Does this mean we can sign Kemo?

No surprises with Humpal though.

I'm sure Simmons is a good guy, but as a fan...I won't miss him and his revolving door at RG.

Thanks for your contributions Kendall. Good luck.

Ooh. Now this could be exciting. Doesn't he count something like $4-$5 million against the cap? I wonder if this was done to make room for bringing in a decent veteran on the line. Or maybe to make room for Harrison or Holmes' big jackpot. Which admittedly would be less exciting.

This is only 2 years after he signed a pretty big deal with us.

This is about the fastest bailout of a big contract the Steelers have made since the Jason Gildon contract.

This is why I don't blame players for going for what they can get...when they can get it. Go get'em BMAC and Nate.

Perhaps we will see another signing here in the next 8 hours...Kemo?

No way they sign Canty. He's going to cost too much. Not the Steeler way.

I hope that Kendall's exit means that Kemo is about to be signed.

We need to remember....we won the Super Bowl with the guys we had. Kemo was a first year starter. He's only going to get better.

Its the official rebuliding of the offensive line. The 2 guard postions are now officially open for the taking. Maybe we are keeping Kemo and let Stapleton be the RG??? I hope not on the latter but we will wait and see. As for Humpal I wish the young man good luck and maybe we will see ya down the road in the USFL or UFL. And to Kendall its been a pleasure having you at RG and heres to you finding a new employment oppurtunity.

too bad about humpal too. I thought he might replace foote next year....

as for Canty he'll never come to Pittsburgh. he's asking for a lot!!
