For as many players leaving via free agency, a few are actually staying in Pittsburgh.

Offensive lineman Zach Banner took to social media today to let everyone know that he’ll be remaining in Pittsburgh for two more seasons. Per NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala, the deal is worth $9.5 million with a $3.25 million signing bonus.

After all the hard work Banner put in to earn the starting tackle position, he went down with an ACL tear in the first game of the season.

A few weeks ago, Banner tweeted that he would stay off social media until he had a new deal with the Steelers. Last night, Banner was back, leading everyone to believe he would be donning the Black and Gold in 2021 and beyond.

“I’m really, really excited and thankful for the opportunity from [general manager] Kevin Colbert and [head coach] Mike Tomlin, and especially [president, owner Art], Mr. Rooney.”

With Matt Feiler gone and the status of Alejandro Villaneuva up in the air, Pittsburgh will need all of the veterans it can keep.
