Default Rodney Bailey back in Black 'n Gold ?

Steelers | Bailey expected to sign
Thu, 16 Mar 2006 12:13:37 -0800

Mike Sando, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to sign free agent DL Rodney Bailey (Seahawks).

For Steeler fans who don't remember we drafted him in the 6th round in 01 and in 02 he had a good season with 5.5 sacks at DE.

Yeah, Bailey was with the Steelers for like 3-4 years I think. He's good for depth, a solid guy...and being an ex-Buckeye never hurts!

Salary-cap shuffle


The Steelers were $8 million under the salary cap yesterday morning before several transactions were recorded in the league office.

Among those not yet counted (and their salary cap numbers for 2006 when available) are Jerame Tuman ($1.05 million), Brett Keisel ($1.5 million), Barrett Brooks, Rodney Bailey, Ryan Clark and Jeff Hartings.

All will lower the club's available salary-cap room except for Hartings, who took a pay cut from his $4.75 million compensation due this year and had his contract extended by one year to 2007. Hartings' new contract reduced his salary and roster bonus from $4.75 million to $2.2 million; he also received a signing bonus of $1.75 million. His salary in 2007 is $3.6 million.

Director of football operations Kevin Colbert said he did not think the Steelers would have to restructure any more contracts merely to save salary-cap room.
"We restructured and extended Chukky [Okobi] and Jeff. We're good."

Only 51 of the highest contracts count against the salary cap at this time of year. That means every higher contract added replaces a lower one, usually a $275,000 minimum-wage first-year player. Thus, while Tuman, for example, will count $1.05 million against the cap in 2006, the cap room would change by $775,000 (his cap number less $275,000).


Duce's deal

While Duce Staley's salary was reduced this season by $1 million to $1.5 million, he can make some of that back in performance bonuses.
Staley would receive $500,000 if he rushed for 1,250 yards, or $250,000 if he rushed for 1,000 yards or $100,000 if he rushed for 900 yards. He would receive $100,000 if he scored nine touchdowns, another $100,000 if he rushed for 500 yards and also caught 35 passes, and another $100,000 if he made the Pro Bowl.

Staley's salaries of $2.69 million in 2007 and $2 million in 2008 were untouched by the restructured deal.

Adding draft picks


Kevin Colbert thinks the Steelers will pick up three compensatory draft picks when they are issued by the league later this month. Compensatory picks are doled out to teams based on a complicated formula that counts players lost in free agency vs. gains in free agency, the money paid those players and their performance in 2005.
The Steelers have all seven of their draft picks, one in each round.

"We're probably going to have, we hope, 10 draft picks," said Colbert. "We don't know that for sure, but that's kind of our guesstimate. We have a chance to get the extra picks, we don't know where."

Teams cannot use compensatory picks in trades, but they can use their own. Colbert said they will consider doing that to get better draft choices. They have the 32nd and last pick in each round, before the compensatory picks are issued.

"Always. The lower you are the harder it is, but we went from 26 to 16, so we'll always, always investigate that. We'll always investigate the other way, too."

Quick hits

First in line for Antwaan Randle El's job of returning punts will be Ricardo Colclough

Colbert said ...The Steelers have no interest in Terrell Owens or Keyshwan Johnson.

First off, Bailey is DL, not a LB, and he was only signed for depth now that we lost Kimo.

Brandon Joe is an excellent blocking FB, and playing Tessel's system prepares him perfectly to play in ours...but I'd say he's also just on the roster for depth.
