The Pittsburgh Steelers have reworked the deals of two of their best players in All-Pro guard David DeCastro and standout defensive end Stephon Tuitt in an effort that cleared $13.26 million of cap space in 2018, according to a league source.

Each player agreed to earn the minimum base salary for a player of their tenure in 2018 ($790,000), converting the rest of their base salary into a signing bonus, while also eliminating their roster bonuses that were due soon and converting those into a signing bonus.

For DeCastro, his base salary drops from $3.79M to $790,000, his roster bonus of $3.79M goes away and he collects a signing bonus of $6.79M. This creates $5.092M in cap space for the Steelers.

For Tuitt, his base salary drops from $3.5M to $790,000, his roster bonus of $7.5M goes away and he collects a signing bonus of $10.21M. This creates $8.168M in cap space for the Steelers.
