    The Pittsburgh Steelers have given center Justin Hartwig permission to contact other teams and explore trade options, a league source said Friday.



    The emergence of first-round draft pick Maurkice Pouncey has made Hartwig expendable. Originally the thought was Pouncey would begin at guard, but he already knows the calls and verbage to handle center, according to a team source.

    "Those are the things you think about when you're starting and, all of sudden, you got another guy playing in front of you," Hartwig said after practice last Thursday. "Obviously, you think about your future. That's the nature of this business."

    Hartwig has been through this before -- most notably when he outplayed and replaced Sean Mahan before the start of the 2008 regular season.

    "I've had the upper hand in these situations and I've had the lower hand," Hartwig said. "You kind of take things in stride."

    Hartwig, who signed a four-year contract extension in 2009, is scheduled to earn $2.08 million this season.

    I'd take a 6 pack of IC and a bag of hair for him. Just kidding, I definitely need a case of IC to part with Hartwig

    I figured he would go, but he would have been a serviable back-up center, but the extension he signed made the price tag to high.
