Cameron Heyward contract extension stalls with Steelers

Per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, DE Cameron Heyward is concerned about the lack of progress on his final contract year with Pittsburgh. (ESPN)

Fantasy Impact:

While Heyward would like to retire a Steeler, it might not happen given the contract extension stalemate. The Steelers took Heyward as the 31st overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft and he amassed 54 sacks, 257 solo tackles, 117 QB hits, and 297 combined tackles to date. The biggest wrench in the works for fantasy owners would be if Heyward holds out, but there is no indication of that at the moment. IDP owners in leagues with less than six defensive players on their rosters should still find DE value on the waiver wire if things go south before the season starts.
