No way that Smith makes it another year; he has not been a factor at all so far and hasn't helped the team out much.

That contract extension to Colon just keeps looking more and more genius, doesn't it?

it was a fair and reasonable deal. colon was low risk for an injury. pretty sure he was hurt on an second effort/extra effort play.

colts extension of p. manning was 10X worse in regards of risk (and making him the highest paid player in history)

Trib-Review joins in on the question of why Smith stayed while Starks and Flozell were cap casualties

Starks, a two-time Super Bowl winner who arrived at training camp with a fairly fat body and a really fat contract. He and his $5.14 million salary were immediately cut.

In hindsight -- and as former Pitt football coach Walt Harris once so eloquently put it, hindsight is always "50/50" -- the Steelers would have been better off releasing veteran defensive end Aaron Smith and his $4.5 million salary. They had better depth on the defensive line.
