Diontae Johnson responds to rumors he’s unhappy with Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson denies he’s unhappy with the franchise.

With wild rumors that Diontae Johnson was unhappy with his Pittsburgh Steelers Contract situation, the talented wide receiver seemed to have buried this idea with a tweet.

These rumors first circulated in Mark Kaboly’s post for The Athletic on Friday. Johnson has a year left on his rookie deal with the Steelers. Given that he was selected in the third round of Toledo in 2019 NFL draftJohnson has yet to make big bucks in the NFL. With Pittsburgh seeing a changing of the guard at quarterback for the first time in years, there’s a lot of pressure on Johnson.

Here, Johnson is doing his best to quash rumors that he’s unhappy with his Steelers’ contract.

Diontae Johnson contract rumours: Pittsburgh Steelers WR denies misfortune

Johnson has had his best season as a pro. In his first Pro Bowl campaign, he had career-highs in receptions (107), yards (1,161), and touchdowns (8). Pittsburgh qualified for the AFC playoffs in Ben Roethlisberger’s final season in the league. With Mitchell Trubisky and eventually Kenny Pickett taking over Big Ben, things will be very different for Pittsburgh.

While Johnson might not like the idea of ​​going into this fall without a long-term deal, he could make even more money by backing up what he did on the gridiron last year with another stellar season. Pittsburgh may have a rich history of drafting wide receivers, but Johnson could force his way onto the franchise tag talk if he backs out. Stability is of course preferred here.

Overall, Pittsburgh is a team with a lot of variety. If Trubisky or Pickett lives up to the quarterback position and the patented Pittsburgh defense hits home, the Steelers can win double-digit games and make it through the postseason. Should the quarterback’s game be a tire burn and the defense pull back, it could be an absolute disaster in western Pennsylvania. Johnson is in the thick of it…

If Johnson controls what he can, he should be making plenty of money in his free hand one way or another.
