Steelers Sign Demarcus Ayers To Four Year Deal

The first of seven Pittsburgh Steelers’ rookies have signed today. The team has inked 7th round pick Demarcus Ayers to a four year contract, according to Aaron Wilson.

Contract details have not been announced but under the new CBA and rookie slotting, we have a good idea of what the terms will be. Dave Bryan wrote the other day that Ayers should come in with a cap charge of $469, 913 for his rookie year.

Ayers was taken with the 229th pick of the 2016 draft. Last year’s 229th pick, Ben Koyack, signed a 4 year/$2.349 million deal with just under a $70K singing bonus.

Ayers should get more, according to Dave, who believes it will be a 4 year/$2.419 million deal with just under an $80K bonus.

Out of Houston, he was drafted to give strong competition as a punt returner. That will be his only path onto the roster.
