    Well, trade value wise, Harrison has none because of the mileage on him. But I do think we need to move away from him now. His salary is hurting us. We can go with Worilds.
    The Steeler the only way.

    now if you add Casey Hampton to the equation

    19,754,023 off the cap
    add some Hines ward 3,390,000

    23,144,023 off the cap
    only1,855,977 over the cap and we move the youngsters up and slide the rookies up a notch
    Chances are they will restructure some of these players deals so it won't be this dramatic
    We need to lose far more than $25 million in cap room for next year. We're $20 million over the cap with only 44 players signed, with some of them being lower-end players (Chad Spann, Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith, Mortty Ivy, Erik Clanton, Miguel Chavis, and Al Woods).

    We need about $5 million to sign draft picks, and then some to resign a couple of the following players:

    QB Byron Leftwich
    QB Charlie Batch
    QB Dennis Dixon
    RB Mewelde Moore
    WR Mike Wallace
    WR Jerricho Cotchery
    TE David Johnson
    OL Max Starks
    OL Ramon Foster
    OL Doug Legursky
    OL Trai Essex
    OL Jamon Meredith
    CB William Gay
    CB Keenan Lewis
    S Ryan Mundy
    P Daniel Sepulveda

    Five of those players were consistent starters for us this season (Wallace, Starks, Foster, Legursky, and Gay), although some are replaceable.

    I'd be really hesitant to trade Harrison because of the impact he has on the field, and because I think Worilds still needs a bit more development. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if he was traded, or maybe even cut, but I certainly wouldn't like it. OLB is arguably the easiest position to fill up on our defense, and since we've had to make tough decisions like this in the past (Joey Porter comes to mind) it could happen again. It would be a sad day for me though.
