    Ravens on the other hand will be around $80 million, but there are way more variables to get an accurate number with the uncertain future of about 4-5 of our guys. Maybe Ravor can do some projections, the Ray contract and Reed possible extension are big factors, along with what we do with Oher.
    Looked up the contracts of 6 players they restructured for this year and the cap hit for those 6 players will increase by 37m over this year. They are to have a cap hit of 69.1 for Harrison, BR, Woodley, Timmons, Taylor and Colon. They can't cut any of those players as the hit would be greater. They can restructure again but that would really set them up for a disaster down the road.

    It sounds like the Steelers will soon be undergoing a 2003 like house cleaning.

    Pound sand, Texan! Whether you want to call it hyperbole, metaphor, or just plain old rip-off: the NFL has been ripping off it's customer base for the past decade or so with unwarranted price hikes which far exceed the rate of inflation. Fuckin' greed!

    Everybody else in the division recognized that they had to get younger, except the Steelers.
