- Kaboly notes that the deal will save the team $3.8 million in cap space this year, leaving them approximately $7.5 million under the cap.
This is a move that has been rumored for a while. Pittsburgh has been active restructuring deals, as their cap situation has not been healthy. S Mike Mitchell and OT Marcus Gilbert recently restructured their deals as well.
The Steelers gave Pouncey a five-year extension worth over $44 million last summer.
Pro Football Focus ranked Pouncey as the No.6 center in 2014.
