Keep reading conflicting numbers for Woodley as a 6/1 cut.

But putting him on IR for a calf... isn't that saying something?

Everything I've heard locally is that if a post June 1 cut he saves us 8 million with 5.5 dead money next year through 2017.

I mean, they have to make a statement here.  You already let a good young corner walk.  What's Einstein's definition of insanity again?



I've seen pay-cut talks thrown around and they make sense logically but I don't think he'd do it.  He's already pocketed 25 million in bonuses.  Due 25.5 million in salary for the next three.  Doubt he gets more than 8.5 a year on the open market, but still don't think he agrees to a pay cut. Only 29, may think he gets more on the market, blah, blah.

And... FFS... I am sick of these RESTRUCTURES that take older vets' salaries and defers them to when we know they will be obsolete in terms of playing viability. 

Over the past 4 years, Worilds has seen very limited action; Woodley has missed time due to injury.

Sacks per GS:  0.56 for Woodley (fitting!), 0.85 for Worilds.

Tackles per GS: 2.96 for Woodley, 7.1 for Worilds.

Might not be fair to compare C$2 to rookie deal WRT production, but fair or not:

$ per sack:  almost $800K for Woodley, $225,000 for Worilds.

$ per tackle:  $151K for Woodley, $27K for Worilds.

Worilds playing with Heyward is the future, baby.

FYI from Bouchette's blog.  Interesting on the deferral as well.  Also, he suggested extending Ben, dropping his cap hit next year to free up the money necessary to extend Worilds, who will be UFA as of March 11: 


What some still do not understand when it comes to LaMarr Woodley is that the Steelers can save real money AND salary cap space by releasing him. That’s $8 million. Yes, they would have to wait until June to realize a savings on their salary cap in 2014, but they can use that money after June too. They could use it to extend the contract of Maurkice Pouncey for one, and maybe Cortez Allen, and maybe someone else.

And if they do not use that $8 million in 2014, with the new cap rules in the CBA, they can carry it over to 2015 to virtually offset the $8.5 million in dead cap money he would count against them if they do cut him in June 2014.

Interesting.  Didn't know that about the carry-over.
