    There are times when a scapegoat is used. A player who is used as an example for a poor performance.As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football it looks like the team might have found their scapegoat following a poor performance against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2.Who is the player? CB Artie Burns.Burns popped up on the injury report last week with a toe injury Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys , but Burns isn’t using that as an excuse. It also should be noted Burns hasn’t been listed on the team’s injury report this week.Nonetheless, Coty Sensabaugh has been splitting reps with Burns this week, and the former first round pick is unsure if he will be across from Joe Haden on Monday night, or relegated to backup duties.Burns hasn’t played well throughout this young season, but he is hardly alone. The entire secondary collapsed last week, and it is difficult to pin the performance just on Burns, but it seems if the Steelers make a change it will be at the cornerback position.What might surprise some is how it is Sensabaugh, not Cameron Sutton, who would be filling in if Burns is indeed benched.Maybe this speaks more to the state of development for both Burns and Sutton, combined with the solid play by Sensabaugh.Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding this story.Steelers have more than $7M in salary-cap space after saving another week of Le’Veon Bell’s salary There are many downsides associated with Le’Veon Bell’s prolonged absence from the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the impact on the team’s salary-cap position isn’t one of them. With every week Bell misses, the Steelers save $855,529.41. So far, he’s effectively given back $2,566 http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com ,588.23.For a team that seems perpetually short on cap space, any extra funds are always welcome and, with Bell’s effort to preserve his body for his new team likely to extend well into the season, the savings appear set to keep coming.[img]http://www.sndpic.com//nike_nfl_jerseys/nike_pittsburgh_steelers/nike_steelers_2165.jpg[/img]
    Should the recent rumors about Pittsburgh’s willingness to entertain a trade amount to anything, the Steelers could ultimately find themselves with the full $14.544 million Bell was due to earn coming back onto the books.While there’s nothing to be gained from having a surplus amount of salary-cap space right now, Pittsburgh is already poised to rollover more cap dollars into 2019 than ever before. If Bell sits out until the final deadline to report before Week 11, this would save the Steelers an additional $5,988,705.87 on the season and see them carry around $13 million into next year. But if Bell misses the entire season, Pittsburgh could rollover close to $19 million, barring any unforeseen expenses.With the notable assistance of salary cap specialist Ian Whetstone, we have detailed all of the Steelers’ salary-cap costs so far this season and we’ve calculated they are $7,010,892 under the cap as of Monday, September 24 — a figure that puts them ahead of 14 other teams in the league for cap space based on numbers from OverTheCap.com.For those wondering why our total is so different than some of the other published figures available Pittsburgh Steelers Womens T-Shirt , it’s worth noting that, although OverTheCap.com has the Steelers listed as being $7,508,482 under the cap, their figure doesn’t appear to include a recent injury protection payment made to Ladarius Green worth $550,000. While the NFLPA public salary cap report lists a total of $11,267,435, it should be pointed out that their figures have yet to be updated to reflect the end of the rule-of-51 period. For reasons that make no real sense, Spotrac have Pittsburgh with over $20 million in cap space after prematurely deleting Bell from the ledger altogether.As per Whetstone, it’s unclear if the money forfeited by Bell each week is immediately available as salary cap funds this season as first expected, or if it will be returned to the account at the start of next season in the form of an adjustment. But with the free-agent market having been picked clean months ago, it’s relatively unimportant when the funds hit the books between now and next year.
