Steelers Sign Third-Round DT Javon Hargrave, Lock Up 2016 Draft Class

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Friday that they’ve signed third-round DT Javon Hargrave to a four-year contract.

The Steelers have now officially locked up their entire 2016 draft class.

Hargrave, 23, was taken with the No. 89 overall pick by the Steelers over a month ago. Many felt that the Steelers got good value with Hargrave in round three, and he should give them a quality interior defensive lineman to develop in the coming years.

According to OverTheCap.com, Hargrave receives a four-year contract worth $3,033,256 to go along with a signing bonus of $693,256.

During his senior season at South Carolina State, Hargrave recorded 22 tackles for loss, 13.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles and was named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year.
