Top 10 Steelers Salary Cap Hits For 2010

While it is still too early to tell if the 2010 NFL season will be an uncapped year or not, I thought while I had the numbers pulled up, I would list the top 10 players who would count the most against a salary cap in 2010 if we have one. The figures are not exact, but should be pretty close. Aaron Smith, Ike Taylor and James Farrior are 3 players who may be under scrutiny if the Steelers do indeed have to worry about a cap number. Taylor will be in his final year of his contract as well in 2010.
