Here’s what we know about the Steelers deal to re-name Heinz Field into Acrisure Stadium after Tuesday’s press conference with Steelers President Art Rooney II and Acrisure CEO Greg Williams.
The name change was official as of Tuesday, despite what the giant sign on the building says. The Steelers are working toward getting that and all other in-stadium signage changed before the start of the 2022 season. The new scoreboard sign will look like this:

What about the other side of the scoreboard, with the pair of 35-foot Heinz ketchup bottles? They might stay, Rooney said. Nick Farabaugh
The 15-year deal will run through 2036, longer than the Steelers lease. Rooney said the team plans to extend the lease at some point, but said talks have not yet begun. Alan Saunders
The Steelers are getting a huge increase in revenue from the deal, something that Rooney said will go into more stadium upgrades like this year’s Hall of Fame addition and escalator replacement. Chris Carter
POWER RANKING: Nick Chubb is at the top of the list when it comes to AFC North running backs, but it gets more complicated after that. Carter, Farabaugh, Saunders
George Pickens is a good bet to be the Steelers’ next start wide receiver, Cale Berger writes.
