Steelers Gave New DL Cam Thomas A Two-Year, $4 Million Contract
The contract numbers are in for new Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Cam Thomas and the former fifth-round draft pick was given a two-year deal worth $4 million, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today Sports.
Specifically, Thomas will have base salaries of $1 million in 2014 and $2 million in 2015 and he was given a $1 million signing bonus in addition.
The 2014 cap charge for Thomas will be $1.5 million and his 2015 cap charge will be $2.5 million.
Thomas is expected to be the backup to Steve McLendon and he will also be groomed to play some defensive end as well. His signing eases the loss of Al Woods, who signed a two-year, $5 million contract with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday.
In case you are scoring at home, the Titans gave Woods $1.9 million guaranteed while the Steelers gave Thomas $2 million guaranteed.
