Breakdown Of Contract Numbers For Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey

Thanks to the contract numbers passed along by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, we now know what all of the yearly cap charges will be for Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, who signed a five-year extension on Thursday.

As  previously noted, Pouncey’s 2014 cap charge in 2014 is $5,000,625 and that’s $263,375 less than it was originally scheduled to be prior to the extension. $1,400,625 of that number is left over signing bonus amortization from Pouncey’s rookie contract.

We’ve already discussed Pouncey’s roster bonuses that he’s due in 2015 and 2016 and both of those amounts aren’t guaranteed until the 5th day of that particular league year. Baring something totally unforeseen, Pouncey will collect $26.5 million through the first three years of his deal.

Pouncey’s highest cap charge will occur in 2017 and that number is $10.1 million. After the 2018 season, there will be no dead money associated with Pouncey as long as his contract isn’t restructured prior to then. If a restructure were to happen, 2017 would likely be the year it is done in.
