The Steelers are working to get their salary cap in order by restructuring the contracts of Ben Roethlisberger and Lawrence Timmons.

The Steelers are working with agents to restructure some of their veteran players' contracts as they move to get under the NFL's salary cap as required by March 12.
Among those they will restructure are Ben Roethlisberger and Lawrence Timmons, and both could be done before the end of this week. They may want to know if they'll have enough to try to sign free agent receiver Steve Breaston, who plans to visit their South Side facility Thursday or Friday.
They also met with Bill Parise, the agent for James Harrison, at the NFL combine to discuss his contract situation.
None of those whose contracts are restructured will lose money. The new deals do not add years to the players' contracts either, they merely are reworked for bookkeeping purposes to create salary cap room.
