It’s a busy news day for the Pittsburgh Steelers. After cutting three players Monday evening, the team has signed RBs Coach Eddie Faulkner to a contract extension. NFL Insider Aaron Wilson was the first to report the news.
It’s not known how many years Faulkner’s contract has been extended but in Pittsburgh, positional coaches typically sign two-year extensions. Faulkner signed a two-year deal previously during the 2021 offseason.
Hired in 2019, Faulkner has been a solid coach aiding in the development of RBs Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren. Harris has made a Pro Bowl and became the first Steelers’ running back to rush for over 1,000 yards in his first three seasons.
