You're contract argument holds no water. A simple restructuring of his contract takes care of the cap situation. It's not that difficult to understand lol.
He's only got three years left under contract at cap hits at almost $20 million each season.
A base salary turned into a bonus isn't the cure all with only three years left.
An EXTENSION, with the money he'd get with it, is the only real answer.
I'm betting not.
The Steelers can easily lower his cap hit by converting his 2013 salary into bonus money which then gets spread over the remaining 3 seasons on his contract.
And then what? Same problem in 2013 and 2014.The Steelers can easily lower his cap hit by converting his 2013 salary into bonus money which then gets spread over the remaining 3 seasons on his contract.
Sooner or later, if the Rooney's REALLY want to keep Ben around, they are going to have to pay him.
If they give Ben $10 million up front? His cap hit for 2012 is still about $13 million.

SB = Signing Bonus
MB = Misc Bonus
C = Cap hit
2013 Current S=11.6, SB=5.2, MB=3.8, C=20.6
2014 Current S=12.1, SB=0, MB=3.8, C=15.9
2015 Current S=11.6, SB=0, MB=3.8 C=15.4
Restructure. Take 10 million of 2013 Salary and convert to Signing Bonus. New 3 year cap structure:
2013 Current S=1.6, SB=8.5, MB=3.8, C=13.9 (6.7 cap savings)
2014 Current S=12.1, SB=3.3, MB=3.8, C=19.2
2015 Current S=11.6, SB=3.3, MB=3.8 C=18.7
The numbers are crazy... my co. runs 63 employees on 4 million... wow...
just a reality check....
The way the article reads hes still on that show me the money bs.. ultimately his performance this yr will prohibit him from making huge money... looks like TO cancer in the making...deuces wallace
