The Pittsburgh Steelers have restructured the contracts of wide receiver Antonio Brown, tight end Heath Miller and placekicker Shaun Suisham to make salary-cap space, according to reports by Adam Schefter.

With the changes, the Steelers will reportedly create nearly $6 million in cap space.

Pittsburgh will use the majority of the freed up money to offset a large number of injured players currently counting against the salary cap, Schefter reports.

Schefter also reported that the restructuring will move $2 million in Brown's 2016 salary to a signing bonus for 2015. The change will boost his earnings this season from $6 million to $8 million.

Pittsburgh opens the 2015 season against New England on Sept. 10.
