The question was about Le’Veon Bell and whether that money could be better served working on the defense. Dulac offered as part of his response, “I doubt Mike Mitchell will be back”, while also talking about the fact that they will need to find somebody to replace Ryan Shazier, discussing defensive changes. Later in the chat, he suggested that they could draft a strong safety and move Sean Davis to free safety, where he plays.

Mike Mitchell will be making what 8 plus million next season time to cut him and but some of that into Bell's pocket. I'll take Bell over Mitchell all day long.

don't think Gay and Wilcox will be on the team when the season starts.

All three of these guys won't be back with the Steelers next year...you can probably add Ramon Foster to that list as well.

Foster won't be back but I really liked him undrafted and worked his butt off and made himself into a good NFL o-lineman.

I'm glad Munchak stayed to help the Steelers draft the picked over o-linemen who are a little skinny and raw that can be built up and coached up to be NFL quality o-linemen.

I think Mitchell is bi-polar. His out of control screaming at the littlest things is downright scary.

Never seen a guy do so little yet talk so much.

Bingo.

And that's why I dislike Mitchell. If a player wants to run his mouth, that's fine if he can back it up. Mitchell can't.

Mitchell has lost a step. He doesn't seem to me to have the speed he had earlier in his career. He takes poor angles to the football, gets burnt in coverage, and puts big hits ahead of wrapping up which has lead to missed tackles. A couple of years ago, his quality of play was debatable. Right now it's on an obvious downward slide and he's writing checks that his ass can't cash. I think it's time to part ways, but my understanding is that if we cut him, we're not going to see salary cap benefits until next season, and there's the dead money this season if they do.

Ouch I didn't see that. I thought we would be opening like 6 mil in cap space??

That's what I keep reading in articles but I was talking with a guy on one of the Steelers pages that seemed to have a very intimate knowledge of the salary cap situation and he said that there's like a 3 Million hit in dead money and that the cap savings wouldn't be until next season because this isn't the last year of Mitchell's contract.

Cut him he has done nothing... let Allen take Davis spot move Davis to Mitchell’s spot. Snag a top 3round safety in the draft and let him compete with Allen and Davis in camp.

"A visible lack of closing speed and a reckless style led to a number of huge plays that might have otherwise not succeeded, and his play over the last two seasons has not justified what will be a price tag north of $8 million in 2018. Cutting him now would save the team $5 million, which should be more than enough to sign a high-caliber replacement while still saving cap space for this season."

I'd take the 5 mil and TJ Ward...

Can't say I'll be sad to see him go. I did like Mike, but it's apparent he's lost a step at this point and makes to many mistakes on top of that. Hopefully we can find a playmaker in the draft.

You're wrong Crash. What about all of his late hits that draw 15yds? That's something.

Mike Mitchell is a hitter in the wrong ERA. If this were 10 years ago, he would have been more effective. Unfortunately, the league is full of pussy ass defense, and DBs have to think about shit before they make hits now and that half a second is too big of a gap to make plays when it matters.

Oh yeah he was. Used to celebrate tackles after giving up a big play also.

kirkland's assessment of both Mitchell and Flowers is spot on.
