These are my thoughts on what the FO does with its current roster.
E.Sanders- no way he doesn't cash in elsewhere
J.Dwyer- with all offseason to find anywhere but here
L.Brown- cut but may resign, no better place with chance to start
Z.Hood- can't afford to pay FA money for marginal skills, replaced by draft pick or fringe FA
B.Keissel- retire or cut
R.Clark- retire or cut
I.Taylor- cut but possibly resigned at less mny
M.McBriar- whole offseason to find cheaper better option
T.Haley- his QB and most of team hates him and run game is worse under him
B.Roethlisberger- will extend, unless he rly does want out
J.Cotchery- likes Pitt and will take less to stay
H.Miller- To important to lose will prob restructure
S.McLendon- won't cost much, has potential, and needed with loss of Hood
A.Woods- cheep and shows potential
L.Foote- will sign for less to stay in Pitt and is needed for depth
T.Polamalu- will restructure
M.Tomlin- it's gona take a lot more than last 2 yrs for him to go
F.Jones- if he signs for min
L.S.Howling- if he signs for min
P.Burress- if he signs for min
M.Speath- if we dnt draft a TE in first 4 rds
F.Velasco- if we cut Pouncey
M.Pouncey- if we dnt sign Velasco
G.Wimper- if he signs for min
J.Worilds- if we cut Woodley and no one else gives him the "Worilds"
L.Woodley- if we resign Worilds
L.Timmons- needs to restructure
W.Gay- cut if Taylor comes back
W.Allen- if he signs for min
S.Suisham- cut if no other way to get under cap
K.Colbert- does he get blame for current state of team?
If it were me I'd like to see Woodley and Pouncey go! Keep Worilds and Velasco! The FO had similar choice last year with Taylor and Lewis. Now it looks like Taylor might go anyway! I think the team needs to invest in younger cheaper players even if talent dictates otherwise. Until we get out of this cap nightmare at least. Another big factor will be who replaces coaching and FO firings. And rather or not AR3 has learned to be more like his dad and grandfather, and less like Snider and Jones! Let the coaches coach, the players play, and the FO do front officey stuff!
