    This demonstration of team spirit and loyalty is commendable, but exactly how are these salaries being restructured? Are the Steelers ‘kicking the can down the road’ so that the franchise will remain burdened with these costs long after the players are gone? On a national level, we are presently experiencing the folly of mortgaging the future to pay present debts. Let’s hope Steelers management is not falling into the same trap. ‘Live below you means’ is good advice for everyone, including NFL owners.
