Pittsburgh Steelers: Trimming the Fat and Adjusting the Roster for the Future

With the new CBA for the NFL about to be agreed upon, NFL teams are going to be in a rush to not only understand the rules of the new CBA, but to get their players under contract as soon as possible.

I am going to take a few minutes to do the Steelers a favor.  Here is every move they need to make, not only to get under the league mandated $130 million dollar salary cap (estimated at this point.  No one knows for sure, but it will be between $120 million and $135 million, so I am going to go with $130).

The new rules also state that every team MUST spend at least 90% of that money on every given year, so there is no time to be cheap.

Currently, according to yardbarker.com, the Steelers sit at $129, 845,000.  That is only $155,000 from the salary cap. There are rookies that need to be signed, and free agents that need to be brought in. That means, that number is going to need to be trimmed.
