Post Nothing major planned for June 1 for the Steelers

The NFL's free agency flea market begins tomorrow, but the Steelers have no plans to sell or buy.

What once was called the league's second wave of free agency has flattened out to become almost an afterthought for most teams. June 2 is the first day teams can release a player, usually an overpaid veteran whose value has faded, and delay the hit on their salary cap into future years.

Last year, for example, the Steelers released linebacker Jason Gildon, who had three seasons remaining on his contract, on June 2. The Steelers plan to release no one tomorrow. And, unless another team cuts a player of particular interest to them, they have no plans to sign anyone.

"At this point in time, we don't anticipate making any changes,'' said Kevin Colbert, the Steelers' director of player personnel. "But we always leave ourselves open to any player who may present themselves in the remaining weeks before training camp."

In other words, never say never. Last year, for example, starting outside linebacker Clark Haggans' hand was broken a week before training camp opened. That prompted the Steelers to sign linebacker James Harrison, who had been planning to get on with his life's work. Harrison developed into the team's top backup outside linebacker and now is the No. 1 backup at three of the four linebacker positions.

here's the rest

I like the change in philosophy going on. Teams used to like to spread out the hit(like a credit card), now teams are in love with just taking the hit all at once(straight cash, homie!). I like it cause you used to keep a player around a little longer than you liked just cause of money. Now you can just say thanks, but no thanks.
