Steelers Rumors: Diontae Johnson Opens Contract Talks; Deal Not Certain Before Season

The Pittsburgh Steelers have reportedly started contract discussions with receiver Diontae Johnson, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The Pro Bowler is seeking an extension as he heads into the final year of his rookie contract. Johnson has a $3.1 million cap hit in 2022, which ranks 63rd in the NFL at receiver, per Spotrac.

Pittsburgh is looking to retain the wideout, but Dulac noted that the contract talks "doesn't mean they will sign him before season."
