They're still restructuring contracts and having to push cap hits to future years. That's not a good rebuild.
Why, because they aren't trying to bottom out the roster and go 4-12? They're rebuilding. There's no getting around it.
There's a difference between "bottoming out the roster" and saying, well, maybe we'll take that draft pick for sanders instead of fitting him under the cap.
What they're doing is not a rebuild, they're working to replace some of the aging guys. Ie, Jones for Harrison. I also understand the approach of not looking to move on from Roethlisberger until a replacement is found. But they can't take that approach with guys like Foote, Polamalu, Clark Taylor, Miller, Woodely etc.
