Safety Terrell Edmunds will be sticking with the Steelers.

The Steelers declined to exercise their option on Edmunds’ contract for this season, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports the two sides have agreed on a new pact. It’s a one-year deal for Edmunds.

Edmunds was a 2018 first-round pick by Pittsburgh and he’s spent most of his four years with the team as a member of the starting lineup. He has 340 tackles, five interceptions, three sacks, and a fumble recovery in his 64 regular season appearances. Edmunds also has 12 tackles in two playoff contests.

Word this month was that the Steelers have interest in free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu for the right price. Edmunds’ return may indicate that Mathieu is going to eventually sign elsewhere before the 2022 season.

  1. Is it me or were there an extraordinary number of disappointments in the first round of the 2018 draft?

  2. The best ability is availability. For all his missed tackles, poor coverage and lack of turnovers, the guy has been on the field for the Steelers. No one can deny that.

  3. Safety position is in good shape, need to extend minkah. Maybe draft a young guy on the second or third.

  4. Better than some, perhaps, but nit as good as many. Eh. If he’s the best available then why not, I guess.

  5. Kevin Colbert’s phoning it in now. Just counting down the days. Could’ve gotten Honeybadger and made a huge difference on defense.

  6. Understand the business move. By not picking up Edmunds’ fifth year option then signing him to a one-year deal for less, the Steelers freed up cap space they can use to extend Fitzpatrick — which they will do this summer. Edmunds knows the system and was slightly less bad last year than in his first three years. Still hoping that the Steelers draft a big-hitting safety on Day 2.

  7. Already knows the system and has good chemistry with Minkah. Has gotten better every year and missed only one game in his career. Much cheaper and younger than Honey Badger This is the less flashy, but smarter move. Safety play wasn’t the problem on our D last year.

  8. First round pick who has third round ability. Probably 15 Safeties better, and 15 Safeties worse. Puts off having to draft a Safety this yr. If someone says his best ability is “availability”, that’s not showing much faith. Due to get injured at some pt. At about 1/5 of what Minkah is gonna get, a very fair $igning tho.
