In their quest to create salary cap room, the Steelers have gone to a number of players, including one with the biggest number on the books.
In doing so, they've created $15 million in cap room this week.
But none had the ability to create space quite like heir quarterback, who signed a new three-year, $80 million deal last spring. He converted his $8.5 million in base salary to bonus, spreading the hit over the next two seasons.
Of course, the Steelers have some big holes to fill, with defensive lineman Javon Hargrave leaving for Philadelphia, and Foster leaving an opening at guard which won't be easy to replace.
