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.
Regarding Levi Brown contract: Cardinals renegotiated it down to vet minimum before the trade. Levi not a cap issue for @Steelers.— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) October 3, 2013
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.
