with injury settlement for Ladarius Green The Pittsburgh Steelers might be carrying more salary cap space than they typically have at this time of year Ryan Switzer Jersey , but that figure saw $550,000 taken off the top on Friday with an update to the NFLPA public salary cap report. In a move first noted by Steelers salary cap specialist Ian Whetstone of Steel City Insider, it would appear the long anticipated injury protection benefit claim for former tight end Ladarius Green has finally hit the books. As per the collective bargaining agreement, Green was eligible for this insurance payout having suffered an injury severe enough to miss the final game of the 2016 season and one that would ultimately lead to his release in May of 2017 after a failed physical. With Green unable to find a place with a new team since being let go because of this injury, the Steelers were obliged to pay him a percentage of the money he would have earned from his previous contract with them. Last year, this resulted in Green receiving a payment of $1.15 million from Pittsburgh and the $550,000 for 2018 represents the final payment they will have to make in regard to his injury.This is not the first time the injury protection benefit clause of the CBA has impacted the Steelers and many will remember the team going through a similar thing with Shaun Suisham after he injured his knee in a preseason game in 2015 and never played again. With Le'Veon Bell bleeding over $855,000 a week back into the Steelers' salary cap on a weekly basis thanks to his holdout, this debit for Green is less significant than it might have been in years past. According to the NFLPA, Pittsburgh is still $11,267,435 under the cap as of Saturday, with another installment from their absentee running back set to return to the account later in the day. With the second wave of free agency set to start on May 7, we take a look at some of the more talented names on the open market."With the passing of the compensatory draft pick deadline for 2019 set for May 7, the NFL is likely to see a second wave of free agency begin on Tuesday. And if the Pittsburgh Steelers have any plans to sign some of the names still available, there is a good chance they will need to move quickly this week or risk seeing the player sign elsewhere this year.For teams like the Steelers who expect to receive additional draft picks in 2020 to make up for the free agents they lost this offseason, the opportunity to sign players without them counting against the formula that determines compensatory draft selections can be an important date on the calendar. Seemingly in line for a third-round selection next year to compensate for the loss of Le’Veon Bell to the New York Jets, based on current projections from OverTheCap.com, Pittsburgh is one of nine teams expected to receive one of the highest compensatory draft picks available in 2020.A lack of salary cap space would seem to suggest that the Steelers will not be significant players during this second round of free agency, but there are still plenty of players looking for new homes who could be in high demand elsewhere.QuarterbackSam Bradford, Matt Cassel, Josh Johnson, Colin Kaepernick, Josh McCown, Brock Osweiler, Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith.Running BackJay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, Jeremy Hill, Chris Ivory Hines Ward Jersey , Marshawn Lynch, Alfred Morris, Bilal Powell, Stevan Ridley, Darren Sproles, Charcandrick West.Wide ReceiverDez Bryant, Michael Crabtree, Pierre Garcon, Dontrelle Inman, Jermaine Kearse, Brandon LaFell, Rishard Matthews, De’Anthony Thomas, Mike Wallace, Terrance Williams.Tight EndAntonio Gates, MarQueis Gray, Jermaine Gresham, Michael Hoomanawanui, Lance Kendricks, Lee Smith, Dion Sims, Maxx Williams.Offensive LineJeff Allen, Joe Barksdale, T.J.

But with a nine-man draft class still to sign that is projected to cost around $3million this year, any significant signings would require the team to create some additional cap space to cover their draft selections.
