    Haha!! Beat me to it. Here is the tweet by Neal Coolong:





    This is good for not just Bush but also Gilbert III. All that remains is beating out "Dirty Red". If he can do that, his roster spot is secure.

    Is this a cost cutting measure? ... If not I would at least bring him to camp to see where the cards fall.

    Seems premature to me, I mean who is going to carry around Devin's step stool so he can see over the lineman?

    Good point, but instead of having the mack and mike positions, it will be the mack and ninja positions. Bush will be hiding behind the bush and wham!

    I'm guessing he asked for his release and the Steelers aren't going to refuse in a situation like this.

    I would hope this at least has something to do with a cap. Otherwise, it does seem way too early to make this move.

    The dead money doesn't look great, but the bottom line is they still saved money on the cap.

    Wow surprising to me. I guess they don't feel competition is a good thing?

    The cap savings is certainly part of it. Also, after signing Barron and drafting Bush, Bostic was too low on the depth chart for a guy who doesn’t play special teams. Matakevich is holding on (for now) because he adds ST value.

    He had to have asked for his release. I think he was looking for a starting role and with what they did with free-agency and the draft knew he was sliding back to 2nd then 3rd.

    Wonder what the dead money hit for VWill looks like? I mean I like Williams attitude but between him and Bostic I'd rather keep the guy who makes plays versus the ball carrier rather than the guy who jumps the first gap he sees.

    Bostic wasn't going to play here, they drafted 2 fast ILBs in Bush and Gilbert and signed Barron.

    Someone had to go...... 90 man roster..... Bostic, Vince and Red are the same type LB , one had to go, Vince is the starter for now, red is the capable backup with a low salary and Solid ST capabilities, Bostic is left with no ST and higher salary at an overloaded position!
