Steelers 2010 Salary Cap & State Of The Roster

It is that time of year again. All of the tenders and tags have been assigned and at midnight Thursday, free agency begins for the NFL. It is time for a look at the 2010 roster of players under contract or tender offer and a look at the projected 2010 Steelers salary cap numbers. At this time, there will be no salary cap for the 2010 season, but the Steelers have said regardless that they intend to treat the season as if there were one in place. The only questionable player below is Patrick Bailey, as he was an exclusive rights free agent and no word has come out about his status. I do however think he will be signed to the minimum and retained, but regardless, we should know for sure in a few days. With Bailey figured in, the Steelers total cap charge total is $116,067,000.00, but this number is deceiving in the offseason as the teams general use the rule of 51, which is the total of the top 51 contracts on the roster. To the best of my calculations, that number is $112,077,000.00. Right now I have the Steelers with 63 players either under contract or tendered/tagged. I also included in the table below, the age, experience and final year of the players current contract. This page will serve as the official starting point going forward for the Steelers 2010 roster and salary cap info.

Updated: 3/9/10 to reflect the Arnaz Battle, Will Allen and Jonathan Scott contracts. Rule of 51 total at $114,072,000.00. Ryan Clark and Antwaan Randle El contract number still coming in.
