If the Steelers did a maximum allowed restructure of Pouncey’s contract it freed up $3.475 million in 2020 salary cap space.
Pouncey is due a $5 million base salary in 2020 in addition to a $3 million roster bonus. Pryor does not say how much of that was restructured so we’ll have to wait and see what the official details are. Below is what Pouncey’s contract would look like if a maximum restructure of his contract was performed.
