Steelers TE Heath Miller Agrees To Restructure Contract

Another Steelers player has put his hand into the restructured contract pile as Scott Brown reports via Twitter that tight end Heath Miller is restructering his contract to help free up salary cap room for this year. The Steelers rewarded Miller with a six-year, $35.3 million contract extension back in July of 2009 that included a $12.5 million signing bonus.

Miller was set to count around $5.6 million against the cap this year with a base of around $3.4 million. The Steelers will likely turn half of that base salary or more into signing bonus money and stretch that amount out over this year and the next 3 years as 2014 is his final year under contract. Miller joins Ben Roethlisberger, James Harrison, Chris Kemoeatu and Brett Keisel on the list of players who have agreed to restructure their contracts.

    I’m being realistic… but in my eyes… it will be the Jets going to the Super Bowl this year. Jets are making all the right moves and acquisitions. Steelers just got 1 year older… I don’t buy the more experienced… it’s all about speed and the Steelers have lost a step. The secondary will the downfall for the Steelers. However, if they pick up Asante Samuel and McFadden moves to nickel… my tune will change.

  • That is major

    No chance whatsoever of picking up Samuel, nor do they really need him. They need someone to step up in the secondary badly, but I don’t think a big FA acquisition or trade would do it. It takes a long time to learn Lebeau’s schemes.
