According to ESPN’s Brooke Pryor, the Pittsburgh Steelers will save space by restructuring their contract with Eric Ebron.
According to Pryor, the Steelers and Ebron revamped their deal and freed up $ 3.9 million in cap space. Tribune-Review’s Joe Rutter suggests the move convert $ 5 of Ebron’s $ 6 million salary into a signing bonus and add four vain years.
Ebron’s contract expires after the 2021 season, and General Manager Kevin Colbert hasn’t mentioned any future plans. In his first year with the Steelers, Ebron caught 56 passes for 558 yards and five touchdowns. He started nine out of 15 games played.
The Steelers had around $ 8 million in open space after cornerback Steven Nelson was released. It will take the team approximately $ 5 to 7 million to sign their eight draft picks.
