Looking Ahead At What’s Likely Next For Steelers Following Heyward Contract Restructure

Not surprisingly, it was reported on Monday that Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Cameron Heyward recently had his contract restructured with it resulting in the team clearing a very much needed $7 million in 2021 salary cap space. Why not surprisingly? Because as I wrote last September after Heyward signed his new extension, the contract structure was set up perfectly for such a restructure to happen and especially due to the expected impact that the COVID pandemic would have on the leagues 2021 salary cap. In short, if you have read this site for any length of time and/or have listened to The Terrible Podcast, what was reported Monday morning concerning Heyward’s contract did not come as a surprise.
