The Pittsburgh Steelers have restructured the contract of Antonio Brown, boosting his salary to $10.25 million this season.
According to the source, the Steelers moved up $4 million from next year to this year. No new years were added to his deal.
The Steelers are promising a true extension to Brown after the 2016 season.
Once an extension was out of the picture for 2016, Brown privately hoped the Steelers would use the same restructuring tactic as in 2015, when they moved up $2 million of Brown's future salary into a signing bonus.
Brown caught 136 passes for 1,834 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2015.
