    23 passes defended last year, good for 2nd in the NFL
    INT's are only 1 part of the equation

    Actually after signing Gay they are back over the cap.
    2015 Draft

    1) P.J. Williams-CB-Florida St.

    You are correct. I hadn't realized what the first year cap hit for Gay looked like. However, it does confirm for me they don't believe Lewis will be back.

    They still have to tender RFA's and have 4 million under the cap to sign draft picks. They still need about 7 to 8 million more dollars to do this.

    Lewis is a goner.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Yes, Interceptions are only part of the equation. But....you don't usually create that many turnovers in three games without being in the right spot.

    Turnovers are most valuable and defending passes is obviously a good thing.

    Ok... you would rather keep old-timer Ike (will be 33.5 by the start of the season) who is proven throughout his entire career that he can't catch a cold over a guy that is going to be in his prime and got 1 INT last year?

    Makes sense.

    They might not even tender all the RFA's. But if they do, all RFA's & ERFA's, it'll cost the Steelers (on the lowest tender for each player) just over $7m. That is close to what the Steelers would save in restructuring Woodley. If they restructure Harrison too, they might have room to even sign a couple of low priced FA's.

    Chances of signing Lewis appear very slim at best.

    ????? I'm talking Allen over Lewis. It is not simply a case of Taylor or Lewis. Taylor is under contract. Lewis is not. Lewis is going to get an offer structured in a manner the Steelers won't be able to match.

    I like Allen. He played very well in his two starts to end the season. I think the Steelers value him much more than Lewis.

    I think Harrison is gone and they will eventually restructure Woodley to squeeze in a low level free agent.

    Some on this board say the Steelers can easily re-sign Lewis, but I have to agree with you, it doesn't look likely at all.

There has to be movement on both to retain Lewis on top of that. If they can't get Lewis done before he hits the street they may look elsewhere for draft pool if Lewis signs elsewhere.
    Actually, teams now have three days to negotiate with other teams' free agents before Free Agency begins. You can negotiate with your own free agents at any time. It's the new "legal tampering" window. In the past, tampering was supposedly illegal, and yet teams still somehow signed big money free agents at 12:03 on the first day of free agency, even though agents and GM's weren't supposed to have any contact prior to that time. At least three days worth of "legal tampering" makes such contracts appear to be above board.
