How would they fit him under the cap?
Well it ain't happening so no point in getting too specific. They could go all sorts of ways. He is under contract for two more years.

Remember - 1) in any trade, the Texans would get him for only the base salaries and the Steelers would eat the dead money for bonuses and 2) if the Texans "could have" done it for $20 mil for Manning then they can do it for $12 for Big Ben.

You should probably chill and re-examine the scope of the conversation.

Because wearing that shirt means she is down to sleep with EVERYONE.

Please, don't use a woman's choice of clothing to justify sexual assault.

I don't think it'll happen, but I agree, and this is ANOTHER one we'd be stupid not to take advantage of.

Is that NFL or MLB that can't be traded. I was thinking the latter. It is the former.

Second round pick. LOL.

Ask yourselves this question. If Ben was our QB and the Steelers were asking for him, what would it take to trade him away with nobody on our squad set to replace him?

It would take at least two 1st round picks to get him away from Pittsburgh. Easily.

No. I will give him a break of most any other kind though.

I'm just about desperate enough to see AJ get a ring that I would say yes.

Why do you give BR the benefit of the doubt and not our own? He's in his declining years. Let him bleed the Steelers dry with an overpriced contract in a couple of years.
