NFL Free Agency is officially here, and the next few days will feature several Pittsburgh Steelers rumors. The Steelers have made a few moves, and they might not be done yet. With that in mind, here are a few of the more interesting rumors and news tidbits on the Steelers.
Ladarius Green Contract Details
The Steelers signed Ladarius Green earlier this week, and the terms of his contract are now out.
Ladarius Green gets a four-year, $20 million deal with the Steelers. Truly a year-to-year deal. He gets $6M in 2016, $11M in first 1 years.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 10, 2016
Compared to the other contracts TEs signed this offseason, getting Green for $20 million is great value. He'll be counted on to help replace the retired Heath Miller.
Steelers Want Cortez Allen To Take A Pay Cut
The Steelers want CB Cortez Allen to take a pay cut, reports ESPN. Allen has completed two years of the four-year, $24.6 million extension he signed. The Steelers are tight on cap space and Allen is set to have a $4.4 million salary. He missed 15 games this season and four the previous year. He's never played in all 16 games during his NFL career. If Allen doesn't take a pay cut, he'll likely be cut. Doing so would save the Steelers over $1 million in cap space, and $4.4 if he's designated a post-June 1 cut.
