You can't go over. That's the answer. The team will have to cut players to get below.

"The NFL's cap is a hard cap that the teams have to stay under at all times, and the salary floor is also a hard floor; penalties for violating or circumventing the cap and floor regulations include fines of up to $5 million for each violation, cancellation of contracts and/or loss of draft picks." from the following link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salary_cap

The Steelers are over the cap a lot. Generally they will waive some players and guys like Roethlisberger restructure their contracts. Essentially you shift salary to signing bonuses so the player makes the same money, the cap hit is just different. They will also try to reduce players salaries in some instances by telling them we will waive you if you don't renegotiate.
