    but then if you were, we would have the #1 pick in the draft every year and we could draft our new franchise QB...

    I'd add CB to this list if Spoon doesn't come back (and maybe even if he does).

    I do think that they pursue one, it mostly depends on what they think about Spoon. If they think he is a long term starter then they go after him. If they go after Haden it is a one or two year deal with nothing remaining on the cap when the deal is done. Haden is definitely not a Steeler in 2024 so all money tied to him should be gone as well.

    Interesting year for FA corners. There are quite a few older big name guys - Haden, Patrick Peterson, Kyle Fuller, Xavier Rhodes, Jimmy Smith, Chris Harris. Some team might think that one of these guys has a season or two left for a run at a ring.

    There are also a few younger guys who could be expensive #1 corners - JC Jackson, Carlton Davis

    And a few guys who have shown that they might be ready for prime time - Witherspoon, Kevin King, Charvarius Ward, Eli Apple, and a few more I'm sure. This is typically the aisle that the Steelers shop in. Try to find the player who has not demonstrated his value yet, but you think he could. It would also fit with team building towards being competitive a couple of years from now.

    Cap continues to shrink from original estimates. The Depot now saying it's under $38M which includes the rollover and dead money hits.

    I don't know if they have good candidates for restructures either. Watt?

    Spend about 20-25 million on two good young defenders, DL and CB. Save the rest for next year and cut the expensive players who aren't producing.
    Tomlin has a losing records in the playoffs. Every Steeler has a winning record during the regular season. Figure it out.
    6 years and counting, no playoff wins. Yet 25 other teams have at least one playoff win is this span of time. His record on hiring good OC's and DC's is terrible. Enough is enough.

    I wouldnít mind seeing us try to upgrade his position and think a S can be very versatile. Iíve also wondered if he could play as an ILB in the modern game and be more effective. I know heís a little small, but he probably plays at a bigger weight than Farrior did and I would take a Potsie in our D right now.
    but then you may be sacrificing solid tackling for a safety that gambles to make plays on the ball.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    that sounds like a lot of money for 2 young players. Who are they?

    I wonder if that's just accounting for the other 8 roster spots at league minimum to get to the top 51 or something else. OverTheCap says $41.9MM but they're only including the 43 guys currently under contract (including Ben and JuJu's contracts that are about to void) and the dead money from Melvin Ingram and Quincy Roche. They have us at roughly $32.9MM when taking the other 8 guys into account. Alternatively, they may be accounting for the rookie pool money which is a net hit of roughly $3.3MM.
