Steelers and Cam Heyward Agree to Five-Year Deal Through 2023

It’s the news that Steelers fans have been on the edge of their seats about, but the day prior to Labor Day 2020, the team finally got the deal done.

Cameron Heyward, one of the best players on the team’s defense, is sticking around, inking Sunday night a five-year deal that will keep him in black and gold through the 2024 season.

Heyward said Sunday that: ‘Pittsburgh is where I belong,’ a clear indication that he never wanted to go anywhere else.

To say getting the deal done for the Steelers is important is an understatement. The team needed to get Heyward under contract to avoid the question all season long if he was going to be back in 2021 or not.

He had a huge 2019 for the Steelers, as he was a first-team AP All-Pro selection for the second time in his career.

How good was he last season? How about nine sacks, 22 quarterback hits, 11 tackles for a loss and six passes defended while leading all NFL defensive linemen with 83 tackles.

Breathe easy Steeler Nation, your defensive captain is sticking around for a long time to come.
