Wide receiver Steelers Dionte Johnson sat through training camp in search of a new contract, and now he has what he wants.
According to multiple reports, Johnson and the Steelers agreed to a two-year, $36 million contract extension.
Johnson, 26, was approaching the fourth and final year of his rookie contract. The short-term deal gives him an immediate pay raise and allows him to pursue free agency while he’s still in his prime.
The Steelers took Johnson in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, and his production has grown with every year of his career. Last year, he caught 107 passes for 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns.
