And I'm very shocked actually to here these things from all you steeler fans. This freekin' nature trained his butt of the last pre season to get back in shape. He flew to Arizona to make kind of an special oxygen training to get back in shape for 2012. Then right before pre season it was obious that he needs knee surgery and he worked again his butt of to come on the field as fast as he can and played great through the strech of the season. Definitly not 100% healthy all year and now you say he's not worth it? Common give this dude his well deserved pay check and let him come back for another one or two runs at the Vince Lombardi.

Another word maybe to Hampton and Woodly who actually had a way worse year then James. Hampton came in not healthy either and had great games in the 2nd half of the season and Woodly also was unhealthy all year very sad but not much you can do there.
$5M cap charge is a lot to a team that is currently over $10M cap limit.

We're about 10 mil under if we restructure LaMarr, James, Ben, Antonio and Lawrence. Do you really want to be 15 under with a rookie OLB or Worlids although I'm a fan of the game he brings to a table as a sub. I want the monster in place because we're making a hugh step away from the Lombardi without him.

You have a valid point there. Can Worlids step into that ROLB spot on a permanent basis for next season?

But if letting Harrison go allowed the Steelers to hang onto other guys like Wallace and/or Lewis, then Harrison has to go. You don't keep an aging LB over two young guys.

No but I would over Lewis, even if next year is Harrisons last I think he gives them a better chance to succed than Lewis and Lewis is replaceable. Not for Mike he would be a big loss over the next 5+ years. But I think there is a chance to go with James and Mike under the cap. Lewis can go if it needs to be.

Non the less I do think Lewis played a heck of a season and would be a loss too.

I believe Harrison plays two more years and retires. Worilds then takes over.

We need to keep both Harrison and Polamalu. They are the two best at forcing turnovers. In my opinion, Woodley needs to go. LaMarr looks fat and slow out there. Woodley's cap hit is over $13 million next season and the second highest on the team (behind only Big Ben). He didn't look very good all season and either needs to restructure or get cut.

If anyone needs to restructure - its Little Debbie Lamarr. He's worth 3 valuable roster spots at the moment.
