Seems like a good deal for the Steelers when one considers they were on the hook for over $8M next season, now they can spread the wealth and address extensions for players such as Heath Miller and Casey Hampton, among others. Perhaps Max was desirous of a short contract and a double-digit bonus, can’t really figure where the sticking point could have been.

Good job, Omar and congratulations to Max!

Mission #1 for Starks?  No sacks of Big Ben from the blind side.  Mission #2?  Get that running game back on the rails.  Is it too much to ask for two 1000+ yard backs?  Gotta keep Fast Willie and Mendenhall fresh for the playoffs.
