    I think Colon's dead money is 3.6 million only saving 1.9 million against the cap (5.5 - 3.6).

    They better wait to see how the knee responds

    Well, considering he is a walking injury and essentially collected checks for sitting in the tub the past 3 years, i don't think they owe him any special treatment by 'leaving him hanging' if it saves them a crapheap more money.

    Regardless of how you feel, it's not the Steelers style.

    Name the last high priced player they released after June 1.
    Schiavone's Race Career:

    Starts- 9
    Wins- 1
    2nd- 4
    3rd- 0
    Other- 4

    Prizemoney- $28,050.00

    The Steelers might not have the luxury of Cap Space to wait & see.

    He's signed thru 2014. Why would you rush to extend him before seeing how his knee is?

    Agreed ... That's just dumb on the Steelers part. Maybe Colon should stay and take 4+ million dollar paycut? He hasn't earned a damn thing the past couple of years and basically robbed the Steelers with his overinflated salary.

    It's a business just like the players always say it is. You think Lewis, Wallace, etc are doing the Steelers any "favors"? Please...

    You trade instead of releasing a player .... see the Pats.... see the Ravens.

    They get something in return. They operate like a business just like the NFL is and they're still well run organizations just like the Steelers.

    I think you are right. Unless Colon takes a significant pay cut he will be cut and the Steelers are famous for doing "what is best" for departing players. Miller restructure/extension is worth the risk. Adding a year & restructure could free up in the neighborhood of 3 mil if they convert 4 mil + to bonus. 1 year would put him at 33 so perhaps they may add 2.

    Miller will count 7.9 mil on PUP or IR. He showed he was in his prime. I understand the concern of the knee but he is signed through 2014. They won't cut him before then so relief for the organization is the goal. It is Miller so the risk on the "person" is minimal.
