ESPN - [Full Article]

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.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Despite catching just three TD passes last season, Heath Miller finished just outside the top 10 in fantasy points among tight ends. Some of that was because other guys got hurt, but Miller also plays in an explosive offense in which he ends up with plenty of one-on-one matchups.

Fantasy Downside
There are a lot of other options for Ben Roethlisberger to go to in this offense, and Miller doesn't run like he used to following a knee injury a few years ago.

Bottom Line
Miller is going in the 16th round in most drafts. He won't be as flashy as some of the guys being taken ahead of him, but he rarely misses a game and will have some big ones. Miller is worth a late-round flier.
