Ben Roethlisberger signs new contract with Steelers, takes $5M pay cut for 2021 season >>>> [urltargetblank]https://www.nfl.com/news/ben-roethlisberger-agrees-to-new-deal-with-steelers-for-2021-season[/urltargetblank]

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Roethlisberger's new contract includes a structure that will save the Steelers about $15 million in immediate cap space, helping the Steelers move closer to the projected salary cap, which has a floor of $180 million. The new deal achieves this lower cap number by utilizing a signing bonus, a minimum base salary and voidable years, with Roethlisberger helping out by taking a $5 million pay cut that lowers his 2021 salary from $19 million to $14 million, Pelissero added.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Big Ben will receive a $12.925 million signing bonus and a $1.075 million base salary as part of the new contract, which includes four voidable years in order to spread out his cap hit.

Seems like a good option for the Steelers.

Haskins can sit it for another year at least.

Either Roethlisberger was going to retire or dummy years were going to be added to his contract to reduce the cap. This move was expected. He's playing for $14M this year but only about $3.66M of that will count towards the 2021 cap.
