    Steelers begin offeseason moves
    The Steelers on Wednesday began the process of getting under the 2012 NFL salary cap by releasing veterans Bryant McFadden and Arnaz Battle.

    McFadden, a starting cornerback at the beginning of the season, lost his starting job to William Gay after suffering a hamstring injury.

    Battle, the team's special teams captain, also struggled through an injury-plagued 2011 season.

    Their release, coupled with a restructuring of linebacker LaMarr Woodley's contract, saves the Steelers around $10 million in cap space.

    The Steelers are still around $10 million over the 2012 cap, but have another three weeks to alleviate that issue.

    Up next on the restructuring table could be linebacker Lawrence Timmons and nose tackle Casey Hampton.

    Timmons' deal would be a straight restructure, with the team looking to lower his $9.1 million cap hit, while Hampton will likely have to take a pay cut from his $4.9 million salary to stick around.

    Look for Ward to take a pay cut or a restructure obviously. His cap hit is 4 million so they could add another year and bring that down if they want.

    I think the Timmons deal is done just no number announced yet. Also with Hokie retiring what was his cap number?

    Hampton is in the final year of his contract. He cannot be restructured unless he gets extended.

    Hoke is a free agent and not counted towards the 2012 salary cap.

    THEY WILL GET UNDER THE CAP I think casey Hampton should be cut and they should move Hood the the nose .that way you will have keisel hood heyward starting 3 but if they do that then we will be thin at DT WITH ONLY mclendon in reserve.

    Khan will get it done and it helps that players like Timmons and Woodley are stepping up. They have until 13 March to get the 51 highest paid contracts under the cap.
