Steelers Six From Around The Web – Wednesday June 24th

The contract signed by offensive tackle Max Starks on Tuesday, will reportedly create about $2 million in salary-cap room for this year.

Speaking of the Steelers salary cap, I have updated my salary cap numbers to reflect the current cap situation. These numbers are not exact, but should be close. Currently I have the team at around 9 million under the cap.

Mike Bires thinks the Steelers will likely try to finalize a new deal soon with tight end Heath Miller, who’s in the last year of his contract. Hopefully this can be wrapped up by training camp.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is looking for a little rest, relaxation and golf before training camp starts, but did take time to fire back at former head coach Bill Cowher and his prediction that the Bengals would make the playoffs.

Defensive tackle Chris Hoke explains why he re-signed with Pittsburgh, rather than pursue a starting job elsewhere.

After two full seasons cornerback William Gay says he has a full grasp of the Steelers complex defense designed by defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.
