Despite the reports that the steelers will not use the franchise tag on Mike Wallace the Steelers are apparently doing everything possible to get under the cap. According to Jason La Confora, long time DE Aaron Smith is reportedly the next to go after Hines Ward. His salary is only $2.1M but at he has only played in 15 games in the past 3 seasons and at 35 you have to wonder what impact he could have next season. If I'm not mistaken they would officially on the right side of the salary cap if they follow through with this idea.
Kemoeatu lost the starting gig mid season and could be brought back but I dont see the Steelers pursuing him, after watching this past season I thought he had become a liability.
James Farrior was cut this morning.
