Steelers' Pouncey Inks $44 Million deal

Updated: Tuesday, June 24 2014, 11:49 AM EDT

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed center Maurkice Pouncey to a five-year extension that will keep the three-time Pro Bowler as the anchor of the offensive line for the rest of the decade.


The new deal averages $8.8 million per season, making Pouncey the highest-paid center in the NFL.


The 24-year-old Pouncey was entering the final year of the rookie contract he signed after the Steelers took him with the 18th overall selection in the 2010 draft. He's the only center in league history to make the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons.


Pouncey had a season-ending right knee injury in the first game of the 2013 season against Tennessee. He's been fully participating in organized team activities, which ended Thursday.
