Someone will pay him but it won't be us. We can't afford to sign a backup guard let alone a starting corner. If it was my call I would cut Taylor and give Lewis his money

I would not be surprised if that happens this off-season.

Because of our cap situation I see it being very hard to keep him. He's going to be one of the best corners in free agency and they always develop a high market esp in this era of a passing league.

To be able to sign him we would mosl likely have to get rid of Harrison, kiesel, colon, Clark(maybe) or Troy, and not sign foster.

So before we talk about money I would ask who you would be ok with getting rid on the team to clear cap space to sign lewis

I expect us to cut Harrison, Keisel & Colon and like I said above I would not be surprised if Ike is cut also.

I would expect those minus Ike to be cut.

I suspect our pass rush to be the same last year, so having Ike for 2 more years and having Lewis and Allen. Three good corners is crucial.

we could throw dollar figures around 'til the cows come home - but we have no idea whatsoever what Colbert & co. think they'd actually pay him.
We would have to make a couple of those big-time releases people have been saying we might to even think about entertaining one of these "mid" line offers being thrown around in this forum. We're in a cutting mode - not a throwing-money around mode.

Could happen though. I fully expect the Steelers to light up the fan base and p*ss alot of people off and release a couple of the "untouchables". I think they're finally catching on to the fact that they've held on to more than a few players 1-3 years too long - retaining them for nostalgia and emotion reasons and its coming back to bite.

The most logical answers for Colon, Keisel, and Harrison... and hopefully these will help them re-sign Keenan Lewis.

Brett Keisel: Steelers have two choices: ask Keisel to take a pay cut that would save the team about $1.8 million or cut him and free up a little more than $2.8 million in cap space.

James Harrison: Harrison counts more than $10 million against the Steelers' 2013 salary cap. If the Steelers restructure his contract they'd only save less than $3 million. So the options are he takes a pay cut or we cut him.

Willie Colon: He's scheduled to count $7.6 million against the cap in 2013. If the Steelers release him after the Super Bowl, the team would only save $1.2 million. However, If they waited until after June 1st, they would save a total of $4.425 million toward 2013, but would suffer a penalty of $3.225 million against 2014. There's another option here too, we could restructure his contract that is $5.5 million this year into a $4.5 million signing bonus and save $3 million in cap space.
