My thought is he needs to be a June cap hit, gamble on the likely hood he doesn't get an offer at his current salary, which wouldn't schock the crap out of me. Then bring him back on a market value two yr contract non- guaranteed, in the 4-6 mil per yr range. Then we use the cap savings to land some decent FA talent to fill in holes. And brother do we have holes.

Also, repeat this process with Colon. Actually, we should have done this LAST year with Colon.......
Why with Colon? Unlike Woodley, Colon is replaceable (Foster).

Oh, don't get me wrong here, we DO need Woodley to shore up that spot. The problem is, he isn't shoring up much of anything, although he does on occasion come up with a clutch play now and again. When you focus on him, play in and play out, game in and game out, he really does a lot of nothing.

That said, when he sets his mind to, he is a beast. Unfortunately, that isn't often enough, not even close to often enough, to warrant a $61 million dollar contract. The size of which is hamstringing us from landing the talent we need elsewhere. JMO.

Sure, but at a MUCH lower salary as a bench warmer, you got some positional flexibility, a guy that already knows the system. More subjectively, he is a good lockeroom guy, is Ben's best friend on the team, and would be great practice fodder to help hone our DL.

My only problem with him is he's overpaid. OK, so he needs to drop one or two pounds.... and if he did, he'd probably stay on the field, instead of his annual landing on the IR list.

Foster is not a replacement for anybody. Foster, if nothing else, is a mind numbingly medioccur talent, with exactly zero upside, slower than a..... Colon!!!! Dang, you could eat lunch waiting for either one of those two finishing a 40 yard sprint......

Well that will certainly make everything better as the Steelers form a circular firing squad and now have players blaming coaches for calling out Woodley - sounds like Foote might have some issues with Butler since all the players worship LeBeau and Tomlin certainly would not be leaking to Ron Cook

I doubt Ron Cook would cover for a coach by attributing the quote to a player

While we are at it, it could be that Cook cooked it up all by himself......

even if a player told him his opinion on the QT, Cook should have kept it to himself. The only enity to gain from this story being published is the the paper. It certainly isn't going to drive Woodley to be a workout warrior, or Steeler team inter personel relations, or the player, or coach that said it.

As silly as it sounds-- I do think the NFL players read these message boards and react to what is said about them. Come on-- with the egos these guys have, you don't think they are on the web reading what everyone is saying about them? I know I probably would-- jsut for curiousity's sake if nothing else.

I am sure everytime he pushes that bar up towards the ceiling, he is replaying that "he was barely on the field at all" comment in his head. Expect Woodley to have a big year this coming season....
I hope you are right and if so:

Ben sucks, Pouncey sucks, our RB's suck, our OL sucks, our LB's suck........

Yup. I disagree with Obama sometimes and I'm a Democrat. I also disagree with the Steelers management sometimes, doesn't mean I'm a Ravens fan.

Fine line between Disloyalty and Disagreement.

I hope so too. Woodley needs to step it up. I thought he looked out of shape in 2012, perhaps it's just me but I swear he had a bit of a belly going on. Needs to step up his game and live up to his contract. It's like the coaches have said about him in the past, he has the talent, and the ability to be great but he has yet to fully realize it.
