    The only one of those extensions that has been used is Heath's... all the rest would still free up cap space

    Its still WAY to much for Worilds on a one year deal. If no one signs him he can hold them hostage for nearly $10 millions.

    It would be one thing if he were a star player...von miller, aldon smith,...ect, sure id bite on that. hes not even close to being worth $10 million for this season

    IF they part ways with Wood, then I will reserve judgement. If not? I just don't know WTF is going on.
    It likely means they aren't counting on getting anything from J Jones again this year. Need three OLBs for a rotation.
    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!

    They're just waiting to see what he is offered in FA. Someone will offer him something - they either match or they don't.

    No way does Worilds stay for the 1 year at 9.75M. Worst case scenario they pull the tag off of him and move on with 9.75M freed up to spend as needed. This is just an insurance policy that doesn't hurt them at all to use since they can do away with it at any time without penalty.

    Why does this mean Woodley is staying? The transition tag is often used as part of the negotiation. They could still cut Woodley.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Thanks Hawaiiansteel...Exactly like you stated. If someone REALLY wants Worilds now...They will have to pay him $$$$$ to cause the Steelers not to match. Which more than likely will net a '15 3rd. I'll take Worilds.

    Could they use the transitional tag on Woirlds as leverage to negotiate with Woodley and get him to reduce his contract? I don't know if that's possible, but if that's what you're suggesting, I'm on board.

    I think this is too much money to spend on Woirlds. Hopefully they use it to leverage Woodley then let the highest bidder take Woirlds.

    Yes, that's what they can and will be doing.
    Just because JW has a 1 year offer right now doesn't mean a team can't negotiate a deal
