    Steelers Sign Shaun Suisham to Contract Extension through 2018 season

    Steelers Sign Shaun Suisham to Contract Extension

    Posted 12 minutes ago


    Kicker's contract extended for four years through the 2018 season.


    The Steelers have announced that kicker Shaun Suisham’s contract has been extended for four years through the 2018 season. Financial terms of the new contract were not disclosed.


    Suisham connected on 30-of-32 field goal attempts in 2013, establishing a Steelers record with a 93.8 conversion mark. His 30 field goals made tied as the third-most in team history and his 129 points ranked fifth-most in a single season.


    Since re-joining the Steelers in 2010, Suisham has made 95-of-109 field goals and each of his 128 point after tries for 412 points. He ranks first in Steelers history with an 87.2 field goal conversion mark and fifth in field goals made (95).


    Suisham entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Bowling Green with Pittsburgh in 2005. He had two stints with the Dallas Cowboys (2005-06, 2009) and Washington Redskins (2006-2009). In his career, Suisham has made 182-of-219 field goals and 229-of-231 point after tries for 775 points in 112 games played.

    Suisham should be entering his prime as a kicker. Probably a safe signing but nothing spectacular.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    If you have to rely on your kicker consistently making 50+ yard field goals to win games then you have other bigger problems on the team.

    Its true, but its nice to know that if you need that last second 52 yard FG to win the game or force OT and you are out of timeouts you have someone to drain it

    I know he has been good for the steelers. I still get nervous when he kicks and I don't know why I haven't had the confidence in him as he deserves.

    Interesting note: in the era of the long-distance kicker, newly re-signed Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham did not attempt a 50-yarder in '13.
