    Sure, Haden is a good CB but that doesn’t negate the 5 TD’s he gave up. I think that stat is being overblown as a reason for his release.

    It was his cap hit.

    and extending him would’ve reduced his cap hit this year AND saved us from having to find another CB. If this was WR it wouldn’t be an issue but CB is the one position we have struggled with and this could really hurt us moving forward.
    Tomlin’s coming back so what can you do?

    that was his base salary, and I realize he got a signing bonus.

    do you know how much he was to receive from the Steelers this year?

    This idea some have that the Steelers FO always makes the right decision and always looks out for their own is hilarious.

    I truly believe we misplayed this and tried our FO tried to paint a different picture. If we never intended to keep Nelson due to cap hell that’s fine but the timing of it made us look a bit sensitive.

    I mean, asking for an extension during your last year shouldn’t piss off a FO or make them throw their hands up and immediately release Nelson.
    Two sides to every story. All we heard was Nelson’s side.

    Nelson has done this before, I'll side with the Steelers here.

    during the time of him wanting an extension with the Chiefs, there was an incident in the lockerroom where a reporter was asking him questions about the game, and Nelson’s ONLY response (over & over) was “Pay me.”

    his cap hit was $14 mill this season..

    which is why I say he was never going to get paid $8.25 mill by us either. We didn’t have the space for his cap hit.

    Makes a lot of sense. I still say he will end up losing money ala Leveon Bell.

    Perhaps.

    But if Nelson was better than Haden who had given up 7 TDs it would be Haden who's salary would be cut for saving.

    It was about savings...where that savings came from was based on PERFORMANCE.
