PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Pittsburgh Steelers fans can breathe a sigh of relief. First-round pick David DeCastro will be in training camp this summer.
Pittsburgh and DeCastro came to terms on a four-year contract worth $7.81 million Monday, which means the offensive guard — which many predict to start this season — will report to training camp at St. Vincent College in Latrobe Wednesday.
The deal has an option for his fifth year.
With this signing, it appears wide receiver Mike Wallace will be the only player not reporting to training camp on time, as he’s currently holding out with no end in sight.
DeCastro was the No. 24 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He is expected to compete for a starting job at right guard this summer.
