The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed defensive end Cam Heyward to a six-year contract valued at $59.25 million. Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was one of the first to break the news.

The 26-year-old Heyward, who hails from Pittsburgh, also took to social media to express his excitement of staying with the team he has played for the last four seasons. Heyward was the 31st overall pick by the Steelers in the 2011 NFL draft out of the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Heyward, who becomes the 11th-highest-paid defensive end in the NFL, has not missed a regular season game for the Steelers the last four years and has accumulated 143 tackles, 15 sacks and a forced fumble.
