    I disagree on some of your player opinions. But you are spot on. They can clear cap space in a hurry if they want or need to. The Cap isn’t a problem for this team. If we were already $30 million in the hole that’s a different thing. We aren’t.

    I think this will be a defining off-season for JR. He proves he is top level or average. I am eager to see what he does to get our roster another notch in quality and hope we don’t see anything close to last season’s whiffs.

    Steelers go from being under or at the cap to $30M over in a day. This is an example that if you work things a certain way, the cap is almost irrelevant. In the end though it catches up with you. It's like trading in upside down constantly on a car.

    Steelers were about $22 million over. Never were they under or at the cap. With the Pouncey retirement they are now only $15 Million over the cap. Now if Ben retires or restructures which he almost has too then they can be in decent shape,

    I agree with you on the rest though.

    The GMs have the upper hand this offseason because of the decreased cap. They will be able to get guys to restructure because no veteran wants to get cut and forced to take a small 1 yr prove it deal. I imagine there will be quite a few June 1st designations handed out as well. The top guys will get their money, but then it dries up quick for those 2nd tier guys.

    Most of the time when guys restructure they don’t lose any money....I could see Hump restructuring and taking less money to avoid hitting the market

    Often it just a matter of semantics. Roster Bonus is counted differently than Signing Bonus. Sometimes a restructure is just moving a Roster Bonus over to the Signing Bonus column. Doing so does usually jack up the ensuing salary hit, but this season, probably will have little effect.

    JRs summary on CD and Jonnu free agency:
    We will be competitive with offers to CD and Jonnu. If they want to get the most, we wish them well. they have done everything asked of them.

    Pouncey retired is how they did that.

    Crazy to me that NO is $70 million OVER to start the offseason.
