    Once the vets are cut, released or unsigned, chances are the Steelers will have the money available to keep the young stars on board.

    If nothing else, the FO has shown it knows how to juggle the cap.
    I agree. The Steelers locked up a lot of their big $ players last year. There are a lot of vets that will either be asked to take a major pay cut or be cut ... I think Colbert & Co will put together a solid deal. The ? will be whether Wallace accepts it.

    The Steelers very rarely lose players they want to keep.

    OK you and I dont have a crystal ball but if he wants top 5 WR money, do you pay it with Brown and maybe even Sanders needing to be resigned in the next two years?

    Where is everyone getting the idea he's after top 5 WR money?

    He'll get paid, and paid well. And when he opens up the field for Brown & Sanders, we'll all think it's worth it.


    Unless he drops a catch.

    then he'll be a bust.

    However,....with a QB like Roethlisberger i do not think ANY receiver could be as effective and or productive as they possibly could be in my honest opinion.
