Default Re: Aaron Smith gets 1 yr contract extension...

Trib-Review joins in on the question of why Smith stayed while Starks and Flozell were cap casualties

Starks, a two-time Super Bowl winner who arrived at training camp with a fairly fat body and a really fat contract. He and his $5.14 million salary were immediately cut.

In hindsight -- and as former Pitt football coach Walt Harris once so eloquently put it, hindsight is always "50/50" -- the Steelers would have been better off releasing veteran defensive end Aaron Smith and his $4.5 million salary. They had better depth on the defensive line.
