Dolphins | Interested in Bettis - from www.KFFL.com

Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports the Miami Dolphins have showed an interest in Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jerome Bettis. However, the Steelers cannot afford to trade Bettis, who counts $2 million under their 2004 salary cap. If Pittsburgh elects to trade Bettis, then he would count $3 million due to the remaining prorated portion of his signing bonus at $1 million per year through 2006.

Couldn't the Steelers redo his contract to make it easier for them to trade him? I wonder why this is never done. Than, after they trade him, he gets a new contract from Miami. Does this seem to logical or am I missing something where this can't be done?

It's hard to believe Bettis is one of the top 10 rushers in terms of yards gained in the NFL. He's done it so quietly.

I like the guy.... a tough competitor and a high character guy that does alot for kids.

As for the trade....in the words of George Bush Senior.... "Not gonna do it.... Not gonna happen... wouldn't be prudent".
