The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to turn to their highest-paid stars in an attempt to alleviate their salary cap problems.
Now, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the Steelers will be trying to work with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and outside linebacker James Harrison to restructure their current deals. Roethlisberger has a base salary of $11.6 million for 2012, while Harrison's base is $5.56 million. Both players appear to be open to reducing their base salaries by taking more up-front money that can be prorated over the remaining life of the contract to reduce their cap hits.
