Contract Notes

WR Antonio Brown signed a $68 million contract extension with the Pittsburgh Steelers on February 27, 2017. All contract details come via a report from Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio who was broke the full contract.  Brown will receive a $19 million signing bonus which is the guaranteed portion of the contract. In 2018 Brown will earn a $6 million roster bonus if he is on the roster on the fifth day of the league year. In 2019 there is a $2.5 million roster bonus due on the 5th day of the league year. Brown's cap charge should remain unchanged in 2017.

Per multiple outlets the Steelers restructured Brown's contract on March 7, 2018 by converting his $6 million roster bonus and all but $915,000 of his base salary to a signing bonus. The move should create $9.72 million in cap space for the Steelers while increasing his cap charge by $3.24 million each of the final four years of his contract.
