Steelers guard Ramon Foster financial details of new contract released

The Steelers were able to retain their other free agents at near bargain basement prices, but what about left guard Ramon Foster's new contract?

The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to retain the likes of Robert Golden, William Gay and Darrius Heyward-Bey before they became Unrestricted Free Agents by having only one player surpass the $2 million dollars a year mark on their new contracts.

The team eventually gave Ramon Foster a 3-year deal of his own, but how does his contract shape up to the rest of the players who were recently signed? To be honest, there is a striking comparison to all these contracts. Decent signing bonus with an even distribution of lower salaries spread throughout the 3 years.

For Foster, he might have been able to get more money on the open market, but the thought of playing for a quarterback like Ben Roethlisberger, and a realistic chance to win a Super Bowl in the coming years, was too much. Foster told the media he didn't want to "chase the check," and he did that to the lovely tune of a hometown discount.
