Steelers Salary Chart
 
Attached is a link to a chart in today's P-G on Steelers salaries

http://www.post-gazette.com/download...rssalaries.htm

Also attached is a link to a related article

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05354/625129.stm

Unrestricted FAs next year are Charlie Batch, Verron Haynes, Chris Hope, Brett Keisel, Kimo von Oelhoffen, Clint Kriewaldt, Quincy Morgan, Antwaan Randle El, Deshea Townsend, Jerame Tuman and Barrett Brooks. Sean Morey and Ike Taylor are the two restricted free agents.

Unless he agrees to some serious rework on his contract, say goodbye to Jeff Hartings, who counts $8 million against the cap next year.

With regard to bonuses, Maddox is due $100,000 if he is on the roster in March - hopefully he gets cut in February :)

I`m really surprised that Hartings knees have held out this long. I remember two years ago him saying that he would be lucky to get two more seasons from his knees. He has no cartlidge left in the knee. Bone on Bone! OUCH!

I think Hartings and Bettis retiring will free up so much cap space (including the cap being raised as well for '06) that the Steelers will actually be in better shape than most years...

In looking at this list:
The unrestricted free agents are: Batch, Verron Haynes, Chris Hope, Brett Keisel, Kimo von Oelhoffen, Clint Kriewaldt, Quincy Morgan, Antwaan Randle El, Deshea Townsend, Jerame Tuman and Barrett Brooks. Sean Morey and Ike Taylor are the two restricted free agents.


I think we keep Batch, Haynes, Hope, Keisel, Kriewaldt, Townsend and both Ike and Morey. Tommy is obviously gone...

i really hope we keep hope, ike, and townsend, gotta keep that secondary together they are gonna get better. ARE i wouldn't seeing back but not as a number 2 reciever, hopefully we can pick up one in the draft or free agencie. tommy better be cut he is worthless. batch will probably come back cause he isn't going to start anywhere so he might as well stay close to home and be our number 2.

Batch, good backup, sign to 4 year contract for about $500k a year.

Bettis is gone.

Carter makes $697k next year? He hardly plays. Restructure or cut him.

Colclough makes $978k next year? Restructure or cut him.

Frazier is a bargain.

Harrison, sign him to a 3 year contract for about $800k a year

Hartings is a ten year veteran but can still play but since he is getting into the meat of his contract he is likely gone. We aren't going to pay him $8m for one year with a young Okobi making $2.2 and waiting to take over. Jeff may restructure his contract to play one more year though, which I wouldn't mind seeing.

Haynes gets $659k? That's too much. Cut him and draft a RB in the 1st or 2nd round.

Hope we need to sign as long as he doesn't want way more than he is worth. Sign to a 4 year contract for about $1m a year.

Iwuoma, we need a backup CB, probably worth $570k

Kemo is a bargain and may just start next year in place of Simmons.

Keisel, good backup, sign to a cap friendly 2-3 year contract.

Maddox has to be gone. He just has to be. Go after Josh McCown for about $1.2m a year. If not, draft a QB in the 4th or 5th round.

Quincy Morgan, sign him to a very cap friendly 3 year contract with incentives for performance but draft a WR and have them
compete in the preseason for the #2 WR spot. If Morgan doesn't get it use him as #3 and have him run back kicks.

Polo, sign him NOW to a 6 year contract before anyone else comes sniffing around. I know we are going to have to pay him but, PAY HIM!

Porter, he's not worth $5.4 million. I would ask him to take a pay cut (call it restructure), if he won't accept it then let him test the market, draft a LB in the 3rd round, and play Frazier next year.

Randel El, offer him a 4 year contract for the same amount he is making now. If he doesn't like it then let him go elsewhere. We should draft a WR anyway, 1st or 2nd round.

Simmons, keep as a backup to Kemo next year. Draft an OG in the 3rd or 4th.

Staley, I would ask him to restructure (pay cut) if he isn't happy about it then keep him anyway.

Stuvaints, cut

Taylor, sign him to 5-6 year contract. Pay him.

Townsend, sign him to 5-6 year contract. Pay him.

Tuman, sign to 2 year contract for about as much as he makes now.

Olhoffen, in his 12th year now, sign to 3 year contract.

Wilson, cut him. Ain't worth $2.4m.

Re: Steelers Salary Chart
 
Can't quote all that, but there are a few things off here...

The Steelers aren't going to be inking any deals for players whose contracts aren't up, with the possible exception of Max Starks

Carter is a nickel back and has played okay in that role. He's older, though, so cut him AND use that money to pay Colclough. You don't cut contributing players going into their 3rd year, especially at CB.

Harrison is worth more than 800k.

Hartings will almost certainly retire, but, if he doesn't, he'd have to restructure. I think him and Jerome are going to hang it up though...

Forget Josh McCown. They'll sign a QB late.

Porter bought another year by his versatility.

ARE will be gone...too many teams will like his slot play and his return abilities, and the Steelers aren't gonna pay what he wants.

Staley will be cut.

Townsend has absolutely no chance of making this team for next year. Forget it. He's at the end of his contract, is aging, and will not be resigned. Some other team will gladly overpay him. The Steelers have too many young CB's on the team.

Von Oelhoffen is just as gone.
