Woodley restructures contract


Rotoworld is reporting that L. Woodley has agreed to restructure his contract to save the Steelers 6.65 million under the 2012 Salary cap. If the 25 million over figure I've been seeing is correct this still leaves the Steelers in need of cutting approx. 19 million just to become cap compliant. The article mentioned Ben, Troy, Harrison, and Timmons as possible additional targets for restructuring.

I would love to see a good breakdown of who counts what against the cap among players who are likely to be released. For example, does the difference in Hamptons 4+ million salary and his 8+ million cap figure mean that we take a 4+ million dollar cap hit even if we cut him? I assume so. How do these numbers play out with L. Foote, ect... The Steelers might have to take on a lot of "dead space" under next years cap even making intelligent and necessary cuts.
