I'd keep James and Troy ONE more year IF they are fully healthy.
Otherwise time to move forward.

Last August, Harrison underwent arthroscopic knee surgery, which was slow healing, causing him to miss the first four games of this season. When he came back, he did not return to100% the entire season and it showed in his play on the field. Harrison claims that he will be back to full speed next year, but that has yet to be proven.

The questions are: Do the Steelers keep an aging linebacker, with a bad knee, that will cost them over 5 million dollars against the cap in 2013? Do they replace him with Jason Worilds, a 2010 second round pick, who, coming of an injury himself, excelled as a backup this season?
I say we wait and see if Harrison can get healthy over the offseason and if he can't then Jason Worilds is the Replacement until next years draft as we other issues to deal with in this draft like Cornerback, O-Line, D-Line & Inside backers with Foote possibly retiring.

I'm afraid Harrison and Troy are both done. Neither has lived up to contract value the last 2 years and both are due to make more in 2013. You can't carry dead weight with a 47 man roster and a tight salary cap.

We all knew this was going to be an issue when they gave him a 6 yr contract when he was what 30-31? They must have had a plan at the time.

The front office is going to have to figure out who's worth keeping, who they want to invest in, and all that. I think Harrison should take a cut, but I don't think that will ever happen.

That is correct. Anything by the fans is pure speculation. It could go either way. The FO is going to have to make decisions this year. Its time for more "change". Better change.
What i DO think will happen is that there will likely be at least one, if not two, huge off-season jolts/announcements to come out of the team office that will shock everyone, no matter what they "say" they're expecting.
No question we have to trim a whole....bunch....of money.

Even tho we lost he looked like the old Troy against the Bengals, he was everywhere

Yes......he'll want to have at least one good year before he retires, so hold onto something for 2013.....same with Troy.

We're already 12 million over the cap so we're definitely cutting someone big

I hope so

but I'd cut fatass Woodley's 295# in a heartbeat, Worilds can miss just as many tackles, cheaper too

This situation screasm RESTRUCTURE! Both, IMO, will restucture and we will keep both. At best, we keep troy. I couldn't imagine him playing elsewhere! I know he's not the same guy but when healthy he is still a beast!
