The #Steelers and DE Stephon Tuitt have agreed on a 5-year, $60M extension, source said. Heavy on up-front money.

The Steelers sticking to their contract principles (not negotiating during the season and only negotiating with QBs with one year left) should be remembered when you look at the Rams and Aron Donald. We don't play that!

Hope it doesn't hurt us next season with Bell though. That's going to be tricky.

Awesome. Awesome, awesome, awesome. We have our elite DE bookends locked up for the foreseeable future. Probably the best tandem we've ever had as a 3-4 team.

They aren't going to pay Bell. They aren't going to franchise him again, either. He walks after this year.

They won't just hand a HOF player to another team without getting something back. That would be stupid.

If Bell stays healthy this year, he's 100% looking at the franchise tag next year (guessing he isn't going to sign a L-T contract without testing FA).

A guy making $14.5M who's a FA after the season won't bring the draft picks people think to be worth trading.

That is my thought as well. Either way we are pretty much guaranteed pick 97 as well

Overpaid...once again, the Steelers bidding against themselves.
