Chris Kemoeatu Agrees To Restructure Contract To Provide Cap Relief
Steelers left guard Chris Kemoeatu has agreed to restructure his contract to help provide even more salary cap for the Steelers in 2011 according to Scott Brown on Twitter. Kemoeatu joins quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, linebacker James Harrison and defensive end Brett Keisel on the list of players that have agreed to have their 2011 base salary turned into signing bonus money to help clear cap room.
Kemoeatu signed a 5-year, $20 million deal back in February of 2009 and has started camp this year on the Active PUP list due to knee swelling. There is no word on the restructured amount, but Kemoeatu was scheduled to count around $4 million against the cap this year prior to his restructure.
