The Steelers agreed to terms with five-time Pro Bowl guard Trai Turner on a one-year deal yesterday and he officially signed today. And we now know the financials of the deal. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the one-year deal is for $3 million.

Per Overthecap.com, the Steelers saved $8.75 million in cap space by releasing David DeCastro and have $5.54 million in dead money. The Steelers had $16.5 million in cap space prior to the Turner signing, according to Mark Kaboly of The Athletic. So, the Steelers have around $13 million in cap space now.

Turner said recently on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he expects to “make a splash sooner than later.”


Turner also said he wants to sign with a team that puts him “in the best situation possible to go out and win” and that he’s been working out with Hall of Famer Jackie Slater to get back to full strength after being hampered by a groin injury last season.


"I’m back at 100 percent,” Turner said. “Last year was a rough season for me with injuries and just overall COVID. You go through things and situations arise, but you work through it and you get through it. So, I’m feeling good. I’m just ready to come back and have a phenomenal season.”

Turner is just 28 and was a third-round pick by the Panthers in 2014. Turner has 89 career starts under his belt and made the Pro Bowl every season from 2015-2019.
