFadden go next off-season. If not, we could re-sign him. It buys us time to see how our two rookie corners from last year (and Gay) progress without having to rely on any of them for anything more than nickel and dime duty, except in case of injury.

    Steelers, McFadden talking extension

    With defensive back Bryant McFadden back in Pittsburgh a year after signing with the Cardinals, McFadden could be staying longer than the one year that remains on his deal.

    Per a league source, the Steelers and McFadden are talking about a possible extension. He was traded back to Pittsburgh during round five.

    McFadden is due to earn a base salary of $4.75 million in 2010.

    i thought that was the pick they got for holmes. that was a stellar move by the FO. basically trading holmes who they were just going to release and getting a solid cb like Bmac
    We also got Arizona's 6th round pick in the BMac deal. So essentially, it was Santonio Holmes for Bryant McFadden and a 6th round pick (we took WR Antonio Brown with the Card's 6th rounder). Not such an awful deal anymore.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Agreed...if someone would have presented me with that option I would have thought long and hard about it. I know some people think Mcadden isnt that good. I would disagree despite his season last year. But, as the #2 without Troy...Gay is that bad...statistically one of the worst in the NFL.
