    Signing Heyward could be tough

    So of the 2011 draft, which by the way, was a ridiculous class there have been 2 first round picks signed to extensions.

    Patrick Peterson 5 years, $70 million, $48 million guaranteed

    Tyron Smith 8 year ext (10 years total) making it $110 million, $40mil guaranteed ($28 mil of that new money), and a $10 million signing bonus

    Guys on deck to be extended from the first rookie cap year include JJ Watt, Cam Newton, Julio Jones, AJ Green, Robert Quinn, Corey Liuget, Cam Heyward, Mike Pouncey, Jimmy Smith, Von Miller, Aldon Smith, Cameron Jordon. All of whom had their 5th year option executed and are under contract thorugh 2015

    Signing him sooner rather than later is going to be for the best. He is a beast, one that not many know about but a guy that could really emerge this year as a rare 10 sack player from a 34 DE. Imo by the end of the year he will be regarded as a top 5 34 DE with Watt (clearly #1) and guys like Sheldon Richardson, Mo Wilkerson, Cameron Jordan, Calais Cambell, ect...

    I agree...we have 6 million in cap space. I would use it to sign Heyward early...hoping he doesn't break the bank once these others set the market.

    If you have watched last years highlight film on NFL Network you will want Heyward SIGNED to a long term deal.

    Just loved the ending where Cam was looking pissed and said "I WANT ONE MORE". You just have to watch it to realize what a true leader this guy is and how he talks to Jarvis on the field is also what this team needs on the D.

    SIGN HIM!!!!!!!!!!

    He told Jarvis jones to "put him on the ground and treat him badly" at one point last season. Gave me chills hearing that lol

    The guy does it all....he stacks and sheds blockers, he collapses the pocket while maintaining his responisbilities (unlike hood EVER did), he can arm tackle RBs, and he is truly a violent player

    He is hands down our best defensive player at the moment. No way the Steelers FO let him walk.

    This won't concern my one bit. We are actually getting some cap space and that is before we adjust some of the biggest salaries like Troy or have $10 mill wrapped up in Worilds. We are actually starting to get in decent cap shape. Heyward ain't going anywhere.

    It's not Heyward I am worried about. The Steelers are not letting him go. I am concerned about the signing of Ben and Heyward and how those huge numbers will effect signing others.
