    Unlike many speculative Burgh scribes, Schefter typically knows what he is talking about.

    So why not cut him now so they are free of his cap hit next year?

    How much dead money next year?

    Why not bite the bullet and take the hit this year and free ourselves of the dead money next year?

    If Woodley isn't a post June 1st cut, his cap hit would end up higher than his cap number...you might as well just keep him on the roster...

    You would cut him not to save this year's # but all the money he is due in future years.

    As a post June cut, how much in dead money is there next year?

    There will be some next year...but, the number is too high to absorb this year...especially if they can't come to an agreement with Worlids...it would be a total of $23 million on two players, neither of whom is the franchise QB...

    I know he's been hurt but I can't help but think cutting him is really going to bite us in the ass.

    I have a problem with any player that can't keep themselves in shape to help prevent injury....apparently so do the Steelers. I'm not really heart broken over his release.

    If we were losing the 2009 Woodley, I'd be bummed (13.5 sacks). But we are losing a player who has a total of 9 sacks in the last two, most recent seasons, and couldn't bother coming in not being 30 lbs overweight in 2012. He basically stole Rooneys' money.
