The Terrible Podcast – Talking Team Leadership, NFL Combine, Mike Wallace, Steve Breaston & More Episode

Steelers Podcast

Season 3, Episode 78 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I talk first about the continued fallout from the Pittsburgh Steelers anonymous player telling the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that linebacker LaMarr Woodley was out of shape last season and played awful. We discuss the most recent interviews that Ryan Clark, Larry Foote, Ike Taylor and Antonio Brown gave regarding the issue and we discuss the state of the leadership currently on the team.

The Miami Dolphins are rumored to be a team interested in pursuing Mike Wallace once the free agency signing period opens so we discuss where he might land and at what price. Kevin Colbert will talk to the media at the NFL combine on Thursday and we share a few of the questions that our listeners sent to us that they would like to see the Steelers GM asked following us revealing ours in the last episode.

Will Sean Spence be ready by the start of training camp? We don\’t think anyone really knows for sure right now but discuss all of the doom and gloom that Ed Bouchette has been spreading about the health of the young linebacker.

Steve Breaston is now a free agent and we discuss his potential of possibly becoming a member of the Steelers down the road. As usual, we mix in several other talking points in the episode as well.

    Waiting on these restructures…. last offseason they started as early as February 7th or 8th and continued restructuring through the end of February.

    I still hope they find a way to NOT have to restructure all that are being mentioned in that ‘contract restructure’ conversation.

  • JayBirdDC

    Wasn’t Spence practicing in an non-contact jersey at the end of season?

  • Kusko_Ken

    I’m wondering if he had a set-back?

  • Mike Carroll

    It’s not surprising the team is taking more time before announcing restructures this year. Last year, Woodley’s was done two days after the SB, but it would have been laughable if they rushed out that quickly to put more money on the credit card for any player after an 8-8 season. Hopefully, they aren’t just making a show of increased caution, but have actually resolved to limit restructures this time around. I would think they prefer to handle any paycut negotiations before clearing too much cap room via restructures. Otherwise, the players have less reason to believe the team may cut them and therefore will be less likely to take a paycut.

  • Mike Carroll

    The team deferred a total of $26M last year via restructures with Ben’s done last on Feb 23rd.

  • steeltown

    You could be right.. they might meet with Harrison and Colon and any other possibles for paycuts or straight up release.

    With Colon though I would think a release after June 1st would be the course of action even though it would not effect the initial cap situation, in the end thats where the most savings would come

  • Mike Carroll

    Yeah that’s a possibility for Colon. If the team is able to squeeze under the March 13 deadline without cutting him, I suppose they might be able to use the post June 1 savings (5.5M) to sign some of the new draft class and late free agents. I don’t really like the idea of putting that much dead money on next year’s cap this early, but I suppose it might be the best option they have.

    By the way, I just heard Colbert say no salary cap moves will be made until after they return from the combine.

  • steeltown

    Yea.. I figured that, regarding the combine

    I dont know what their thought process is on Colon, but me personally, he’d be gone, save the 5.5mil, eat the dead money and move on. Too much money involved for a player with too many significant injuries. The next 3yrs he’s due a ton of money.

    They should never have given him that BIG contract after a season ending injury.

  • Mike Carroll

    Agreed. I think it’s just a matter of them deciding when to release him.
