    Exclamation 2012 salary cap could be lower than expected:

    Came across this from Florio over at PFT...

    The new league year begins in two weeks. But the final unadjusted per-team salary cap number for 2012 have yet to be announced.

    There’s talk in league circles that the number have been tabulated, and that the number is lower than expected.

    The number had been expected to be $120 million or so per team. Though the rumor is unconfirmed, don’t be surprised if it’s lower.

    That would hurt both the teams and the players. With less money per team to spend, there will be less money per player to receive.
    The official numbers should be out soon. They’ll definitely be out by March 13 at 4:00 p.m., because that’s the moment at which all teams will have to be in compliance with the cap. Whatever the cap may be.
    Take it for what it's worth right now, you never know with Florio but if it is lower than $120 million that'll mean even more cuts for the Steelers.

    This is one of those things that is pure speculation. Revenue was up last year so there is no reason to expect the cap to be lower at all. Worst case scenerio is it will be the same. And our front office has operated that it will be the same as last year. This is just Florio talking to be talking. he does that often.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    The league has given every team until 13 March to make their adjustments. No way the league tells the teams in the last minute the cap will be lower.

    What? We haven't Cut/retired A.SMith or Hines yet. Plus cut Farrior or Foote. Pay cut Hampton if they're keeping him as well as Chris K.

    Considering Smith, Ward, Kemo, Farrior, Foote, and Hampton (yes I know Colbert wants him) are still on the roster and have not restructured, Steelers will be fine if they have to pull the trigger with these guys.

    That would be a horrible situation to be in. All the work we did to get even with the cap then you'd need to do more restructures just to get back under again? That would be a stupid idea.

    It's Florio so I rarely put stock in what he posts up until it comes from more than just him.
