Thread: Bye, Woodley

  1. #51
    Isn't Keisel getting cut here also or at least taking a pay cut? I don't know many 35 year old DE's that are producing these days. Luv him in all but it is time for a couple of these young guys to step up.

    Pretty sure his contract has expired so they don't have to do anything.
    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!

    A long-term extension for Worilds would actually save money on the cap rather than requiring more room. With the transition tag, he counts $9.754 million against the cap. On a long term deal, his cap hit should be much less than that.

    if you were Ben, wouldn't you want to get paid at least as much as Joe Flacco?

    I'm sure I would, if I were ben

    what will the rooneys feel comfortable with for a QB who will be in his mid 30s, with his history, and the talent around him?

    all I hear from the experts here is you can't pay for past performance. Could be very interesting going forward.

    Herm Edwards said on Mike and Mike this morning that the league has a real issue with QB salaries and how it is going to make teams non-competitive because you have to cut so many good players to keep your QB. He suggested that the league has to have a cap exemption for one player on the roster because of the size of QB salaries and cap hits. I think they said Drew Brees is consuming something like 26% of the New Orleans cap.

    I suggested something similar during the CBA discussions that a team need to exempt one of their veteran players from the cap or only take a partial hit.

    Why didn't the league and union see this coming? Why don't those idiots just listen to me

    I still think you have to let him go after this contract expires. He's got two years left...will he even make it through those years?

    And if he is pissed off and wants to play for a big contract elsewhere, the Steelers will only be the beneficiary of that by way of having him play motivated and also a comp pick in return.

    20+ is too much for a QB at his stage in his career with the style he plays - it will hurt the team for years.
