The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cameron Heyward came to an agreement with less than eight days to spare, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Heyward, their veteran defensive lineman and captain, agreed to a four-year contract extension Sunday. According to an ESPN report, the contract includes $65.6 million in new compensation and is considered to be the biggest total contract given a defensive player older than 30 in NFL history.

Counting the 2020 season, the deal is five years for $75.1 million.

The Steelers have long abided by a policy that forbade contract negotiations during the regular season. The Steelers are scheduled to open the 2020 season Monday, Sept. 14 at the New York Giants.
