Bouchette tweeted out this morning that the restructuring has continued for the Steelers, now with Willie Colon.
@EdBouchette: #steelers restructure OT Willie Colon contract to save cap space. $3.8 M of his $4.5 M salary for 2012 becomes bonus pro rated over 4 years
The savings that Colon gives them, they are now about $8 million over the cap, it gets them one step closer to getting compliant. With this rework of his deal now, it tells us they are most likely going to keep him around and give him another shot to actually finish an entire season.
