Steelers agree with linemen Pouncey, Foster

The Antonio Brown sweepstakes hasn't stopped the Pittsburgh Steelers from doing big business with their big people.

Pittsburgh also signed guard Ramon Foster, slated to become an unrestricted free agent on March 13, to a two-year deal.

The Steelers have agreed to a three-year deal with Maurkice Pouncey, which will pay him $11 million per year, according to ESPN. His new contract is worth $8.25 million, Dulac reports, citing a source.

Giroux then got his 20th on a backhander 10 seconds into the third, and it was 5-3 when Laughton's deflection beat Holtby at 7:48. Ovechkin opened the second-period scoring with a power-play tally at 2:32 with a wrist shot through goalie Brian Elliott's legs.

He is now signed through the 2021 season, where he will continue to anchor the Steelers offensive line.

He earned his seventh Pro Bowl selection in 2018 and served as one of the team's offensive captains this past season. The move to lock Pouncey up is great news for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the running game in 2019 and beyond.

The Steelers are still talking with teams about trading Brown, and a deal could happen as early as Friday.
