Steelers Contracts and Salary Cap

Play Money: Outside Linebackers

The Steelers are about to experience a logjam at outside linebacker with Jason Worilds heading through the exit, LaMarr Woodley squeezing his way back in from the bank and Jarvis Jones trying to fit in anywhere he can.

Play Money: Quarterbacks

The Steelers are staring down the barrel of their highest draft position in years after another non-winning season. Should they draft a QB for the future, or just worry about the franchise passer they already have?

Salary Cap: Looking forward to 2014

The players may continue to take the 2013 season one game at a time, but after guaranteeing a second-consecutive non-winning season after losing their last two games, the organization will begin to focus on the future.

What in the Worilds are the Steelers to do?

The more Jason Worilds continues to look like a starting NFL linebacker on the left side of the Steelers defense, the more LaMarr Woodley develops a striking resemblance to Willie Colon.

Worilds contract situation is similar to Lewis's

Worilds is a free agent this offseason, and his play of late will no doubt up his price tag a bit. He will attract other suitors, and his situation likely won't be much different than it was for former Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis.

Ben open to 'whatever it takes' to help team

If Ben Roethlisberger will do "whatever it takes" to help the team in his upcoming contract extension negotiations, it's possible he takes a few less dollars, or, the proverbial hometown discount.

Cap decisions loom at season's halfway point

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is both able-bodied and high-priced. With additional help brought in this offseason, the Steelers look to face difficult cap-related questions this offseason. Some players have just half a season to prove their worth.

Taylor's restructure is a positive move

While the Steelers have been making roster moves they have inched closer to the $123 million salary cap total. They're keeping Taylor in place for the future and creating a strong core at the cornerback position.

Levi Brown will make veteran minimum in 2013

Brown will not create cap ramifications for the Steelers in 2013.

Steelers need to clear $2 million in cap space

The trade for Levi Brown will bring more difficult financial decisions for the Steelers - who will reportedly need to free up approximately $2 million for this trade to be completed.
