Pittsburgh Steelers clears up $7 million in cap space with Alex Highsmith contract restructure

The Steelers had roughly $11 million in cap space before agreeing to this restructure with Highsmith. Adding another $7 million could be crucial as Pittsburgh puts the finishing touches on its roster throughout the summer.

In 66 career games, Highsmith has logged 242 total tackles, 29.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles, and three interceptions.

Highsmith is an important part of the Steelers’ defense. He starts opposite of superstar defender T.J. Watt and part of a talented front seven that also includes Cameron Heyward, Keeanu Benton, and Patrick Queen. The Steelers may still invest more resources in the defense during the 2024 NFL Draft, but they won’t need to panic about edge defender.
