Pretty sure we could cut loose most of the players mentioned and still miss the playoffs...
Hampton, Colon and Woodley -- dead weight
Polamalu, Harrison, Keisel, Foote -- too expensive for what we can get out of them from here on out
Wallace and Mendenhall -- too much baggage at this point
Starks -- best OL player we had this season, try to re-sign
Lewis -- promising, try to re-sign
Foster --I'd like to re-sign
I realize cap implications make it unlikely to cut some of the dead weight. We'll probably end up keeping some of the aging and/or underperforming big-salaried
players, and cutting some of the more productive/promising players. Get ready for another year of frustration.
Hampton isn't justified. Starks is. Starks is the only OL to play every game and he was the overall best performer at the hardest OL position. It would be foolish to let him leave.

- Charles Harris-OLB, Missouri
- Rasul Douglas-CB, West Virginia
- Chris Godwin-WR, Penn State
- John Johnson-S, Boston College
- James Conner-RB, Pitt
- Nazair Jones-DT, North Carolina
- Garrett Sickels, DE/OLB, Penn State
Too many unknowns at the tackle position not to re-sign him.
