This team needs to get younger on defense and if cutting Aaron Smith helps the cap AND helps them get younger, I have no problem with it. I also wouldn't be mad if Farrior got cut as well, but he (Farrior) makes the calls on defense (as does Ryan Clark), so he MIGHT be safe.
I just don't want to see this team get old like the that team in the 70s did and THEN rebuild, instead of rebuilding positions as needed. This is a business. I'm sure that management and the coaches LOVE these guys but they must make sacrifices for the TEAM. They can't allow their emotions dictate their decisions.
So if Smith, Farrior, Ward, Clark, etc. or any other old vet gets cut, it's business....never personal.
I believe A Smith is the only one that is in line to get cut this season.... Thank you for the service!
aaron smith used to be an underrated player - but that was 5 or 6 years ago when BB came out and said it .. now he is overrated by a bunch of people who try to show football knowledge by appreciating 5 techs ..
idc if he used to be a master of the position, his body is falling apart, his expected contributions to this team on a go-forward basis are/have been seriously exaggerated and that to me is as overrated as it gets
Steelers are, as of now, around 8.5 million over the cap.
However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!
