Default Re: Big Ben's bonuses and the cap....

What are we paying Duce Staley to show up in street clothes? Mind you I love the Duce, I think he's still got a lot of game left. But where does he fit, with Parker emerging?

Kimo-wants a raise, give him a 3yr contract
Hope, deserves a long term contract
Taylor, deserves a long term contract
Tuman, 2 or 3 year contract for same money he makes now
Harrison, deserves a huge raise

It also depends on whether Townsend and Randel El depart, if they stay it's probably a done deal that we lose Joey.
Hartings will retire, and i believe that nullifies any contract obligations.

We've gone around on this merry-go-round before, but...

Kimo is too old. He either needs a 1 year deal or let him go.

Hope I think we may pay because there are no viable replacements in FA, and a rook won't be able to step in at his level, but he'll be expensive to keep.

I think Townsend will be cut loose. I fully expect his role to be nickel back and McFadden to be the starter. If Deshea wants to start, let him go. If he wants to stay, he'll get back-up money.

I'm not sure about ARE...if the rumors are true, and teams covet him, he may become overvalued, and the Steelers are not going to pay big bank for a #2 receiver.

Whether or not the bonuses go against the cap, and they don`t, who cares we are in the Super Bowl!

Yeah, as a fan you get attached to some of these players and would love to see them stay, another reason Jerome deserves all the praise for taking the big cut, etc. But in today's league you can't keep them all and the Steelers staff has always done an excellent job reloading the gun versus buying a new gun.
