Package Deal? Terrell Edmunds Recruits Brother Tremaine

Terrell Tremaine and Trey Edmunds

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Terrell Edmunds has seen what free agency is all about, having returned to the Steel City on a one-year pact for this season. He has the chance to dip his toes into the unrestricted free agency pool again this time around. If staying with the Steelers is in the cards, might he bring along his brother, Tremaine Edmunds, a talented linebacker whose contract is up in Buffalo?

“I mean, hopefully, he gets the deal that he wants and everything from there,” Terrell said Monday. “But, you know, man, if he comes here, Steeler Nation, y’all got a good one.”

The Edmunds played together at Virginia Tech and were the first pair of brothers to be taken in the first round of the same NFL Draft, with Tremaine going 16th overall to the Bills in 2018 and Terrell following a dozen choices later. Both have spent the entirety of their careers so far with the franchises that took them. Their brother, Trey Edmunds, spent time with Pittsburgh, too.

With an unclear situation at linebacker heading into the off-season, Terrell was asked if the two could be a bundle. He’s already expressed his interest in staying in black and gold.

“I think I could make a package deal just for my family because, you know, they split up for games and everything like that,” Terrell answered. “To get my mom and dad to come to one home base every week, I’d do that.”

Terrell was on the field for at least 88% of the team’s defensive snaps in all but one of the 15 contests he played in this year. He notched 70 total tackles, two sacks, and five passes defended in 2022, showing that his level of play is worthy enough to be a viable option at this level. Whether he’ll remain with the Steelers — and for how long, if he does — is up in the air as of right now.

“I’m not really expecting anything,” Terrell said of the possibility of a multi-year deal. “I’m just going into it head-first and whatever happens, happens. I’ve been through it last year. I know the ups and downs of it. I know everything that goes with it. So, whatever happens now, hopefully, happens out in everyone’s favor and we all can just come to a mutual agreement.”

His familiarity with the team was a large factor in his return prior to this campaign. He alluded to the fact that the team has some unfinished business going forward.

“Sometimes, through that process, I wouldn’t say so much (that it) humbles you,” Edmunds said. “When you get opportunities, just to jump out for them. We had the opportunity to come back to the Steelers, that’s what I jumped out for, just because I knew the guys, I knew the team, and everything that came with it. Coming back this year was great … We didn’t get to where we wanted to go, especially the playoffs and going to the Super Bowl. We didn’t get the opportunity. But, hopefully in the following years, I wish the best for them and I wish the best for me.”
