The Pittsburgh Steelers have no plans to cut veteran safety Troy Polamalu.

However, the defensive standout is a candidate for a restructured contract.

The Steelers want to lower his $10.8 million salary-cap figure.

The Steelers are over the salary cap by roughly $15 million.

They also have a $9.754 million salary-cap figure for transition player Jason Worilds.

Polamalu is one of the top defensive players in Steelers franchise history.
