Thank you for the pictures, they are awesome. I didn't know your wife and daughter were going or isn't that your wife and daughter? I had more tickets I kept asking you "do you know of anyone who wants to go with you?"

BTW, your son is adorable! Your entire family looks completely Steeler oriented and really look nice!

Now, what was the question here? :)

I could sworn cedric wilson's contract was up after this year as well :scratch:
fortunately we have no major UFA's to deal with this year. It shouldnt be too difficult to resign Najeh, Tryone Carter, and Arnold Harrison. Morey will probably come back, the team would be stupid to not bring him back because of his special teams greatness.

I would look for them to try and sign Starks to a new deal as well. Nate is a big one that I would think they'll give a bit of a raise too and bring back

Starks, Washington, and Davenport needs to stay aboard on our roster.

Harrison is another player I would like to see stay. Logan might go, but it would be wise to keep him as a backup on the depth chart. Sean Morey has got to stay, he was a star on the special teams despite the awful bad season they've had. Stanley, Warren, Bailey, Brooks are goners. Chad Brown as much I wouldn't mind seeing him come back for the Steelers might retire I don't know.

The incentives they spent on winning the super bowl are huge. It may come back to bite them, then again maybe it is a good problem to have. Ben himself got $500,00. for winning the Superbowl.

I am not sure how much incentives count towards you salary cap though :dunno:

I thought Cedrick Wilson's contract didn't expire til next season? 4 year deal wasn't it? His play this year totally went to the drain I swear. Holmes, Washington, Ward will be the three starters for sure next season. Reid should slide in at number 4, but damn he better stay healthy for next season and become our next Randle El on the return side of the ball. His injury hurts more than we all thought.

Incentive Bonuses

Contracts can have incentive bonuses. These come in two important types: "Likely to be earned," and "Not likely to be earned." If you give Payton Manning a $1M bonus for being selected to the Pro Bowl, then this money will be considered "likely to be earned," as Payton is always selected to go to the pro bowl. Such bonus money counts against this year's cap starting right at the start of the year, even though the pro bowl voting isn't until well into the season.

On the other hand, if you had a clause in Payton's contract that gave him a $1M bonus for personally rushing for 10 or more TDs, this would be considered "Not likely to be earned," as Payton simply doesn't take off with the ball much. He rushes for perhaps a couple TDs a year. This money does not count against this year's cap. If you wind up paying this money, it counts against next year's cap. Whether a bonus is likely to be earned or not is decided by league lawyers, not by your team. However, there are rules and guidelines so that it's pretty easy to structure a payment such that it is or is not likely, depending on your need.

With Chad Browns bad knee injury he'll likely retire I would think. Arnold Harrison showed alot of upside when he played before he got hurt. Logan is a good ST guy and good vet to have around who would come pretty cheap.

The rooney's have done a good job of locking up most of our key players for a long time. They really need to get Troy locked since he is coming into his last year of his current deal, but other than that we can really focus on the draft with most of our money. I don't know our exact cap situation off the top of my head but we do have a fair amount of money to play with last I checked. If there's one thing the team is good at, it's managing the cap.

Mike Logan mulling retirement

Mike's had a good career and he's gotten to spend most of it in Pittsburgh, atleast his best years. It wouldnt surprise me if he retires, or maybe comes back for 1 more year depending on how the coaching thing turns out.

Wilson signed a four-year contract with the Steelers worth $8 million, which includes a $2 million signing bonus. This contract was signed on or around March 8, 2005 as reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
