Pittsburgh is forced to annually rework player’s contract in order to have cap space to address some of their free agents, so this comes as little surprise.
Miller, 31, signed a six-year, $35.3 million contract with the Steelers back in 2009. He had a cap figure close to $9.5 million for the upcoming season, which was the sixth highest on the team.
Despite coming off of a serious knee injury, Miller totaled 58 receptions for 593 yards receiving and a touchdown over the course of 14 games last season.
We’ll have an update regarding the specifics of this move and how much cap space the Steelers will save once the details are available.
