Steelers sitting at 11th in available salary-cap space

Despite having one of the most active offseasons in a very long time, things are looking good for the Pittsburgh Steelers in terms of salary cap space. According to NFL reporter Albert Breer, the Steelers have the 11th-most cap space with $15.29 million.

Here is how the top 15 break down with the Chicago Bears leading the way with a staggering $32.2 million.

1) Bears $32.20M
2) Panthers $27.09M
3) Cardinals $26.03M
4) Jets $23.80M
5) Lions $23.43M
6) Colts $22.91M
7) Cowboys $20.01M
8) Texans $16.68M
9) Packers $16.22M
10) Browns $15.92M
11) Steelers $15.29M
12) Eagles $14.50M
13) Bengals $14.43M
14) Saints $13.60M
15) Patriots $13.36M

What are the Steelers going to down with all that cap space? My money is on Pittsburgh locking up star outside linebacker Alex Highsmith to a big contract extension. Highsmith is coming off of a career season and could price him right out of the Steelers budget with another big season.
