Steelers Reach Extension on Tomlin; Sign 1st Round Pick

A commitment to a balanced offense means solidifying a weak offensive line

The Steelers made noise today extending head coach Mike Tomlin to a contract that goes through to the 2016 season.  The Pittsburgh Steelers also came to terms with their first pick in the 2012 draft offensive guard David DeCastro on Tuesday.

From the Post Gazette:

DeCastro, a guard from Stanford and the last of their ’12 draft picks to sign, came to terms on a four-year contract that should be worth nearly $8 million, with a club option on a fifth year.

He will report Wednesday with the rest of his new teammates to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe for the start of training camp.
