Kenny Pickett and the Pittsburgh Steelers have yet to strike a deal and it’s about time they made it happen.
Kenny Pickett is the last first-round draft pick to sign, and since he’s in contention for the Steelers’ starting role, why hasn’t it happened yet?
A quarterback should already have signed a contract, especially since he’s vying for a regular role.
In college, Pickett was someone who was in the spotlight and so talented. When the Steelers picked him in the first round, it was a great pick.
Pittsburgh needs a solid quarterback with Big Ben leaving, so maybe the Steelers are just being extra cautious about Pickett’s contract rather than jumping right in.
There’s nothing wrong with being specific about contracts, but it’s almost July so it’s time to print it out and get that bad boy ready.
Pickett has so much potential and can be successful with the Steelers.
The Pittsburgh Steelers need to sign Kenny Pickett and make it official
According to the Boston Globe, there is a contract, and Mark Powell from FanSided says that this delay has to do with the payment structure.
His expected contract will be around four years and $14 million, including a fifth-year option. Pickett is also the last Steeler in this draft class to sign, so it’s time for him to take the money on offer and focus on the team.
While it’s understandable for him to want more money upfront, at the same time he needs to understand that money is to come.
Now I’m not saying Pickett isn’t ready for a job because he very well could be, but this is a first contract and a solid one, so take it and let the work show the Steelers that more money upfront is there is it worth.
This contract is finally signed, But for now, Pickett needs to focus on winning the starting job and getting the team to trust him. His leadership will be necessary for the Steelers because they need someone like him to lead offense and we’ve seen what Pickett did with Pitt.
That quality is in him and it’s time to accept the contract and get to work. It’s the way.
