Found February 24, 2012 on SteelerAddicts:
More cuts are coming for the Steelers, and contract restructures as well.  Kevin Colbert, Steelers GM mentioned as much several times in recent interviews with the local media and also at the 2012 NFL Combine during his media session.  We don’t know how many more or who might be involved in having their contract restructured (or  terminated) but Steelers insider Gerry Dulac of the Post Gazette tweeted out: @gerrydulac: Ben’s restructure puts Steelers very close to cap number. But more moves to come. 3 of 4 prob won’t be back – Ward, Smith, Farrior, Foote. None of these names would come as any major surprise to most as each one carries some combination of a significant cap hit, coming off an injury, or just at the end of their career.

Where Will Mike Wallace Land?
