So for the first show of 2021, Mr. 2 AM is going to take a look at Steelers news of the day and divisional round action from yesteryear, both delightful and disastrous. I’m also looking forward to your stories as well. This leads to the topic of the latest episode in the BTSC family of podcasts.
Roethlisberger has one year remaining on a contract that will cost the Steelers $41 million against the salary cap. That’s the biggest cap hit of any quarterback in the league. The Steelers are projected to be $21 million over the cap with just 35 players under contract.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are heading into the 2021 offseason. With free agency looming followed by the NFL draft in April, the Steelers will have a plethora of decisions and moves to make before making their first draft selection. As for the NFL combine and player pro days being in limbo as well as the opportunity for players to return to college who opted out of the 2020 college football season, there may be limited information in regards to draft prospects this year.
