Farrior's agent says he is going to be cut today!

I think Farrior might have one decent year left, but Kemo and Smith were too injury prone to justify their salaries.

I hope Hampton restructures.

I understand the NFL is a business, the Steelers are old, etc., but I think it's a tad of 'bad form' to clean house like this. Bad karma.

Such is life in the NFL...

No, this was necessary, and we will see another wave of it next year. Harrison, Hampton, and Batch, to name a few, are near the end of the line. Several others not far behind.

While I appreciate Chaz, Batch has been lucky to be a backup the last 5-7 years... So I completely agree there.

I'm less worried about Harrison's level of play and more about the controversy which surrounds him. Between his history of off-field issues and on-field 'headhunting' (not that I would call it that) I think it's rather obvious that the end of the line is near.

The thing I admire most about Hines was that he never asked for the ball. He went out and played hard and did whatever was needed to win. A dying breed in today's game.
