Steelers veteran Mike Mitchell likely to be cap casualty

Steelers veteran Mike Mitchell likely to be cap casualty,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/le_veon-bell-jersey-cheap]Authentic Le'Veon Bell Jersey[/url], source says

Safety Mike Mitchell's four-year run with the Steelers might be up. The Steelers are likely to release Mitchell because of his $8.1 million salary-cap charge but are interested in him returning on a new deal, according to a source.

Releasing Mitchell should save the Steelers around $5 million in cap room, which is necessary for a team that enters the weekend with $1.022 million in space.

A Mitchell departure opens the door for J.J. Wilcox, though the Steelers would save $3.125 million in cap space if they decided to release him at any point., whom the Steelers recently told they have interest in bringing back, according to a source. The safety, acquired from Tampa Bay in a trade last year, should be in the mix for playing time

The NFL Network first reported the news on Mitchell, who is entering the last season of a five-year, $25 million contract. He has recorded 281 tackles, four interceptions and four forced fumbles as a starter. His lack of splash plays during an injury-riddled 2017 season doesn't help his cause, but he has been a steady starter and good locker-room presence.

Mitchell, 30, is also known for big hits, including takedown attempts on Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert and Chiefs running back Charcandrick West that drew hefty fines. Last season, Mitchell passionately expressed his displeasure for the NFL's targeting rules.

"Just hand us all some flags. Hand us all some flags,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/terry-bradshaw-jersey-cheap]Authentic Terry Bradshaw Jersey[/url], Jack Tatum -- that's football. This ain't football.", and we'll go out there and try to grab the flags off. Because we're not playing football,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/jerome-bettis-jersey-cheap]Authentic Jerome Bettis Jersey[/url]," Mitchell said. "This is not damn football. When I was 6 years old watching Charles Woodson, Rod Woodson,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/jack-lambert-jersey-cheap]Authentic Jack Lambert Jersey[/url], Sean Taylor, the hitters

The Steelers have restructured three contracts since February and can create more cap space by reworking veteran deals or releasing players. The Steelers have not informed 33-year-old cornerback William Gay of his status. Releasing Gay would save $1.75 million in space.

Cowher touches on several aspects of this and really there’s a lot to unpack from his commentary. First, the notion of Bell’s maturity being a concern behind the scenes for the Steelers’ front office has to be true. Two suspensions and a holdout don’t exactly endear you to your team. And if he chooses to hold out even longer this time around that won’t do anything positive for his prospective employer.

Next,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/antonio-brown-jersey-cheap]Womens Antonio Brown Jersey[/url], he talks about the money. The notion that a player can feel undervalued getting paid $26 million over two years is absurd. As Cowherd put is, unless he’s “buying mansions and horse farms by the truckload” that is the very definition of security.

But most importantly,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/ben-roethlisberger-jersey-cheap]Womens Ben Roethlisberger Jersey[/url], Cowherd points out the flaw with so many Steelers’ fans. Your desire to pay Bell what he demands is just rooting against the success of this team. As Cowherd put it, fans should root for ownership to win negotiations because every time they lose the team’s flexibility and ultimately their ability to stay competitive.

"I just have to decide if I'm going to play when the time comes," Bell said, telling Fowler that retirement could be an option if no long-term deal is struck between the two parties.

Tuesday's tag application does not mean Bell has to make that decision anytime soon, however. The imminent franchise tag buys both sides roughly four more months to work out a long-term contract.

According to Bell, the Steelers and their star running back are "a lot closer than last year" when it comes to a new contract, but more talks need to be had between now and that summer cutoff date.

"We're not coming to a number we both agree on -- they are too low, or I guess they feel I'm too high," Bell said. "I'm playing for strictly my value to the team. That's what I'm asking. I don't think I should settle for anything less than what I'm valued at."

Bell feels his contract should reflect pay equivalent to his status as the Steelers' No. 1 running back and No. 2 wideout. The Steelers don't seem keen on that, particularly with the league's highest-paid running backs averaging $8.25 million and $8 million, per Spotrac.

The Steelers look likely to miss the opportunity to figure something out by Tuesday's deadline. If they do that again by July's deadline, Bell emphasized Monday that all options are on the table, including the All-Pro tailback no longer playing football.

Now that the news is out that the Pittsburgh Steelers are planning to cut ties with veteran safety Mike Mitchell, attention turns to next season. It isn’t clear if Pittsburgh has a player on the roster ready to step up into that starting role so let’s assume they do not.

Regardless of what the Steelers may do in free agency or via a trade, look for them to still draft a safety somewhere in the top three rounds. The back end of the defense was a serious liability in 2017 and the Steelers’ coaches must come up with a way to limit the big plays that plagued the defense.

Free agency is set to begin in just a few days but we have a couple of lesser-known safeties Pittsburgh might make a move for prior to the start of free agenc

Tagging Bell prevents him from hitting the free agent market when the 2018 league year begins on March 14. The franchise tag is effectively a one-year contract that in Bell's case is worth $14.54 million and guaranteed as soon as he signs the tag.

He and the Steelers can continue to negotiate a multi-year deal until 4 p.m. on July 16. If no agreement is reached by then, Bell can still only play for the Steelers in 2018 - unless they revoke the tag - but cannot be fined or lose any salary for skipping activities like minicamp and training camp if he has not signed the tag tender.

He told the network he's specifically focusing on his value and versatility to the team and not the league-wide running back market. And that whereas last year he was emphasizing guaranteed money, [url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/terry-bradshaw-jersey-cheap]Womens Terry Bradshaw Jersey[/url], this offseason he's looking at money in the front end of the contract.

“They’re really not close is probably the best way to describe it," Rapoport said.  “They still would like to get a deal done,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/jack-lambert-jersey-cheap]Womens Jack Lambert Jersey[/url], but it’s complicated. Bell wants to be properly compensated for his receiving exploits as well…that’s a hard deal to do.”

Pittsburgh GM Kevin Colbert addressed Bell's contract situation last week during the NFL Combine. 

“We’re in the midst of those talks. It has always been our intention — even going to back to last year — to get Le’Veon to sign for the longterm and to give him and us both the security I think we’re both looking for," Colbert said. "When you both have the same goal, hopefully you’ll be able to do that.

“A deal can get done literally in an hour when you have the parameters in place and just finalize some things. But the intent is the most important thing, [url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/jerome-bettis-jersey-cheap]Womens Jerome Bettis Jersey[/url],and the intent has always been there for both. So let’s try to figure it out so that we can all be satisfied and move on.”

On Monday,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/antonio-brown-jersey-cheap]Authentic Antonio Brown Jersey[/url], while the Steelers are closer, Bell told Jeremy Fowler that the offer he turned down in 2017 would have paid him an average of $13.3 million per year. Bell -- who wants to make a minimum of $14.5 million per season -- said that,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/ben-roethlisberger-jersey-cheap]Authentic Ben Roethlisberger Jersey[/url],the two sides still have some work to do before a longterm deal will be signed. 

"We're not coming to a number we both agree on -- they are too low, [url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/le_veon-bell-jersey-cheap]Womens Le'Veon Bell Jersey[/url], or I guess they feel I'm too high," Bell said. "I'm playing for strictly my value to the team. That's what I'm asking. I don't think I should settle for anything less than what I'm valued at."
