The Steelers have not asked David DeCastro about an extension going into his final season


The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to restructure contracts in the 2021 offseason to help them with their cap issues. They're finally cap compliant which is great news. I would assume they will at least restructure Stephon Tuitt in the near future similar to what they did with Cam Heyward, but what about David DeCastro?


DeCastro is heading into his last season with the Pittsburgh Steelers. His cap hit is $14.2 million and his yearly cash would be about $8.7 million according to Spotrac. If the Steelers were to cut him he would have a dead cap hit of $5.5 million.


At this point, I would let David DeCastro play out the rest of his contract and avoid overhauling the current players on contract who play on the offensive line. The Steelers already have enough issues with their offensive line so why should they create more?


Gerry Dulac recently answered a question why we haven't see the Steelers extend Steven Nelson or David Decastro in his latest Steelers chat with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Dulac says the Steelers have not talked to David DeCastro at all about an extension, but they can restructure Steven Nelson which he expects them to do if they haven't already.
