I’m going to be blunt here. I don’t agree with Ben Roethlisberger’s statements yesterday made to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette. Roethlisberger claims the locker room is fine and that recent comments made by a number of current players and a former one are out of “frustration” over an 8-8 season. Frustration is often the result of much more though and that’s...
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that the Steelers have restructured QB Ben Roethlisberger‘s contract on Thursday.
Bouchette adds that this will free up an extra $6 million in cap space for the 2013 season. Roethlisberger had a staggering cap figure of $19.595 million, so it makes sense that they would try to get that down to a more manageable number.
The Pittsburgh Steelers struggled through a disappointing 8-8 season last year, which is quite uncharacteristic for one of the NFL’s most successful franchises. As if the team did not already have enough issues to work through in order to get back to the playoffs next season, the coaches and players have also had to deal with anonymous teammates ripping one another.
Ben Roethlisberger is set to make $19.5 million in 2013. The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to move some of that money another year or so into the future to provide immediate salary cap relief.
IT'S ALL HUNKY DORY
After signing a restructured contract, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger attempted to put the kibosh on rumors that the locker room is in disarray.
Similar to what Tom Brady did for the Patriots earlier this week, Ben Roethlisberger freed up cap room for the Steelers by agreeing to restructure his contract.Fantasy Spin:Pittsburgh can use the extra money to re-sign free agent wideout Mike Wallace later this offseason. Roethlisberger racked up 26 touchdowns and 3,265 passing yards in 13 games in 2012.
As expected, the Pittsburgh Steelers are continuing on with their contract restructures in an effort to get cap compliant by the March 12 deadline. On Tuesday it was reported that linebacker Lawrence Timmons restructured his contract and that move cleared $5,299,750 million in 2013 cap space.
Pro Football Talk reports Wednesday via Twitter that Antonio Brown has also restructured...
Following in the foot-steps of Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger and Lawrence Timmons, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley will reportedly also re-structure his contract this week or next. For those of you keeping score at home, the re-structuring of a players’ contract is not a pay cut. It’s actually a way to convert salary money into signing bonus money.
Another day and another $3.08 million has been trimmed off of the Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 salary cap as wide receiver Antonio Brown had his contract restructured on Wednesday. When you couple that savings with the $5,343,750 million created on Tuesday by the contract restructure of linebacker Lawrence Timmons, you will see that $8,423,750 million has been trimmed in the last two...
Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that a source has informed him that the Steelers and WR Antonio Brown have agreed restructure his contract in order to create some extra cap space.
According to a ”source with knowledge of the transaction,” Browns base salary of $4.5 million has been reduced to a minimum salary of $650,000. Pittsburgh will convert the remaining...
