B.J. Finney Wants to Stay in Pittsburgh

Offensive lineman B.J. Finney wants to stay a Steeler.

Speaking with the Steelers’ Missi Matthews, Finney expressed his desire to remain in Pittsburgh as he looks towards free agency this off-season.

“Absolutely, we’d love to stay,” Finney said. “My wife and I love it here. The amount of people we’ve got to meet. The city, we love the city. And just the people in the organization, we really love it.”

Finney is set to become an unrestricted free agent after four years with the Steelers. He signed a one-year, $3.095 million contract last off-season to stay with the team in 2019.

With the injuries and suspensions that plagued the offensive line last year, Finney’s versatility was invaluable as a plug-and-play option for the Steelers. He has seen time at center and both guard positions over his career.

With his future with the team uncertain, Finney said that it is hard to explain his emotions about potentially leaving.

“It’s not bittersweet for me, it’s just sweet,” Finney said. “Being a childhood fan of this franchise and then getting the opportunity to play for them, you can’t say anything bitter about it. It’s just sweet.”

Clubs and free agents can begin negotiating deals on March 16th, with free agency beginning in earnest on March 18th at 4:00 PM.

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward has been named NFLPA Community MVP for Week 1.

Heyward was honored for installing his first Little Free Library, a book-sharing box placed in underserved communities around the Pittsburgh area.

Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that “inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.”

The installation of the book-sharing boxes marks the launch of the Rufus and Judy Jordan Literacy Project, a new initiative of the Cameron Heyward Foundation that will work to promote children’s literacy and honor his late grandparents, both of whom were lifelong educators in Pittsburgh.

Drafted in first round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, Heyward has spend his entire career in Pittsburgh. He is a three-time Pro Bowler, and has twice received First-Team All-Pro honors.

Heyward and the Steelers agreed to a four-year, $71.4 million contract extension on Sept. 6 that will allow him to retire in Pittsburgh and make him the highest-paid defense player over the age of 30 in NFL history.
