The Steelers sured the most consistent part of their roster Thursday.
Center Maurkice Pouncey and guard Ramon Foster each re-signed with Pittsburgh. Pouncey signed a 3 year deal, worth $11 million a year, making him the highest paid center in the NFL according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Foster signed a two year deal, although the financial details weren’t disclosed.
Foster and Pouncey both started all 16 games in 2018, and were part of an offensive line which held opponents to the fourth-fewest sacks in the league. Over the past three seasons, the Steelers offensive line has yielded the second-fewest sacks among all NFL teams.
Foster has started 131 out of 146 games with the Steelers, including all 11 postseason games since joining the team as undrafted free agent in 2009.
Pouncey has started 108 regular season contests, and 7 postsesaon contests since joining the team as first round pick in 2010. He was named to his 7th Pro Bowl this past season.
