Mark March 15 as Steelers S-C Day – victory over the Salary Cap has been achieved.

After contract restructures by CB Ike Taylor, LBs Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley. OT Willie Colon and QB Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers found themselves right around the point where they could tender offers to all of their restricted free agents, and sign their impending draft picks.

NT Casey Hampton’s $ 5.9 million contract wasn’t restructured, and the thought was they were saving Snack’s contract as the ace up their sleeve.

If that was the case, they played that ace Thursday, getting the 11-year veteran to trim his base salary from $ 4.89 million to $ 2.8 million, and eliminate a workout bonus, which was set at $ 1 million. A total of $ 3.09 million was trimmed from the salary cap, per BTSC friend Brian McIntyre.

This really should be the last salary cap-inspired move the Steelers make this offseason, and it could put them in a position to sign WR Mike Wallace to the long-term deal GM Kevin Colbert said was his priority this offseason. With the Steelers probably a bit north of $ 5 million under the cap, they could also retain the services of WR Jerricho Cotchery, who is currently a free agent.

The end result, essentially, is the Steelers paying a bit more in salary this year than in normal years, so BTSC is asking all Steelers fans to buy at least one more Steelers-licensed product as a way to say thanks to ownership for not completely gutting the team, the way some owners have done in the past.

(seems like a good spot to segue into a reminder about The Jersey Rules, which will be coming out in late July. The league switched its jersey manufacturer from Reebok to Nike, and the Committee is already leaning toward the purchase of at least one jersey of the new makers.)

Every cloud has a black and gold lining, though. The way I see it, without the need to track this information down seemingly on an hour-to-hour basis, the BTSC community never would have met McIntyre.

It’s about the small things, ladies and gentlemen.

Another Steelers vet has redone their deal, as reports say nose tackle Casey Hampton has restructured his contract and help the team get further under the salary cap.

The move basically means that he will be back with the Steelers in 2012.

The nose tackle restructured the final year of his three-year, $ 21 million contract that was scheduled to pay him $ 4.89 million in base salary and a $ 1 million workout bonus in 2012.

He was scheduled to count $ 8.057 million against the cap.

That brought them approximately $ 10.5 million under the $ 120 million salary cap before Hampton’s deal was restructured.

According to Rotoworld’s website Hampton restructured a bit today.  He took a reduction in base salary of $ 2.8 million down from $ 4.89 million he was due.  He also agreed to eliminate his workout bonus and saved the Steelers $ 3.09 million against the cap, which is great for free agency.  This was a great move for the Steelers and Hampton.  Hampton being 35, coming off injury and having $ 8.1 million against the cap before this would not have worked out well for the Steelers.  The Steelers have not confirmed this information yet.

Mike Florio from Pro Football Talk posted the latest updated cap numbers of all 32 teams on Sunday and shows the Pittsburgh Steelers as being $ 10.5 million under the cap. Now in his post he says that those numbers reflect 2011 rollover cap space, which the Steelers will use, and franchise tags amounts, which the Steelers of course did not use. Although Florio does not clarify, I believe that $ 10.5 number does not include restricted tenders or exclusive rights tenders, which would make sense and match my numbers. I also assume Florio is accounting for the LTBE (likely to be earned) roster bonuses Read more […]

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger restructured his contract with the organization Thursday, clearing approximately $ 8 million in salary cap room.

Roethlisberger won’t lose any money for reworking his contract, but the move will bring the Steelers very close to the NFL’s salary cap of $ 120 million. Pittsburgh was projected to be approximately $ 8 million over the cap before this move.

Roethlisberger’s contract was worth $ 11.6 million against the salary cap before restructuring. This is the second straight season Roethlisberger has reworked his deal to help ease salary cap issues for the Steelers.

This move could play a big part in the Steelers potentially re-signing wide receiver Mike Wallace. He is a restricted free agent.
