Steelers working on extension for guard David DeCastro

The Steelers are working on extending one of their brightest offensive stars, even if it’s not Antonio Brown.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, the Steelers have made some progress on a contract extension for guard David DeCastro.

He’s making $8.07 million under the fifth-year option of his rookie deal, but he’s clearly someone they want to keep around after an All-Pro season. The former first-round pick from Stanford has helped stabilize a line that was at one time the thing that held back a potent offense.

And the fact DeCastro has just the one year left is probably the key to any discussions, as they have been hesitant to deal with players with longer times left on their deals.

  1. This guy doesn’t have enough talent to make the Ravens 90 man roster. It is easy to see the reason the Steelers are nicknamed ” the Ravens little brothers.” Cheers!

  2. Pay the man, he is a star on the rise.
    I’m willing to chip in to get this done after the way
    he planted Burfict to the ground. That play says it all.

  3. It’s fun to watch Decastro play the game. He’s reminiscent of Alan Faneca: he’s not as good as Faneca yet, but he could be. I anticipate that he and the team will work something out, and he’s worth it.

  4. Ravens fan here. Steeler’s brass not idiots. They know that you build a team from the inside out. Take care of the big guys first. Brown will get his money. But Brown is worthless if Ben is on his ass all of the time.

    Go Ravens
