I really hope losing Gibson to keep Smith on the roster doesn't come back to haunt us!

How would Ryan Clark know about any surprise cuts coming?

I read somewhere else that the comment was in response to Goodell and the CBA, which makes more sense:

It's a bit of a leap to think that has anything to do with a Steeler player being cut.

Rereading it in that context it seems more likely the tweet is about the CBA, however, don't they have to be under/at the cap tomorrow?

Look who you're asking.

I just don't believe that Clark would be clued in to any surprise cut coming. A veteran very well could be cut (and probably will be), but I don't think Clark's comment was about it.

Eh, I guess I should have thought about that one. I think the deadline was August 4th, could be wrong, usually am.

But, yeah, true. Anyways, I hate weird cryptic statements (or in this misinterpretations).

With that said, I still wouldn't be surprised to see Smith or Foote cut. Or even Farrior ... sorry, bro.

I'm sorta half ready for the Farrior cut (although Foote starting over Potsy seems a little ridiculous or even Sly at this point ).

I'm torn on Farrior being cut and replaced with someone like Foote. I've never been a big fan of Foote, and I hate to mention him and Farrior in the same sentence. But Farrior isn't getting any younger, and his best days are behind him. If they feel the defense is good enough to lose Farrior in place of Foote, and if they can save money, it might be the right business decision. I'm too lazy to look up what both of them make, but age alone makes it something you have to consider.
