The fourth-year player is part of a defense that has plenty of new faces entering the 2014 season.
Gone are the likes of Ryan Clark and LaMarr Woodley.
Among those coming in is nose tackle Cam Thomas from San Diego, joining Heyward on the D-line.
“You know there's been texts where we got to reach out to guys,” Heyward says. “Everybody seems like a good guy. And everybody just wants to win. Everybody comes to this organization with one goal - to win. And what better organization than the Steelers?"
The team's OTA's start a couple weeks after the draft, on May 27th.
