Haeg’s cap charge in 2021 will be just $1.5 million and his cap charge in 2022 is scheduled to be $3.1 million. He is due a $500,000 roster bonus in March of 2022.
Originally selected in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts, Haeg played last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The signing of Haeg could ultimately impact the Steelers compensatory draft pick ledger sheet, per Nick Korte of Over the Cap.
As for the Steelers, signing Joe Haeg cancels out the 7th round 2022 compensatory pick generated by Tyson Alualu, but with the likes of Alejandro Villanueva & James Conner still waiting to be signed, they could get a better comp pick back soon.
