Default Jerome in negotiations

The Steelers and Jerome's agent are talking this week about redoing his contract for another year. obviously with his cap number, its either restructure or be released.

Seems like a good sign that he is maybe leaning towards coming back..but he could still easily retire, even after the deal is done, this just covers the ass of the Steelers to get under the cap, incase he wants to come back.

Yeah just saw this officially yet we have been saying that it will come down to numbers. Just interesting that his agent has said that should he get cut before a contract that it will "change" things. Seems though that Bettis still loves to play. Just wish I could get info on his weight. Is he keeping up, or falling off?

Food for thought...Super Bowl XL will be in Detroit, Mich. Bettis might not want to pass up a chance to play in front of the home crowd.

from reading in the press. Jerome will play one more year. Just a money thing so we have to do something by Wednesday. ESPN will hire him if we don't.

ESPN is courting jerome pretty big to come be an analyst. and its now way past wednesday and no info as of yet. Obviously he isnt cut yet, so they must be pulling out all the stops to get this thing done and bring him back.

Mar 2 is the deadline when cap money takes hits. We need to find out by then. I bet Bettis is taking the weekend to think. Thh two will talk Mon, then Tuesday announce the deal. Bettis plays one more year at just under 2 million. with lots of bonuses for post season.[Note - not an expert on cap bonuses and whether this works, but it sounded good in case Jerome reads this board before he makes his decision]
