Default We still paying Troy 3x his worth?

No way Troy has earned anything close to this over the past year plus with his injuries and being constantly out of shape. Yet they will pay him 10mill this year?

I'm not even sure they have reneg'ed him at any point since he signed that contract.

Based on Woods health etc, I do not believe this was a good cut. We carried Aaron smith 2 years to long, kept farrior a year to long and Im sure there is more dead wood out there from the past.

I don't think they have anything planned for Troy, Lebeau has stood up for Polamalu saying he can still play at the highest level for several years

troy needs to be cut or renogotiated to half his salary. he has been stealing money the last few years. this isnt a superbowl team and wont be for a few years, at the earliest. troy wont be part of that. time to move on.

Will Dick is being premature yet again. Troy hasn;t played up to par in fact he hasn;t even played. We pay him to stand on the sidelines.

I love Troy as much as the next guy around here - but facts are facts. He's doing the organization very little good at this point (as much as i hate to say it....).
I would like to have him around but not at the WHOPPING, gigantic salary he gets - there's no way any logical person can say that he's worth having around at those kinds of dollars. It just isn't so.

To be honest, i'd rather have James here for the next 2 years than Troy. He needs a massive paycut or released too. We badly, desperately need the money - it could go to much better use.

I'd rather have Keenan Lewis than Polamalu.

I wouldn't trade one old fart for another and I really don't want what he's brought to the table the past few seasons: hardly anything

I love him - but, just not worth a handful of games anymore. You can almost guarantee he won't last past mid - 3/4 way in through season at best

The entire team needs to renegotiate to put the team well under cap. I would like to see Troy retire a Steeler but he's worth about 3 million a year and be probably thinks that would be an insult.
