The Pittsburgh Steelers aren't ready to park the Bus just yet.
Jerome Bettis, who weighed retiring after the Steelers lost in the AFC Championship Game last month, agreed Saturday to another pay cut and will play
for at least one more season.
This is the second consecutive season the NFL's No. 5 career rusher has accepted a substantial pay cut to stay in Pittsburgh. Bettis was to have made
$4,484,000 next season, but will play for about $1.5 million -- or about $500,000 more than his base salary last season.
Classy move for Bettis to accept a pay cut to finish his career in Pittsburgh. I think he proved this past season that he can still be a productive
running back. He started 6 games last season and rushed for over 100 yards in every game.
