    I wonder if they'd be willing to unload Paul Posluszny as well. He'd be a better replacement for Foote than Vince Williams or Kion Wilson. And adding two Nittany Lions in the same day (after trading for Levi Brown from the Cards) would certainly intrigue Steeler fans.

    IMO Newsome is the best GM in football. His talent evaluation and acquisition puts Colbert to shame. Colbert is definitely in the top half of the NFL but Newsome is at another level. I hate he is doing it for the Ravens!!!!
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    While that would be NICE, I can't imagine the shenanigans we'd have to pull off salary cap wise, to make that work too.

    Question now becomes who is losing their jobs in the NFL because of this? I'm betting we see a surprise cut of someone we never expected!

    I'm betting Cotchery is one of the guys gone to make the cap fit. Also wouldn't be surprised to see Gilbert go although IMO he has done better than Adams.

    Would Redman be cap relief? If so, I'd buy him a bus ticket back home ASAP.

    I'd keep the linemen - they were already short due to injury - can't see ditching gilbert or adams at this point.. Levi's just another sucky tackle to fight with them.

    I wonder how the cap works... He already got his SB, although, it's even distrubuted over the life of the contract - i just wonder if that changes when a guy is traded (like it is when a guy is cut).

    In any event, with Leveon healthy now, I'm guessing RB would be the position of choice to cut, although, I'd like to see WR, just to get Wheaton the ball more...

    I agree, Newsome is good. He has his misses, too, but a case can be made that he is the best at what he does.

    I believe that the remainder of his signing bonus charge gets immediately accelerated onto this year's cap for the Cardinals when they trade him, but I'm not sure about how that effects the team he is going to. Do we just get charged with his base salary against our cap going forward?

    The balance of his salary ($1.3 million or whatever it is) would come off the books. I can't see anybody rushing out to grab him if he is released, and even if he is signed elsewhere, I'm not too worried about it.
