New Contract Details For New Steelers ILB Tanner Muse

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed unrestricted free agent inside linebacker Tanner Muse this past week and the details of that one-year deal have surfaced.

According to the NFLPA database, Muse, who played for the Seattle Seahawks last season, signed a one-year contract that totals out at $1.01 million, the minimum salary for his credited seasons. No signing bonus was included in the deal so none of Muse’s contract is guaranteed. Last season, Muse made the NFL minimum as a member of the Seahawks.

With no signing bonus involved, Muse’s salary cap charge for 2023 will be just $1.01 million. The Steelers used just $70,000 of available 2023 salary cap space by signing Muse after roster displacement in the Rule of 51 takes place.

Last season with the Seahawks, Muse, who was selected in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Las Vegas Raiders, registered 16 total tackles and one pass defensed in 17 games played. The Clemson product logged just 80 snaps on defense in 2022 with the Seahawks and another 325 on special teams.

For his NFL career, Muse has played in 23 games and has 20 tackles and one pass defensed. He’s expected to be a special teams ace in Pittsburgh as a member of the Steelers.
