    I'll still be fuming over it, depending on how much the contract is for.

    Barron, Vance, Foster, Nix, Berry all gone saves $22M

    Start there

    You know the Steelers will never win a FA bidding war for a Bud replacement, so just pay him now and hope he doesn't suck again, lol

    its a start to sign him to a long term deal we could realy use 7 mill from that to get a real TE and perhapsa OG like Spain from Buffalo

    This is tough, Cam, Tuitt, Watt, Nelson, Minkah are all going to need signed, and they're going to be big deals (Tuitt already has the second highest cap hit on the team). Also JuJu on offense, and the offense needs help too.

    That's the issue, Bud and his agent will ask around to see what kind of deal he'd get in Free Agency(I'm sure that's happening now), there's alot of teams with alot of space that can over pay and give a large guarantee to Bud.

    It also shows why we're fans and not running the team

    I'll ask this and seeking your opinions...

    "How much did the defense drop off after Tuitt went down for the year?"

    Bermuda's answer - none. But would it be better? Not sure. Tyson and Isaiah did a nice job filling in that role (much cheaper BTW)...

    Agree, but I think cutting Tuitt so soon might cost us. I'm not 100% sure on that, and a big part of the defense not dropping off was Hargrave actually getting to play, but he's a free agent too.

    cutting Tuitt now would be a cap hit of -2.8M, not a savings. It would also leave 17M in dead money. He isn't going anywhere.

    Thanks, I was thinking it was a hit if he were cut.

    That's a great point Bermuda. I like Tuitt, but is he really that critical? Our depth is much better there than at OLB. Add Chickollo to the names of who should be cut, that guy sucks.

    There's a reason great players change organizations who want to keep them. Imo Steelers will tag bud.

    Barron and Foster are pretty easy cuts roster wise. Though Barron played a lot of snaps those can be eaten up by Bush. You still have to pay a starting TE and a punter and the trend if you watch the remaining games is to have a quality FB. So you can cut all those guys, but you still got to replace them with quality players.

    He played at Kentucky, so you know he's good.
