Aaron Smith will be gone, I know that. Maybe we can't sign Wallace. I don't know who else will have to go to clear cap space

SIGH, people, we were 10 million over this last off season, and the Steelers signed 4 guys to long term deals. You guys do know about the the new contracts coming next year, the salary cap is going to blow up. Relax, Steelers signing key guys isnt the issue, especially their young players. The issue they need to control is turnovers on this team.

Aaron Smith and James Farrior, I believe will retire. Steelers will release Kemo, Foote, and mcFadden. Keisel could take a pay cut or get released as well.

I just can not see the Steelers letting a bonafide All pro at reciever go. And with Sanders and Brown coming into their own, you do not let those guys go when you have a Qb in his prime. Mendenhall will have to have a year like last year to get signed, otherwise I can see the Steelers letting him go, although that would be a burner if we did.

and how exactly do you think they got under the cap ?
they restructured some other deals like bens. so what they've done is push some money owed this year into the future. sooner or later you gotta pay the piper.

last nights jets vs dallas game was the highest rated sunday night reg season game ever.

the money will come. but it is true that some players will retire or be shown the door and be put on a plane to arizona.

The piper has a lot more leeway come the 2013 season with new tv contracts.
