    I’d swap Corners to help lessen the blow.

    This better not be a move to free up space for JuJu..

    Maybe he is unhappy with the way the front office has handled free agency but I really don’t know what they expected the Steelers to do, their hands are pretty tied here.

    Maybe a fourth round pick and some cap relief?

    And the Steelers resign JuJu.

    Coincidence?

    This would be a bad year for Haden to suddenly become too old.

    Nelson graded well last season hope if their is a trade its a 2nd or 3rd, plus an 8,250,000 in cap savings. Still would owe him the remainder of a signing bonus 2,500,000 and a restructure of 3,670,000.

    As noted the Juju signing would eat up the 8 mill.

    We still have a solid front seven, as well as Minkah and Haden. It's not a terrible situation to be in. Complete speculation: perhaps he wants more money and the Steelers can't give it to him?

    If this is to free up cash to sign juju I just don’t know what to say. Madness!

    This is a mistake!

    Wow, what is happening?

    I knew Nelson's contract was pretty big, but I always thought we could restructure?

    Could it be possible that they sat down to talk about an extension with Nelson and his demands were crazy?

    This makes no sense on any level whatsoever otherwise. You don’t ditch a solid corner like Nelson.

    Could they get a second for him? I’m thinking a third minimum.

    This is what I'm thinking. There was a lot of speculation one of the top corners in Nelson or Haden getting traded or cut.

    Sucks I think this will be a huge blow to the secondary if he leaves

    it took us years to field a decent secondary, and now it's about to be blown up with players leaving and Haden getting old.

    Maybe the Steelers are lucky and 2021 is solid but it's likely a wash - 2022 is the goal when the money is flowing. The core is strong and we'll build the complementary pieces up.

    I would've let boo boo guy to keep Nelson. Bht the owner of the team wanted them to keep his guy around.

    The rumor is they like Pierre, maybe they confident in him stepping up into a starter role?
