    I think Mike will have a contract by camp.

    seems much more likely now that we have freed up $2.2 million by cutting Jonathan "Rollerskates" Scott.


    Steelers Release Offensive Tackle Jonathan Scott

    The Steelers released veteran offensive tackle Jonathan Scott, the team announced today.

    Scott spent the past two seasons with the Steelers, starting 14 of 28 regular-season games and three of four postseason contests. Prior to joining the Steelers in 2010, Scott spent time with the Buffalo Bills (2008-09) and the Detroit Lions (2006-07). Scott was originally drafted by the Lions in the fifth round (141st overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft out of the University of Texas.

    With Wallace's tender ($2.7M) and Scott's salary ($2.2M) I'm all in if Wallace is signing for $4.9M.

    I do not think that is the case though. They probably needed to cut Scott to get the cap space they needed for Starks. Has anyone heard the terms of his contract yet?
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
    2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
    3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
    7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
    7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner

    I have not heard the Starks contract details yet (the picture he tweeted wasn't big enough):



    We already had about $3.5 million in cap room before cutting J. Scott as well. And Wallace's contract will be structured such that he gets a veteran minimum salary in year one (plus the pro-rated portion of whatever the signing bonus turns out to be).


    1 CB Vernon Hargreaves Florida 5-10 204
    2 DT Austin Johnson Penn State 6-4 314
    3 SS Jeremy Cash Duke 6-0 212
    4 LB Jaylon Smith Notre Dame 6-2 223
    6 WR Moritz Boehringer Germany 6-4 227
    7 OT Brandon Shell South Carolina 6-5 324
    7 RB Tre Madden USC 6-0 223

    UDFA
    DE David Onyemata, LB Ian Seau, FS Jordan Lomax, CB DeAndre Elliott,
    QB Jeff Driskel, TE David Morgan, OG Spencer Drango, OC Mike Matthews

    ... Jets fan here ...

    ... curious, how bad do all you think Scott is? ... any particular areas that you could break down for me? ...

    ... i ask because our RT Wayne Hunter is very bad in pass protection ... a couple times a game he gets completely fooled and caused Sanchez to get creamed many times last season ... he has a slow first step and he wasn't able to stay step for step with the speed rushers ... i'd probably say he's borderline below average/average as a run blocker ...

    ... if money wasn't needed for Wallace would you liked to have kept Scott? ... do you think Scott would be even a slight improvement from one of the worst starting RT's last year? ... finally, do you think other teams would be willing to offer similar $$$ to what you guys were going to pay him ... or do you think we may be able to sign him for a vet minimum salary? ...

    ... i appreciate any reply ...

    Dang...if we'd known you all were THAT desperate, we'd have probably traded him to you for a draft pick...
