    Hampton could be released after June 1 and spread out the cap hit...

    I guess it depends on how well he recovers after ACL surgery...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.

    In Hampton's case, there are no more years in the future with which to spread out the hit, since this is the last year of the deal. His cap hit would be the same whether he was released before or after June 1. Kemoeatu, on the other hand, could have his cap hit spread out if he were released after June 1, since he has 2 years left on his current deal.


    If Roquan Smith falls to late teens, trade 1.28 & 2.60 to SEA for 1.18 & 4.120:

    1.18 LB Roquan Smith
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    4.120 RB Royce Freeman
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling
    7.246 OT Brett Toth

    If not:

    1.28 LB Leighton Vander Esch
    2.60 C/G Billy Price
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 RB Ito Smith
    7.246 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling

    At least one answer is this... can't imagine the possible scenario in which Mendenhall continues under contract with the Steelers beyond this year. One less guy to pay.

    Most things that I've read project the cap to take a big jump in 2014 when the new tv contracts hit. If that is the case, then we're just moving money from now where we are tight, to then when we'll have more flexibility.

    Frankly, just keep restructuring Ben until he's done, then cut him and have a dead year from hell. We'll suck like Indy and get the top pick.
    If we can add a couple more SBs before that then I'm all for 1 bad year.
