That's what I don't understand, how do we not have the money? I will admit that I really just started learning about how the salary cap works, but the Steelers NEVER sign a big free agent and although some of our players make good money, the Steelers usually don't give out big $$$ contracts. So how can the Jets and other teams buy up all kinds of expensive big name free agents and if we want one in the last 3 or 4 years then we can't afford it? I know that is the situation, I just don't understand it.
