    I wonder if he'd go for something like a 3 year, $12 million dollar deal. Gives him money now and lets him hit free agency at 28. Could be a win-win.


    That was spoken like an agent! That would be the counter to a lower #. Try & get the term down so if he outplays the contract....He could become a FA again in his prime for a bigger payday like you stated.

    That's about dead on where I see it. I think you don't exceed the Lewis deal but your 5/20 is a good deal for the Steelers. 6 mil SB keeps it easy to get out of if.

    this deal will come back and bite us.
    average/good player getting top dollar.
    when decent players leave in the future because we are cap strapped, look no further than this deal.
    1) CB D Dennard
    2) OLB R Shazier
    3) DE J Ellis
    4) WR M Bryant
    5a) OG D Yankey
    5b) OLB J Tripp
    6a) RB D Archer
    6b) NT D McCullers
    7) WR J Janis

    He has started a total of 10 games.

    During his only 3 starts in 2012, he created more turnovers than any single corner on this team has had TOTAL since the day Cortez was drafted.

    I am not suggesting we break the bank, but I offer an upper mid range starter deal which would be a huge raise for him. Worse case he is a capable starter. Upside possibility is that we might have a probowl caliber guy on the relative cheap locked up long term.

    Worse case if we don't sign him is that he DOES show he is worth way more than we can afford and walks. Or we are FORCED to pay him big bucks to keep him.

    We then have an ancient Ike on a STEEP decline and nothing beyond the host of late round picks and free agent cast offs we currently have. I know Lake talks these guys up, but you DONT wind up getting picked late or dumped from former teams because of anything GOOD about your game.

    Actually Allen finished the year pretty strong showing growth. If not Allen then who?

    Reports are saying that Pouncey's deal surpasses Alex Mack for the highest paid contract in football. Sure, 5 years for $44 million is more than 5 years for $42 million, but Mack has $26 million guaranteed. Pouncey's signing bonus is half that amount. We ended up with a much better contract. Of course, it helps that the Steelers structured this contract in a way that was suitable to them, while Cleveland had to match the contract that Jacksonville gave to Mack. Pouncey cap hit for 2014 actually decreases slightly with this deal, while Cleveland had to swallow a $10 million cap hit right off the bat.
