2015 Salary Cap

Steelers Restructure Marcus Gilbert’s Contract To Clear $3.724 Million In Cap Space

The Pittsburgh Steelers have started the process of clearing salary cap space ahead of the new league year as tackle Marcus Gilbert has had his contract restructured, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com.

Gilbert reportedly had a roster bonus of $3.5 million along with $1.15 million of the base salary due him in 2015 converted into a signing bonus to create $3.724 million in 2015 cap space.

Gilbert, the Steelers second round draft pick in 2011, signed a 5 year, $30 million contract extension last August.

Gilbert’s new cap hits moving forward will be: 2015 $3,256,000, 2016 $6,461,000, 2017 $6,511,000, 2018 $6,561,000 and 2019 $5,846,103.

It’s possible that we could hear about more restructures in the coming days as wide receiver Antonio Brown and center Maurkice Pouncey are also candidates to have money due them in 2015 turned into signing bonuses.
