Steelers living out purgatory promised by salary-cap crunch

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers took a flyer on Mike Hilton five years ago, and the undersized cornerback repaid their faith by becoming one of the most versatile defensive backs in the NFL, a relentless 5-foot-9 tornado who maximized every last ounce of his talent.

A talent that ultimately became too expensive to keep.

When Hilton hit the open market last spring, the Steelers - grappling with a one-time-only unexpected dip in the salary cap because of the COVID-19 pandemic - had no recourse when Cincinnati offered Hilton a four-year, $24 million contract.
