The Pittsburgh Steelers signed long snapper Kameron Canaday to a two-year contract on Tuesday and the numbers related to that deal are now known.

His base salaries for 2020 and 2021 are $910,000 and $1,065,000, respectively. Canaday’s cap charges for 2020 and 2021 are $1.135 million and $1.29 million, respectively.

The  Steelers signed Canaday prior to needing to restricted tender him. The right of first refusal tender amount this year for restricted free agents is $2.133 million, so the Steelers were able to sign  for much cheaper than that amount.
