2010 Updated Steelers Salary Cap Information
*yes, i know there is no cap, so spare me the details*
information on the steelers salaries, and cap hits has been awfully hard to find the past 2-3 years.
this chart at steelersdepot looks pretty good though-
Steelers 2010 Salary Cap & State Of The Roster
according to the chart, the steelers would be at $124,000,000 towards the cap (if you count all 68). last year we were maxed out at like $127 mil. if there were a cap in place this year, it would probably be about $136- $140 mil. it sounds too good to be true.
i was suprised to see we are in this good of shape, especially considering all the big money extensions we have given out the past 2 years. things definitely look good for woodley and holmes, yet i havent seen a recent comprehensive chart that projects all the years/cap hits for each individual players contracts.
unfortunately this chart also doesnt show last years base salaries and total cap hits vs. this years.
biggest 2010 savings- we have rid ourselves of the dead money/salaries of m. smith and k. simmons. willie parkers contract is expired, and ward is no longer costing 8 mil/year. starks is actually cheaper too. the extension of hampton is pretty much a wash.
ben goes up to $12 mil
miller doubles but is still cheap at $4.6
ike taylor is $6.5 which is still relatively cheap considering he is the one the rooneys always go to when it comes time to restructure.
again i cant vouch for these numbers, and it is just a baseline. i am still suprised we wouldnt have much cutting to do if a cap were in place.
randle el- $1.7 mil base salary with a total $2 mil cap hit.
i think there will be plenty of teams willing to take on sweeds $800,000 cap hit if (now looks more like when) he is traded/released.

Re: 2010 Updated Steelers Salary Cap Information
Last year we were nowhere close to maxed out. We were like $5-$6 million under the cap and we sat on it. Maybe even more than that, because I don't know whether it counts Ward's restructuring. Going into this year, we would've been something like $20 million under the cap with three guys to re-sign, one of whom (Reed) by definition cost us less than $3M. We were in good shape.
