    Default Roethlisberger will redo contract to help Steelers meet cap

    Roethlisberger will redo contract to help Steelers meet cap
    Monday, August 01, 2011
    By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Pro Bowl outside linebacker James Harrison have restructured their contracts to help the Steelers get under the salary cap and perhaps free some room to sign players, the Post-Gazette has learned.

    The Steelers are trying to restructure the contracts of at least five players, and maybe six, to get to the $120 million salary cap by Thursday.

    Roethlisberger, who signed an eight-year, $102 million contract in March 2008, will not have the amount or the length of his deal altered, said his agent, Ryan Tollner. But it was restructured to create more cap space for the Steelers in 2011 and future seasons.

    "It was something for Ben to do," Tollner said. "The team needed to free up space and Ben was certainly happy to help out."

    The restructured contracts are not official until they have been submitted to the National Football League office for approval.

    Harrison signed a six-year, $51.7 million contract with $20 million guaranteed in April, 2009.

    Just read on James Harrison's FB page that he's helping similarly.

    Good move, chaps.

    There was really no way Ben or JH could say no in light of recent history although I believe they'd have helped out regardless.

    They aren't going to lose anything restructuring their contracts. It's going to be more about moving money they are going to get around, probably shifting salary to bonuses perhaps. There's not really a whole hell of a lot that can get done.

    I'll be curious to see how much gets saved
