According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers’ tight end Mark Bruener accepted a pay cut to stay with the team last week. He was scheduled to make a base salary of $2.05 million in 2003, but that number is said to have been halved. The 30-year-old is considered one of the league’s best blocking tight ends and a key component to the Steelers’ running game.

Bruener has missed 14 games the last two years due to knee and shoulder injuries, and now has to compete with new teammate Jay Riemersma for playing time. Jay will be the team’s receiving tight end and will not be negatively affected by Bruener’s presence.

Gerry Dulac, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports for the Sporting News that Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jay Riemersma will become the team's third-down tight end because the coaches want someone who knows how to get open in the middle of the field. But Riemersma won't be an every-down tight end with incumbent starter Mark Bruener still in the picture


my other afc north contribution....hehehe
