Steelers Restructure and Extend McFadden

In what seems to be a good deal for the Steelers, they have restructured Bryant McFadden's contract.  McFadden was due to make $4.75 million as the second year of a deal he signed as a free agent with the Arizona Cardinals last off-season.  Instead McFadden signed a new three year deal for $7.5 million.  It appears there is no signing bonus involved so the salary and cap hit will be $2.5 million/year.  If he doesn't pan out the Steelers cut him and the ramifications are minimal.

I expect McFadden to battle with Joe Burnett and Keenan Lewis for a starting corner spot.  As I've said before I think William Gay is going to be the odd man out in the battle for roster spots.
