Levi Brown renegotiated his contract before trade was made

Brown will not create cap ramifications for the Steelers in 2013.

Steelers Digest editor Bob Labriola cleared up any residual concerns regarding the Steelers' trade for offensive tackle Levi Brown with a Tweet Wednesday evening confirming Brown renegotiated his contract with Arizona prior to the trade to Pittsburgh.

Further details of the renegotiation were not released.

Suddenly, what's been viewed as a bad deal for the Steelers gets a bit better. With a healthy cap number, the Steelers are parting with a late-round pick next year for a veteran offensive tackle. Our stance in regards to Mike Adams has been his errors are more of the mental variety. Perhaps a tackle with more preparation experience can adjust better to what's needed to start at this level.

And perhaps Adams - who still should be viewed as the starter of the future at the position - can learn from him. All of this assuming no one gets injured in the meantime.
