  • Ben Roethlisberger signs new contract with Steelers, takes $5M pay cut for 2021 season >>>>

    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Roethlisberger's new contract includes a structure that will save the Steelers about $15 million in immediate cap space, helping the Steelers move closer to the projected salary cap, which has a floor of $180 million. The new deal achieves this lower cap number by utilizing a signing bonus, a minimum base salary and voidable years, with Roethlisberger helping out by taking a $5 million pay cut that lowers his 2021 salary from $19 million to $14 million, Pelissero added.

    NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Big Ben will receive a $12.925 million signing bonus and a $1.075 million base salary as part of the new contract, which includes four voidable years in order to spread out his cap hit.

  • Seems like a good option for the Steelers.

    Haskins can sit it for another year at least.

  • Either Roethlisberger was going to retire or dummy years were going to be added to his contract to reduce the cap. This move was expected. He's playing for $14M this year but only about $3.66M of that will count towards the 2021 cap.
