Default How to keep Faneca & Polamalu

http://www.steelersalarycap.com/arti...Projection.htm

im sure i have quoted or cited this site plenty of times (thanks AZ steeler) but it is pertinent to this weeks talk and is the most comprehensive view of the steelers cap situation i have found. this will keep our current team intact (i am still amazed at how on point the author was concerning ALL the steelers off season moves- cutting porter, keeping a. smith, etc.)

this plan works for 2007. unfortunately, i feel it is shortsighted and pushes us even closer to the inevitable... salary cap hell, where in 08, we are purging all of our talent , like the post sb titans, and drafting high like they were last year.

I think it goes deeper than just the Benjamins with Faneca at this point.

Even if Faneca and Tomlin were pen pals....Faneca wouldnt be happy to play for 4 million this season...

His peers are making almost double him....he is better than they are....in Alan's eyes IMO he probably thinks that is unnacceptable

faneca will be traded and then troy will be signed, i would be amazed if polamalu wasnt signed to a 6 or 7 year contract before the start of the season. ill predict 6 yr/30 mil.

5 mil/ year is a little off. he wont go for it, considering what the 9ers gave n. clements.

The answer is simple. You don't. Faneca will leave after next year most likely. He wants to follow Grimm to Arizona, and I am alright with that. But I would wrather trade him this year than let him leave without anything in return next year.
