Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has agreed to restructure his contract to give the team more salary-cap space, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on Thursday.

NFLPA records cite that Roethlisberger was set to make $11.6 million for the 2012 season. Instead, according to Brian McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog, the quarterback will make $900,000, with the remaining $10.7 becoming part of a signing bonus that will be prorated over the final four seasons of his contract.

The team is right up against the salary cap and has several key free agents to re-sign. That includes Roethlisberger's top target, WR Mike Wallace. The QB is the latest of several Steelers players to redo their deals, including LBs LaMarr Woodley and Lawrence Timmons and OT Willie Colon.
