So from that article, it looks as if:
Legacy United 752s PS aircraft (the ones with 28 lie flats), will not have a direct narrow body replacement. They will simply be retired, and it looks like ex Continental 757s will fully own the SFO/LAX-EWR market. As more ex Continental 757s are pulled to fill the PS service gap (probably along with some 77A Polaris configured planes) when ex United 757s retire, more 767s with Polaris will shift to replace 757s on trans Atlantic routes. The routes from which the 767s are pulled will be filled by incoming 787s/A350s/freed up 777s. And then eventually, all 767s and 757s will be replaced by the 797.
Does that correctly sum it up?
I find it hard to believe that they will be retired when there is no replacement for them at the moment. Some of the sCO 757s are older in some cases.
