He added he wants to play for three more seasons, which would be two more years beyond what he’s already under contract for. 

Heyward indicated via Ray Fittipaldo that he plans to report for minicamp and training camp but isn’t sure how much he’ll participate without a new contract. 

This past summer was the first time in Heyward’s long career where he missed OTAs in Pittsburgh. 

Heyward, 35, is a former first-round pick of the Steelers back in 2011. He was entering the final year of his six-year, $59.2 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed when he signed a four-year, $71.4 million extension in 2020.

He’s due a base salary of $16 million in the final year of the deal. 

In 2023, Heyward appeared in and started 11 games for the Steelers and recorded 33 total tackles, two sacks, six tackles for loss and one pass defended.
