DeCastro signed to new 6-year deal

Steelers G David DeCastro played in his first Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

The Steelers have announced that the team has signed guard David DeCastro to a new six-year deal with the franchise through the 2021 season. Financial terms of the new contract were not disclosed.

DeCastro started all 16 regular-season games for the second consecutive year in 2015, en route to earning his first career Pro Bowl selection and first-team Associated Press All-Pro honors. Entering the 2016 season, his 40 consecutive games started streak is the sixth-longest active streak among NFL guards.

DeCastro has started 50-of-51 games and each of his three postseason contests since entering the NFL as a first round (24th overall) draft pick of the Steelers in 2012.
