The Steelers organization has not yet confirmed the deal.

Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote earlier today that, “the team is attempting to restructure the contracts of five players to get under the $120 million salary cap by Thursday. If they do so, the team may not have to release any more players.”
