  Steelers | Antonio Brown won't be cut, could be traded    Thu Jan 10, 04:22 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will not be released this offseason, but team owner Art Rooney did not rule out the possibility of trading the star receiver.

Footballguys view: Brown has not been in contract with the team since being deactivated for the Week 17 game. It sounds like this is headed for divorce, even though it would be painful for the Steelers salary cap. There is a roster bonus of $2.5 million due on March 17, so we might see him traded before then. Trading the veteran receiver would cost the Steelers $20.2 million against the 2019 salary cap.

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent TE Jesse James expects to receive interest from other teams this offseason and indicated that he will be fielding offers during free agency.

Footballguys view: James won't be the hottest name on the market at the tight end position but his all-purpose skill set should get him quite a bit of attention. He finished the 2018 season with 30 catches for a career high 423 receiving yards.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger to rework deal    Sat Jan 5, 12:33 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to restructure his contract and receive an extension before the start of the new league year so the team could create some salary cap space.

Footballguys view: That salary cap space could be critical for the Steelers, especially if they move on from Antonio Brown. If the Steelers trade away the disgruntled wide receiver before June 1st they would take a cap hit around $21 million. By Roethlisberger clearing up some space that could help alleviate that number...just a bit. Roethlisberger's final year of his current deal is 2019 and he has recently commented how he wants to play a few more years.

Footballguys view: Brown is a due a roster bonus of $2.5 million by the third day of the new league year, so any deal would need to be completed before that point. A potential trade would free up $1 million in cap space for the Steelers and create cash savings of $15 million.

  Steelers | Bucky Hodges inks contract    Wed Jan 2, 01:47 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed TE Bucky Hodges to a Reserve/Future contract Tuesday, Jan. 1.

Footballguys view: Coming out of Virginia Tech in 2016, Hodges was a sixth-round pick for the Vikings but has yet to play an NFL snap. He was released by the Vikings as a rookie and the Steelers make the fifth NFL roster he's been on. He's 6'6" 256 pounds and has a basketball player skill set at the tight end position. Hodges is someone we'll monitor but only in crazy deep dynasty formats.

  Steelers | Antonio Brown in doubt for Week 17?    Sun Dec 30, 01:40 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (knee) has reportedly not responded well to playing on turf in Week 16. Even though he is listed as questionable on the Week 17 injury report, he did not practice all week. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, there doesn't appear to be 'a lot of optimism' he will be able to play, although a final decision isn't expected until an hour or two before the start of the game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: It's more likely that Brown plays than sits, but the possibility of sitting is real if these reports are true. Juju Smith-Schuster is the Steeler receiver to put in DFS lineups this week.
