    You have to think the Steelers will do SOMETHING, right? Surely they can't trot Boz out there on Sunday against the cheaters?

You can't even say that you will bring in competition and make him prove himself at camp. He has a $2M roster bonus, and that is usually triggered either Mar. 1 or June 1. Decision to cut him loose should be made before the bonus takes effect.
    Does the cap penalty change depending on when he's cut? If we can spread that penalty out, it's easier to cut him.

    It doesn't. The way his new contract was structured he's a $4.8 hit against the cap in 2019 if he's cut.

    well that’s not too bad. Cap hit won’t take effect for 91 more years.

    IMO, this season is already lost. They’ll wait until the offseason and bring competition in to camp. Best kicker wins....

    Well Tomlin said he’s bringing in kickers this week for tryouts, including Boswell. Sounds like it’s best man wins the job.
