    It wasn't a forgone conclusion until they had a replacement on the roster.

    Otherwise he'd still be on the team.

    Had little to do with him asking to be released and more with him doing his best Duce Staley impersonation.

    I don't buy it. He was an oft injured player that prevented them from using heir dollar defense they had been working on.

    I don't know about that I felt like he was going to be cut all along. I thought the Steelers were gonna put the screws to him and make him a post June 1 cut. We could save 5 mil while only eating 1.4 mil as appose to saving 3.6 mil and eating 2.8 mil now. The guy ran his mouth and didn't want to be here, he complained he didn't want to play the ILB role like we are trying to run. And after all the drama with AB why would the Steelers keep a guy who is unhappy and might cause problems? IMO I did not see this guy with the team next year.......

    They could have done that right away and designated him a post June 1st cut.

    Doesn't make any sense that they would have cut him without anyone to take his spot.

    Yeah they could have but why, how does that benefit the Steelers? There is no hurry to cut him until they have a replacement, the only person it hurts is Burnett as he don't get to enjoy the big dollar FA period.

    You know as well as I do the Steelers don't play the early FA game, it was a wait and see what we can get at a good price and if we don't find anything then there is always the draft. IMO there was no way Burnett was coming back for several reason. 1) him running his mouth, 2) his cap hit/cap savings, 3) him not wanting to play the ILB position and 4) his health.

    As far as I'm concerned this was perfect the Steelers get the last laugh as a lot of money has been spent and there are still some good safeties out there so with his history he might not find another good contract...........See ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!
