That is the key. Casey will be back making a lot less money.
Are you sure about that? His salary is 4.89 million for this season, but he counts 8 million against the cap! If they try to cut him, and resign him to a cheaper contract, won't they take a huge cap hit? For the same reason, isn't he a poor candidate for re-structure? I can't see the Steelers doing any deal to extend him.

I might be wrong, but I think he's going to be taking home a lot of $$$ from the Black and Gold this season, even though he will probably spend a lot of it sitting on the sideline.
