News coming out tonight that the Steelers are already in the process of freeing up cap room and have restructured Lamarr Woodley's contract. – Steelers restructured OLB LaMarr Woodley’s contract to clear $6.56 million in cap room.
It's a safe bet that they've started this process well before tonight if you ask me and Woodley's deal is a good place to save significant money. They are an estimated $25 million over the cap heading into the 2012 league year so expect more information to come down in the coming days and weeks of other players who's deal will be restructured. Other players also to watch for would be Ben Roethlisberger (cap hit $11.67 million), Casey Hampton (cap hit $8.56 million) , and Lawrence Timmons (cap hit $9.125 million) to name a few.
