    "WOW! Ryan Clark could be released?"

    Could be a cap casualty.. Siting that injuries could have something to do with it- What do you all think of this?

    I think it's a terrible move.

    He's one of our most valuable and underrated players and there is little-to-no depth behind him. Even if the team thinks Robert Golden is a potential starter, where is our depth?

    Agree. This is an awful move and his salary is pretty reasonable.

    There was an article on BTSC suggesting that a release might be forthcoming because Clark recently deactivated his twitter account.

    Looks like anyone over 30 on the steelers team should worry....except for Ben.

    If this happens it has to be heavily influenced by his recent health issues and IMO is an indication that they intend to clean house. If we are going to clean house on defense this is the year to do it.

    I saw that last night as well and was shocked. I think you may be right Ovi, they may be cleaning out more guys than any of us thought. My only question is who the hell is going to play FS next year? Will Allen?
    Ryan seemed like he was a great leader, something the Steelers sorely need.

    I think that we may see that the front office has assessed that talent wise they are the third best team in the AFC North with a few of their key players on the downward side of their careers. I think it is logical to assume that we are not ready to win the AFC North next year so they may be deciding that now is the year to make major changes and set ourselves up for another 6-7 years of being competitive...one step back two steps forward. This could be the year they fix the cap so they have the maximum flexibility to move forward when the big TV money hits next year versus just trying to sustain.

    I totally agree if that is the assessment they have made. Both the Bumgals and Ravens are better than us right now.

    Tank the season and just groom the young guys, get the top pick in the 14 draft, pick AJ McCarron. I want to see his girl and mom at the games in the black and gold.

    Jadeveon Clowney should be the top pick in the 2014 draft, and it shouldn't be close. I have no idea what Clowney's girl and mom look like, but I'd prefer to see them at the games in black and gold, if that means that Clowney is out there eating opposing offenses for lunch.
