I also thought this mean Athony Smith. We have too many Smiths on this team....

Anyway, I think Hartings will probably leave, and although it's sad to see him go, I think it's his time to. Also, isn't Gardocki taking up some room CAP wise too? I would like to see something done with the LBs CAP wise as well, I'm not really sure what yet.

Every year someone comes up with a question mark and they restructure. I don't think Smith is the type of player to give us any problems restructuring anyways. He'll go with the flow IMO.

I too thought it was Anthony Smith. I was curious to see how a 2nd year guy could be a cap casualty already

not sure i'm willing to give up on wilson just yet. he's been a disappointment, but we have no one ready to fill in for him. (depth chart appears to be ward, holmes, and washington without him - that scares me a little).

maybe arians will be able to include him more in the offense since he was the WR coach?

Thing is, I would rather give him up as well, for very good DB and a decent DE.

I really think that our CB's need the MOST attention this offseason, followed by our OL.. however, I think we have the personnel to fill in our OL sitting on the bench right now.

Cutting Aaron Smith would not be a wise move. Nor would it be wise to move Porter this year. When his contract is up he can walk but not yet. He is needed as a vocal leader

I'd rather keep Townsend if he restructures

Cedrick Wilson should get the boot, Hartings will probably retire, Gardocki will go too, Logan will be gone

Then there is the Running back situation...do you let Davenport go or re-sign him and let Haynes go, but we really can't keep both

I also think that it might be time for Starks to take a walk...just give him the mid-offer so we get a pick out of the deal

I realize everybody thought that it was Anthony Smith, but Aaron Smith is a little more important to this team. We need him.

Tom

porter is nothing more than a mouth. cutting porter will be the same as when the steelers cut gildon. the guy is old, inconsistent, overrated and overpaid.

i really like davenport - i'd keep him over haynes if i had to choose (if the money is there, but he might show some loyalty in that the steelers gave him a chance).

i'm torn on porter...for a guy who wanted more money he sure didn't play like it. he's not worth $6 million, so he's certainly not worth more.
