PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Having established himself as a key cog on the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line, the team has picked up the fifth-year option on guard David DeCastro.

The former first-round draft pick of the Steelers back in 2012 will now remain with the team through at least the 2016 season, but a contract extension is likely to be coming at some point.
