The Pittsburgh Steelers signed free agent tight end Eric Ebron to a two-year, $12 million contract on Friday and the numbers related to that deal are now known.
According to Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle, Ebron’s new two-year deal totals out at $12 million million and includes a signing bonus of $5 million. Ebron’s base salaries for 2020 and 2021 are $1 million and $5.5 million, respectively. His cap charges for 2020 and 2021 are $3.5 million and $8.5 million, respectively.
This can essentially be looked at as a one-year, $6 million contract for Ebron as the Steelers can get out of it next March and save $6 million in cap space in the process in 2021.
Ebron is expected to sign his new deal on Friday.
