Casey Hampton gets a “big snack sized” contract restructure

The Steelers continue to free up salary cap space by reworking contracts of current players, and the most recent is veteran nose tackle Casey “Big Snack” Hampton.
According to a league source, the Steelers got a little further under the salary cap by restructuring the final year of nose tackle Casey Hampton’s three-year, $ 21 million contract. Hampton, who will turn 35 by the start of the regular season, was scheduled to earn $ 4.89 million in base salary with a $ 1 million workout bonus in 2012 and his cap number was $ 8.057 million. Under the restructure, Hampton reduced his base salary to $ 2.8 million and his workout bonus is gone, reducing his cap number by $ 3.09 million.
It’s not known for sure at this time but it’s quite possible that the Steelers added another year to Hampton’s deal if indeed it was a true restructure.

Steelers Restructure Colon’s Contract

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Steelers are facing some tough decisions as they work to get under the salary cap.

On Tuesday, they reduced the amount they are over the cap to about $ 8 million after restructuring offensive tackle Willie Colon’s contract.

According to our news partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the restructuring saves the Steelers $ 2.85 million against the cap.

The restructuring involved turning $ 3.8 million of Colon’s $ 4.5 million salary for the 2012 campaign into a bonus.

The bonus will be pro-rated over the remaining four years of the contract.

Colon has played in only one game over the last two seasons, but signed a five-year, $ 29 million deal in August.

Willie Colon the Latest to Restructure His Contract

The Steelers have restructured the contract of right tackle Willie Colon, reports Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Signed to a five-year, $ 29 million contract last July, Colon was due a $ 4.5 million base salary with a cap number of $ 5.7 million in 2012.

According to Bouchette, Colon’s base salary has been reduced to the league minimum ($ 700,000) with the remaining $ 3.8 million converted to a signing bonus that will be prorated over the remaining four seasons. Colon’s cap number for 2012 is now $ 2.85 million, a $ 2.85 million cap savings.

The Steelers cleared over $ 18 million of cap space with the releases of Arnaz Battle and Bryant McFadden and restructuring the contracts of LaMarr Woodley, Lawrence Timmons and Ike Taylor. The Steelers remain about $ 5-$ 6 million over the cap, so more work needs to be done before March 13.

Colon, 28, missed all of 2010 with an Achilles injury and only appeared in one game in 2011 after suffering a torn triceps in the season-opener. Colon is projected to open the 2012 season as the starting right tackle, with 2011 second-round pick Marcus Gilbert kicking over to the left side.
