    Report: Steelers rework Heath Millerís contract

    Not sure what exactly this means, because he is only signed for 2014 (due to become a free agent in 2015). It can't be a simple restructuring in which we push off the cap hit into future years, since there aren't any future years to push it off into. And there was no mention of an contract extension either, so I guess he just will be getting less money until we hear otherwise.

    Report: Steelers rework Heath Millerís contractPosted by Mike Wilkening on March 3, 2014, 12:00 PM EST
    The Steelers have reportedly created some salary cap flexibility for 2014.
    According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Steelers have reworked tight end Heath Millerís contract.
    Millerís 2014 salary cap number was $9.5 million, Rapoport reported Monday, but it has now been reduced for the upcoming league year. It is not yet known how this will affect Millerís cap number in future years.
    The 31-year-old Miller hauled in 58 passes for 593 yards and one touchdown in 2013. He has played at least 14 games in all nine of his seasons with Pittsburgh, catching 466 passes for 5,273 yards and 40 TDs in regular season play. He has long drawn raves for his fine all-around play, with Cardinals head coach and former Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians recently going so far as to say that he believes Miller remains the best tight end in the game.

    He's either getting less money or there was an extension with sloppy reporting from Rappaport. Either way, this is good news. Hopefully it's a modest extension for 2-3 years.

    Still have no #2. Drafting Ebron is about adding a weapon and planning for the future not as a sub for a released Miller.

    I hope this is an indication that they are clearing as much space as possible to be active in free agency. The draft won't fix the defense.

    Ebron is still a possibility, he would be cheap and a long term option. Bengals drafted Orson having Gresham, moved Orson to HB and Drafted eifert. Cant have enough weapons

    great news. TE salaries are getting ready to escalate.

    I think ebron makes a lot of sense in that regard.

    I agree. I see him in 2 and 3 TE packages. I see him in the slot. They would move him around to create mismatches for the secondary.

    I don't think this has an impact on the possibility of the pick being Ebron one way or another. I don't think that Ebron will be the pick - I suspect, with the increased emphasis on athletic, pass catching tight ends - that he will be off the board at 15. If he is available, I don't think that Miller being back in the fold precludes drafting Ebron. Instead, I think that decision will be dictated by who else is left on the board.

    Not so sure. While Ebron is very athletic...he isn't much in the way of a blocker. I think he lasts until 15.

    I do too. IMO he goes between 15 and 20. I just don't want the Ratbirds to grab him to pair with Pitta.
