The Pittsburgh Steelers came to terms on a new contract with defensive lineman Chris Wormley on Thursday and we now know the full breakdown of the two-year, $4.5 million deal.
According to Ian Whetstone of Steel City Insider, Wormley received a signing bonus of $1.2 million as part of the two-year deal and base salaries of $1 million and $2.3 million in 2021 and 2022, respectively.
The Steelers brought back Chris Wormley for $4.5 million over two years. $2.2 million this year, including $1.2 million to sign. $1.6 million cap hit this year.
So they got him cheaper than Alualu. On the other hand, I’m not sure how much competition there was for his services.

Wormley’s cap charge in 2021 will be just $1.6 million and his cap charge in 2022 is scheduled to be $2.9 million. After roster displacement takes place, the Steelers will use just $940,000 in salary cap space to sign Wormley.
After the new Wormley deal, the Steelers are now $2,632,586 under the cap and once again, I account for the $792,000 workout bonus placeholder amount.
