Derek Watt Restructures Contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been able to maneuver themselves to be under the projected 2021 NFL salary cap, but that doesn’t mean they can stop there.

They’re set to lose a ton of players to free agency, and they’re going to need as much money as possible. That’s why we expect a few more contract restructures to take place.

One of those happened yesterday with Derek Watt restructuring his deal to save $880,000. It doesn’t seem like much, but every penny counts.

Defensive lineman Stephon Tuitt, and corners Joe Haden and Steven Nelson could also be receiving extensions or restructures. Those could all come in the next ten days.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
