Steelers 2010 Salary Cap Analysis Of Roster


Now that the 53 man roster is set and the 8 players have been signed to the Steelers practice squad, it is time to look at the players under contract and how the payroll shakes out heading into week 1. as most know, there is no salary cap in 2010, but the Steelers made it known that they will treat the payroll and roster as if the salary cap was in place to help in future years when and if a new CBA is reached. These contract numbers and amounts are not exact, but should be close as I keep close look out on the numbers from the NFLPA as they come in and am constantly updating my spreadsheet. I feel I am well within a million dollars right now and perhaps even much closer. Let me know if you find any discrepancies that do not look right as I do so many of these that I might have transcribed an error very easily.
