    Colon to be Released!

    Per Rotoworld.com

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette expects the Steelers to release LG Willie Colon this offseason.
    Although Colon blocked well when he wasn't being penalized in 2012, his season ended on injured reserve with recurring knee injuries and the Post-Gazette calls it Colon's "last straw" as a Steeler. The Steelers are expected to hand left guard to 2012 seventh-round pick Kelvin Beachum. Colon is owed a $5.5 million salary in 2013. His release would save $1.9 million under the cap.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    it will be interesting to see if they release him before June 1... if they do, they take the cap penalty this year. it's a lot of dead money.

    After June 1 would save a lot more this season in cap, but push the accelerated cap penalty onto the following year's cap (2014).
    Banana Fett !?!? Where???

    Is rotoworld basing this off of Bouchette's speculation? Or is there an actual team source?

    If Bouchette said he's getting cut he'll probably stay

    Agree on both counts.
