The Steelers continue to restructure contracts of veterans while they entertain their first veteran free agent at their facility on the South Side.

Wide receiver Steve Breaston, who played at Woodland Hills High School, will visit with Steelers coaches today.

Breaston, who was cut by the Kansas City Chiefs, was in Cleveland on Wednesday visiting with the Browns.

In the meantime, Antonio Brown became the second Steelers player to restructure his contract, creating about $3 million in salary cap room in 2013.

On Tuesday, Lawrence Timmons restructured his deal.

The Steelers are working on restructuring Ben Roethlisberger's contract, which is nearly completed. LaMarr Woodley also is a candidate to restructure his deal.

The Steelers were approximately $14 million over the salary cap before they began their annual restructuring of contracts to create room.

They have to be in salary-cap compliance by 4 p.m. March 12.
