I don't understand how this works. How can they "cancel" free agency
if the season ever starts. All the FAs have no contracts, hence can't
return to their old teams, period. No one is playing without a contract. If
the season ever starts, something still has to be done with all those FAs.
You can't just wave a magic wand at it.

From what I understand, they'd be forced back to their current teams on a one year deal with a 20% raise over what their base was in 2010.

"Jason Babin(notes) has won the gamble he took by signing a one year deal with Tennessee.

The defensive end racked up a career-high 12 1/2 sacks and earned his first Pro Bowl berth. But all his hard work may not pay off in a multimillion dollar deal.

NFL labor strife will likely mean Babin won’t be wined and dined on an owner’s private jet during free agency.

With the collective bargaining agreement expiring March 3, Babin and other would-be free agents face the very real possibility that they get ordered back to their old teams at the bargain basement price of 120 percent of their last salary. Play another season, risk serious injury. And wait."

I really hope you're right.
But usually when we allow players to walk, it's because we have quality backups ready to step in and take their place. I've seen our backup DBs.
And I hope they're not expecting a rookie to step in to be the No. 1 corner.

More times than not, the Steelers make the right decision regarding players. Whether he goes or stays, I'll trust that the Steelers made the right decision.

I don't know man. I would think the players would not agree
to this, as part of whatever they end up agreeing on. I would
think this element will be part of the negotiations, because
having FA go down to this would be a giant rip off to so many
of the players. I can't see them agreeing to this.

If we do lose Ike, they will be forced to go heavy CB in the draft. They
will probably take 1 in the 1st and another in the 4th or even 3rd.
Some how they will make it work out. If McFadden and Polamalu get
fully healthy, that will help a lot.

Yeah, I really don't know. That article is the only thing I've seen about it. But if the lockout extends into July or August, that would complicate matters I would think. We're almost into May now.

I think Pitt will offer a fair contract, if he doesn't want it... Then see ya.

I hope we pick up a decent corner from free agency as well as in the draft because if Ike goes, we're gonna be highly exposed at CB. I really wanna see more from Crezdon Butler. I think he has serious potential and hopfully he'll learn more of the defense and fights for a roster spot.
