Default Who will we keep?

Now adays it seems like new and more teams are cleaning house every year now, With that being said who on the steelers do you all think will stay here the rest of their carrer and for how long? For example Hines Ward I think he will finish here mabey 2 or 3 more years and James Harrison wont finish here and will leave after this season.. Who do you think and why will they stay or why not?

Hey Newz - how 'bout we keep this thread on topic? Bettisfan isn't talking about the Texans here. You've all had your fun with Bettisfan - let's stop beating the dead horse, please?

Thanks.

If they'll let Rod Woodson go, I can see them letting Troy and most of the others go. Hines will retire after no more than 3 more seasons (he's already mentioned it). Ben's the (ever ellusive) franchise QB so he stays.., barring injury or total lack of performance of course. Farrior's getting older and could end up retiring as a Steeler.

Your right about letting Rod go i guess they would let any one go, and that article someone posted the other day saying the steelers drop vets and clean house alot makes me think it will for sure happen which i hope it does not. Troy and Hines are such fan favorites how can they do that to us?!

Hines Ward will spend his entire career a Pittsburgh Steeler. I don't see him playing more than three more years.

Ben Roethlisberger will spend his entire playing career a Pittsburgh Steeler. His new contract almost gaurantees it.

I think Troy Polamalu will be a Steeler for his whole career.

And I think Harrison will too, barring any more arrests for domestic violence.

Farrior has a good chance to, but I think this is the last year of his contract. If he still has the fire, I can see him latching on somehwere else for a year or two. I don't think we would resign him, we wouldn't even sign Clark Haggans to a backup contract.

I think at the end of Willie's contract we'll let him go. He'll want a lot of money, and I don't think the Steelers will look to keep him, unless he takes a big paycut to stay with the team that signed him as an undrafted FA.

I think there is a good chance Ike can, but I can also see him walking as a FA when his contract is up.

I think Foote will eventually leave, I have a feeling within the next few years he will be replaced as a starter here, and he won't want to sit the bench.

Heath Miller is an exceptional pass catching TE. I think he's rather underrated, and I think he could leave at the end of his rookie contract...especially if we regress in using the TE as a receiving option.
