    Ed Bouchette (on 2/16) – said Steelers “truly seem intent on keeping le’Veon Bell and, indeed, signing him to a long-term deal.”

    Here’s how it could go down:

    Say they were willing to give Bell an average of $15 million over four years or $60 million total. It could break down like this: $24 million to sign, $1 million salary this year and subsequent salaries of $10 million, $12 million, $13 million.

    The $24 million bonus would count $6 million annually against the cap over each of the four years. So his cap this year would be $7 million — that $6 million from the bonus plus the $1 million salary.

    I don't know how the hell they finesse these cap numbers but that versions sounds pretty good to me.

    Both doable and manageable within the cap structure despite the "gloom and doom' on the board

    when I see these cap numbers I'm wondering if folks just don't understand (myself included) how it's possible to make this work.

    I'm sure some will say 7 mill could still be used to find the next Mean Joe Greene the draft or FA but man, seems like folks aren't nearly as good at this GM stuff as Colbert and company.

    This is post of the year!

    I never ever thought on how easy to resign Bell and still have money for FA this year!

    If the Steelers do give him that kind of contract, we had better hope Bell stays healthy...because that is a huge dead cap charge...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+€# up and wear it.

    That is why the Steelers have done everything they have had to in order to retain Omar Khan. The guy is a salary cap "savant"
