    The Steelers cleared $13 million in cap space by restructuring DeCastro and Tuitt contracts

    That's a huge chunk of cash for a team with little space. Should help a lot.
    I'm happy with the Nix deal too.

    Does Pitt take a risk w Bowman?

    Might be a good idea to at least kick the tires

    I didn't watch Bowman much this season but he was a fantastic for the 49ers a few years back. He was a stud but I'm not sure he's fast enough to fill the need the Steelers have.

    Anybody think the Steelers restructuring contracts right now is more about making space to get Bell signed than picking up free agents?

    They needed to restructure just to get to a point where they could place restricted free agent tenders on people. There will be more restructures.

    The Steelers have $7.6 million in cap space right now

    That's without whatever they are paying Nix and it doesn't include RFA tenders for Boswell, Chickillo and Rogers*. So after two restructures they're basically flush against the cap. There will be more.

    *I'm assuming they don't bother with a tender for Touissant.

    LB Derrick Johnson now available

    Derrick Johnson might be a good fit for 2-3 seasons. That way we could go BPA instead of desperately picking an ILB too high.

    He looked like he was running in sand last year.

    Hes not bad to take a flyer for 1 yr...is he better than Matakevich? Personally, I go after Bowman and draft Ward w #28 or move up and get him
