Steelers extend Vince Williams through 2021 season

It’s been a busy day for contract extensions in Pittsburgh.
Shortly after the Steelers announced a new deal with kicker Chris Boswell, the team announced that they have also struck a new deal with linebacker Vince Williams.
Williams was in the final year of his contract and will now be tied to the Steelers through the 2021 season.
“It’s a great culture here.
A great fan base.
I take pride in being in Pittsburgh.
I feel like the people here are no nonsense, hard-working individuals.
I love this place.” Williams was set to make $2 million this season and Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports the total value of the new deal is more than $20 million.
Williams was a sixth-round pick in 2013 and has missed just one game in his five seasons with the team.
After starting 17 games in his first four seasons, Williams became a full-time starter last year and finished the season with 89 tackles, eight sacks and an interception.
