The Steelers have restructured the contract of LaMarr Woodley to create another $4 million in salary cap space for the team in 2013.
Woodley, signed through 2016, was scheduled to earn a $9 million salary this year. By turning about $5 1/2 million of that into a signing bonus, it would open the cap space this year, pushing off the salary-cap accounting into future years.

My question is who are they trying to re-sign? I would hope that it would be Lewis, now whith that said if they would resign Lewis or possibly Wallace, could tghey front load the deal in signing bonus to avoid cap problems in the future?

I couldn't resist-the image of Woodley chowing down was too funny.

Woodley's contract to trim his base salary from $9 million to $3.6 million in 2013 and free up $4 million of cap space.

The other $5.4 million due Woodley in 2013 will be converted into a signing bonus that will count against the salary cap over four seasons.

as long as he produces, I have no problem with this

I'd rather have kept Harrison (who I understand the door is not permanently closed for), but acquiring Ed Reed would gain us one of the greatest FSs of all time, and most importantly, really piss off Baltimore fans........I'd be down for it.
