by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Steelers veteran free safety Mike Mitchell has revealed that he had surgery in the offseason to repair a groin injury, per Associated Press. He added that despite occasional pain, he is ready to roll.

Mitchell, who could be moving to a strong safety spot in 2015, started all 16 games in his first season with Pittsburgh last year. His 71 total tackles was a career-high.

S Mike Mitchell could switch positions
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin brought up the possibility of moving Mike Mitchell from free safety to strong safety, according to ESPN. Tomlin said he is "not opposed" to the switch.

Mitchell, who signed a five-year, $25 million contract in 2014, could take over the role at strong safety due to the team moving on from long-time Steeler Troy Polamalu.

The 27-year-old finished last season with 71 total tackles, three passes defensed and two forced fumbles in 16 starts.

Report: Steelers restructure Marcus Gilbert, Mike Mitchell contracts
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The Steelers created $6.2 million in cap space by restructuring two contracts, according to a report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Tackle Marcus Gilbert and safety Mike Mitchell had tweaks made to their contracts that won't affect their income for the 2015 season. However, the money they were slated to make from their salaries and roster bonuses are being applied as signing bonuses to free up cap space for the upcoming league year. 

The restructured signing bonuses will be prorated and affect their cap number for future seasons. 

The restructured deals were likely done to help free up money to re-sign linebacker Jason Worilds, linebacker Arthur Moats and cornerback Brice McCain.
