NFL Trade Rumors:
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 $3.85 million into a signing bonus that will be prorated over the remaining five years on his contract.
Pittsburgh stands to gain $3.08 million in cap space with this move.
They recently restructured the contract of LB Lawrence Timmons, so the trend continues. The Steelers are reportedly working on Ben Roethlisberger‘s contract as well. This offers immediate help, but balloons their future cap commitments to the point where they could be in really bad shape if it’s not properly managed.

Fans go through this concern every year because most just don't understand the real numbers and what lies ahead. Thank God Omar Khan does.
Here is the 2014 big picture for you....
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.
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.
