    Update:
    In the last decade:
    25% of the league has won a super bowl. The steelers are not one of them.
    20 teams have as many or more playoff wins as the steelers.
    25 teams have won at least one playoff game, none have a worse playoff win percentage than the steelers.

    I just think it's odd that he's making less than last season. I assumed we could have kept him on the same weird "veteran" contract that allowed us to pay him more than his cap hit like last season. But I'm not clear on exactly what the details of that contract are.

    I've been thinking the same thing. I feel like Brian Branch is a very possible selection and it's going to frustrate a lot of folks around here.

    I'm not 100% clear how the "4 year vet" contract that we had for Edmunds works. But it sounds like each team gets something clost to $1.5M per year that they can split between guys that qualify. I think they at least have to be on the same team for the last 4 years.

    Dave at the depot said that the only two guys that qualified were Edmunds and Gentry. And that maybe we were trying to bring them both back and split that bonus money (that doesn't count on the cap) between them.

    But even if we were only giving it to Edmunds, it becomes hard to match a contract that just goes a bit above the value. Because if the contract is too big, I don't think they qualify for that any more.

    So, I think if the max 4 year vet contract was something like $2.3M (making up numbers), we'd actually be charged something like $1.0M against the cap (which is pretty close to zero after displacement).

    But, if we match a contract that was $2.4M or $2.5M, then we don't get that ~$1.5M "extra" reduction in cost because the contract doesn't qualify anymore. So that contract costs the full $2.5M against the cap (or something a little more than $1.5M after displacement).

    If that's true, then maybe that's why we wouldn't make what appears to be a small increase in a contract for a guy who's at least a genuine NFL starter?

    Branch makes sense if we want him to flip between safety and nickel corner. Supposedly already does that. Nickel is a legit need.

    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:
