They're cleaning up a LOT of cap space.

For what?

Heyward, Pouncey, Allen... and BB.

Why hasn't Ike Taylor been restructured or released? Seems like that would be done BEFORE Miller, Polamalu & Brown since he is the least valuable of the four.

We have no idea whether or not they are working on that as we speak. It could be that they've been talking about it and haven't yet come to an agreement. I'm certain that Ike won't be playing for what we are scheduled to pay him next season. He will either take a pay cut or be let go, but considering Dan Rooneys' affinity for Ike I'm sure he would prefer the first option.

Maybe so. Seeing that Foote and Clark, maybe Kiesel are goners and Troy and Ben aren't really vocal leaders, Ike may be the old "glory days" vet that gets a stay of execution. Hopefully they cut his salary in 1/2.

Im not a fan of restructuring every one. It helps for the next season but hurts in the future

Im really thankful for what Ike has done but Im going to be really pissed if he doesnt take a significant pay cut and we pass on Gilbert or Dennard for 3-6 round projects at cb who will play 10 yards off the wrs the majority of the time

To be honest, in the LeBeau defense if there is no pressure from the LB's we could have Revis Island and Richard "Busta Rhymes" Sherman and it wouldn't make a difference. I wonder how much Ike's demise is related to poor LB play starting with Foote's brain not on the field as well as Jones not being ready and another Woodley season of injuries.
