    Re: Steelers trade for Levi Brown

    Steeler boards are in full "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" mode about this trade. They're also saying that Cards fans are quite happy about it.

    And they're extremely pissed that Ozzie got a much better player.

    Very possible. Perhaps Steelers wanted Monroe but we outbid them. We have two games with Steelers that we need to win. Steelers lack talent all over and Dont have a 3rd round pick next year. Could of been a block move also by Ozzie. Pittsburg to get Monroe would mean they Wouldnt have a 3rd,4th or 5th rounder for a talent strapped team.

    seems that anything would be an upgrade. go about halfway down the article to read about Adams.

    Again I could be wrong but it appears as if Pitt took the consolation prize.
    I think you are right. Brown this year is get this more expensive then Monroe. Brown counts 3.6 million against cap this year to the Steelers for a conditional rental. Ozzie blocked the Steelers. Ozzie plays Chess and Colbert checkers.

    Brown's cap number is higher than Monroe's. Brown just signed a big extension last year for $30 million

    omg the Steelers have really gone downhill.

    Pittsburgh will now further compromise their salary cap with the addition of Brown. Brown’s cap number will add $3.6 million to Pittsburgh’s current payroll. As of Tuesday they only had $1.86 million in cap space meaning they will need to create nearly significant cap space to execute the trade. The Steelers have already gone to the restructure route multiple times in the last two years which has left them with a difficult cap situation again in 2014, where they are estimated to already be a few million over the cap with just 40 players under contract. The addition of Brown will add another $6.25 million to the teams payroll in 2014 plus whatever money is pushed from 2013 to 2014 via a restructure.Possible restructure candidates could be Ike Taylor or Troy Polamalu while they could also consider extending Ryan Clark for some cap relief.

    Yep. Steelers wanted Monroe. But thier lack of overall talent prevented them from trading a 4th and 5th for Monroe. Plus Steelers traded thier 3rd next year to Browns. You CANT rebuild without a 3, 4 and 5th.

    The Steelers are going to suck for a while. It makes you wonder if they will be able to rebuild while Ben is still productive
