Ben Roethlisberger And James Harrison Willing To Restructure Contracts For Steelers

NFL

Pittsburgh Steelers star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and outside linebacker James Harrison are willing to restructure their contracts to help the club become more flexible this offseason, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune.

Roethlisberger and Harrison are currently the two highest paid players and the team. Roethlisberger is currently in the midst of an eight-year, $102 million deal, and Harrison is halfway through a six-year, $51.175 million deal.

The Steelers have already restructured the contracts of LaMarr Woodley, Lawrence Timmons, and Ike Taylor to help clear cap space.

Last season, Pittsburgh posted a 12-4 record but was eliminated in the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs by the Denver Broncos.
