Steelers Bring Back Darrius Heyward-Bey on a Three-Year Deal

Darrius Heyward-Bey

The Steelers today announced they have re-signed veteran wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey to a three-year, $3.8 million contract according to the team’s official website.

The 29-year-old Heyward-Bey played a surprising amount of snaps for the high-powered Steelers, catching 21 balls for 314 yards and two touchdowns, but at this point in his career his value is primarily on special teams.

Playing for a winning organization is likely more important to DHB than big money as he made millions as a top-ten draft pick with the Raiders in the pre-rookie salary cap days while the Steelers have always been a team that values veteran leadership and role players more than most.

The Steelers wide receiving corps is absolutely loaded with the incomparable Antonio Brown, Martavius Bryant, the emerging Markus Wheaton, and Sammie Coates looking to contribute more after his rookie growing pains.

Heyward-Bey probably won’t see a lot of action in 2016.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL.
