Default Re: Out of all the signing this year who threatens the Steelers?

I no longer see these new contracts being that big of a deal.

The cap was:
$52.4 million in 1998
$75 million in 2003
$102.5 million in 2005
$116 million in 2008

Then once these new TV deals get rolling, expect yet another increase.

Now as far as upcoming teams, you cannot expect many to really do to much. Big free agents don't usually make a big enough impact to completely change a team. Look at the Eagles last year. I'd be more concerned with teams with new coaching staffs than teams with new overrated players
