The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to get things done prior to the start of the free agent signing period when it comes to re-signing a few of their own players and it appears as though guard Ramon Foster will get a new deal done as well.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Steelers are close to finalizing a new contract with Foster.

It should be noted that La Canfora is the only one reporting this at the time of this post. However, it does make sense that the Steelers would like to get Foster re-signed prior to the start of free agency Wednesday evening.
Assuming it gets done, one would think that a new deal for Foster would be for three years and worth around $5 million a season.
Foster, who originally joined the Steelers in 2009 as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee, has started 87 regular season games during his first seven years in the league.
