The Pittsburgh Steelers have created nearly $6 million of cap room for this season after restructuring the contracts of receiver Antonio Brown, tight end Heath Miller and kicker Shaun Suisham on Tuesday, league sources told ESPN.

The Steelers plan to use the majority of the extra cap room to offset the large number of injured players who have been counting against the team's salary cap.

The move is expected to end Brown's contract demands for now. Sources tell ESPN that the Steelers, in a rare move for the team, moved up $2 million of Brown's salary into a signing bonus for this season, sources told ESPN. The restructuring raises Brown's salary from $6 million to $8 million this season.

TE Jesse James opening eyes at Steeler camp

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had success drafting mid-to-late-round pass-catchers, with the top three receivers on the depth chart falling between Rounds 3-6.

The next might be fifth-round tight end Jesse James, whose ability in the red zone has stood out during training camp. The 6-foot-7 tight end had several nice touchdown grabs there, including a diving catch on an over-the-middle Landry Jones toss, between the safety and corner in the soft spot of the zone coverage. He has an outstretched touchdown grab off a lob to the corner of the end zone, beating his man.

With tight end Heath Miller sidelined for Sunday's Hall of Fame game against the Vikings, James should see plenty of reps.

Fantasy Impact:

James has average speed, but offsets that with good hands and being a huge target at 6-foot-7 and 261 pounds. The Steelers also drafted Sammie Coates in the third round, and the former Auburn receiver is in the long-term plans, but James has a chance to play earlier because the Steelers aren't as deep at tight end and Coates probably needs a transition year. If Miller continues to be banged up, it's possible James makes his mark in what is expected to be a high-powered offense.

Pittsburgh TE Heath Miller is a No. 3 or 4 option for the offense but nothing more.

He might’ve been a 1,000-yard receiver as a 25-year-old in Haley’s offense. Miller’s scoring rate is concerning. After 27 touchdowns in his first five years, Miller has 16 in his last five, for an average of 3.2 per year. He surpassed three scores in one of those five seasons.

The Steelers placed a waiver claim for tight end Tim Wright, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. When coupled with reported interest in second-round tight end Maxx Williams during the draft, the Wright claim indicates the franchise is at least exploring tight end alternatives.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say Miller isn’t an elite tight end but he’s still very solid. He can put up 600 yards in this offense at age 32. And the truth is the Steelers still need him. He’s a safety valve for QB Ben Roethlisberger. In fact, we predict Miller for 588 yards and just under 3 TDs for 2015. However he's ranked 20th on our list and likely won't get a lot of draft attention in typical leagues. With Antonio Brown, LeVeon Bell and Martavis Bryant, that's a strong core of talent to monopolize the red zone touches.
