Breaking Down Brett Keisel’s 2 Year Contract

The Steelers re-signed Brett Keisel to a two year deal yesterday. As is almost always the case, the financial details weren’t immediately available, but I have them for you now. Here is a breakdown of his contract. The two year deal is for $3 Mil, including a $500K signing bonus.

Player Year Base Salary Signing Bonus Salary Cap Number Dead Money Savings If Cut
Keisel, Brett 2014 $1,000,000 $250,000 $1,250,000 $500,000 $2,500,000
Keisel, Brett 2015 $1,500,000 $250,000 $1,750,000 $250,000 $1,500,000

As you can see, the deal is structured to make the veteran defensive lineman’s contract easily fungible next season.
