Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden has been a name often brought up when referring to potential salary cap casualties. He put an end to that on Twitter tonight.
I predict they don’t. https://t.co/pZ9QOgXf71

Clayton who joined 93.7 the fan in Pittsburgh predicted that the Steelers could release Haden and linebacker Vince Williams to help get under the salary cap. By releasing Haden, the Steelers would only have Justin Layne, Steven Nelson, and James Pierre left from last year’s 53-man roster.
That doesn’t seem like something they would want to do.
Never say never, but we will roll with Haden’s word on this one. It won’t be a surprise to see an extension for Haden to help free up cap space.
More to come.
