Report: Ben Roethlisberger restructures Steelers contract

Days after Tom Brady [1] worked out a new contract with the Patriots that frees up cap room for the team, Ben Roethlisberger [2] tweaked his deal with the Steelers, according to NFL.com’s Albert Breer [3].

The Steelers are expected to save about $6 million with the new pact, which converts salary into bonus money. Unlike Brady, Roethlisberger did not add years or money to his deal.

Roethlisberger was slated to carry a salary-cap figure of $19.595 million in 2013.
