Default Cushing's positive drug test could affect Steelers

The drug suspension of Houston's Brian Cushing could have an effect on the Steelers moving forward.

The AP has announced it will revote not only on the 2009 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award, but also the All-Pro team as well.

Cushing finished with enough votes to make the second team as an All-Pro, but his five votes were one more than Pittsburgh's LaMarr Woodley and two more than James Harrison and Chicago's Lance Briggs.

It likely won't affect Woodley, who got four votes compared to five for Cushing.

But let's supposed that all five of Cushing's votes go to Harrison and Briggs. They would move past Woodley on the All-Pro list and be the two second-team members.

The Steelers wouldn't ask for Woodley's All-Pro bonus money back - I'm assuming he had something in his contract about that - but they would also owe Harrison and All-Pro bonus as well.

It's all minor stuff, but it's the kind of things we're left talking about at this point in the offseason.
