Default Justin Hartwig Signed By Steelers

The Panthers relesed C Justin Hartwig. He is only 29 and coming off a knee injury. This guy has only been in the league for 5-6 years. He was a solid center for the Titans and the Panthers. What do you all think about him in the middle of our line?

I think he is worth a look as a short term solution...and I emphasize short term. That being said, seeing the emphasis that the Steelers are putting on getting younger, I seriously doubt that this guy gets a look from them.

Not all the time. Many times they release a solid guy because they have a younger solid guy for less money.

If that is the case, with the trouble we have at center... I wouldn't be too unhappy, but better get that knee checked out.

That is exactly what happened in this case...

Ryan Kalil will start at center. The Panthers had planned on having Hartwig slide over to the guard, but he was never keen on the idea so they tried to trade him. When they couldn't find a taker, they cut the injury-prone lineman.

NFL minimums increased $40,000 across the board from what was scheduled in 2006. The minimum salary for rookie or first-year players is $275,000; second year is $350,000; third year is $425,000; fourth year is $500,000; fifth-year through seventh year is $585,000; eighth year through 10th year is $710,000; and 11th year and longer is $810,000.
