    Question for all resident salary cap experts. If this deal stays as is what does it do to our cap situation? I take it Woodley is now a Summer cut for sure.

    I don't think I'm too thrilled with this turn of events. We all knew something had to happen with Worilds and Woodley, but Worilds signing on for almost 10 million wasn't an option that I was thinking would come to fruition. I think the Steelers are going to end up with a contract similar to Woodley's that pushes money to the end and eats up cap space. So, are the Steelers looking at 5 years 40 million like Kruger? Plus Woodley?

    Dang, the next moves should be interesting to say the least.

    I think Ike should be considering where he's going to be playing next year and probably Woodley as well, Troy might hang around, but the Steelers will be on the hook for a big salary there.

    I think this just means Woodley's gonna get a chance to play on the right this year.

    I think they can move some of this money around for cap space.... I hope so, I don't think Worilds is a 10 mill man.

    Way over paid for Worilds, one year, 9.1 mill, can't justify it. This is pretty disappointing to me, I hope he produces, but what if he's injured again?

    I don't think the Steelers are planning to pay Worilds over 9 mil. I think they fully anticipate getting a long term deal worked out.

    But, realistically how do you see that being structured? Kruger received 40 million for 5 years, whether he's worth it or not is irrelevant, he got it.

    Exactly what I'm thinking. Signing a 1-year deal doesn't preclude him from signing a long-term deal. It just means he's off the table for other teams. I think Worilds inking the deal means he WANTS to be a Steeler and this is a showing of good faith.

    I would imagine there is little to no signing bonus with being tagged, so, it would benefit the player to get a long-term deal with a signing bonus -- i.e., money NOW.

    I don't know Deville, even without a longer deal with a signing bonus, JW still stands to make $10 million if things stand as they are now. Even without a signing bonus, JW making $10 mill is still a nice payday, even if it's not long term. That's not chump change.
