New Steelers LB Arthur Moats Signed A One-Year Qualifying Contract

If you like the versatility that former Buffalo Bills linebacker Arthur Moats brings to the Pittsburgh Steelers, you’ll like his contract even more.

Moats, who was originally drafted in the sixth-round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of James Madison, signed a one-year qualifying contract worth $795,000 with the Steelers.

In 2014, Moats will receive a minimum base salary of $730,000 and was given a $65,000 signing bonus in addition. Due to the terms of his contract, he will have a reduced cap charge of $635,000.

Moats signing barely eats into the Steelers available salary cap space following top 51 roster displacement.
