    One of my favorite bittersweet moments is when a lifetime Steeler retires. Bitter that it's over but sweet to know they retire in one uniform and were standouts as Steeler players. Congrats Ramon. Good luck on a great retirement.

    Happy retirement Ramon Foster. I’m kind of glad he is retiring rather than going to another team, I think his time was up in the NFL and he knew it. I’d hate to see him struggle on another team

    Yep. He won’t make any halls of fame but he was one of those stalwarts of Pittsburgh whose contributions far outweighed expectations.

    This seems like the right call for everybody. Foster had a heck of a career, especially when you consider how he started off, but it was time. He really struggled in 2019. I'm glad he decided to go this route rather than try to hang on another year or two somewhere else. Wish him well in retirement.

    I would say 1 or 2 of Feiler, Finney, of Banner HAS to be retained...right?

    Likely Feiler and Finney. If that is the case though, I would then imagine that Banner is the odd man out. If that is the case, Offensive Tackle would be where the Steelers would be going.

    It was time. He was a steady force but that ship has sailed.

    Just like Pouncey...His play plummeted rapidly...It won't be sexy, But don't be surprised if Center is our 1st pick come draft time

    Steelers depot had it. I think If cut it would have been 4 but bonuses are kicked in as in a pre June 1 cut. The Steelers can I believe to after that portion, but doubtful they would.:cool:
