The Steelers decision not to exercise their fifth-year option on
Artie Burns might be their least shocking move of the offseason."With the deadline for the Pittsburgh Steelers to exercise the fifth-year option on 2016 first-round draft pick Artie Burns set to pass on Friday Ben Roethlisberger Jersey , it should already be obvious that the team will not be exercising their right to retain the cornerback in 2020. But for those still hoping that the Steelers might have a change of heart in the final 24 hours, a report from Jeremy Fowler of ESPN on Wednesday should have ended that fantasy.Once a promising rookie coming off an encouraging debut season, Burns has not come close to matching the expectations that came with his draft status, relegated to a reserve role in 2018 after struggling throughout most of the 2017 season.Appearing as a guest of 93.7 The Fan on Tuesday, while general manager Kevin Colbert sounded hopeful that the former first-round draft pick could regain the form he had hinted at as a rookie Jack Butler Jersey , it is hard to be confident that Burns will even make the 2019 opening day roster. And when asked how the young cornerback figured in the Steelers plans going forward, Colbert put the onus on Burns to step up this season if he wants to stick around long-term.In light of those words, it is hardly surprising to note that the Steelers appear more than willing to turn down the opportunity to commit almost $10 million to Burns in 2020, the projected cost of his fifth-year option. And if Pittsburgh is looking to create some salary cap space later in the year, it would not be a shock if the Steelers let him leave in 2019. A move that would save them just over $1.75 million against the cap before displacement and leave them with around $1.3 million in dead money to account for. Currently one of 12 cornerback on the roster fighting for a place among the final 53 come September Joshua Dobbs Jersey , it is difficult to see how Pittsburgh will be able to justify keeping Burns. Benched in favor of Coty Sensabaugh who the Steelers have already allowed to leave this offseason, the task of beating out veteran free agent Steven Nelson for playing time should be even more of a challenge this year. With Justin Layne, Joe Haden, Mike Hilton and Nelson all locks to be on the opening day roster for a team that began the year with five cornerbacks in 2018, Burns may struggle to beat out 2017 third-round draft pick Cam Sutton who may be prefered as a reserve in the slot Derwin Gray Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey , 2017 fifth-round pick Brian Allen or an outsider like former AAF players Kameron Kelly or Jack Tocho. Since the fifth-year option was introduced as part on the new CBA in 2011, Pittsburgh has exercised it for Cam Heyward, David DeCastro, Ryan Shazier and Bud Dupree, with Burns set to join Jarvis Jones as the only player to have his option declined. Steelers running back Benny Snell doesn’t have to worry about drug charges from the state of Ohio Derwin Gray Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey , but the court of the NFL may still rule.According to Tom Davidson of the , drug charges against Snell were withdrawn after an August traffic stop.According to a report from the Harrison County (Ohio) sheriff’s office, Snell admitted to smoking marijuana about 20 minutes before he was pulled over for speeding. A deputy found 2.74 grams of marijuana in a baggie with a Star Wars logo on it — bringing new meaning to the Rise of Skywalker.Snell was clocked doing 68 mph in a 55mph zone. He pleaded guilty to speeding and paid $240 in fines and court costs.His attorney sought to seal records in the case. A Steelers spokesman said they alerted the league office when they learned of the incident, which could create an issue for Snell down the road. Players can be punished under the league’s conduct policy absent an arrest.
