Steelers sign Chris Boswell to four-year, $20 million deal
The Pittsburgh Steelers may not have been willing to meet Le’Veon Bell’s contract demands for a second consecutive offseason, but it sounds like they had no problem making their kicker a very happy man.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Steelers have agreed to a four-year extension with kicker Chris Boswell that is worth around $20 million.
The #Steelers are locking up Pro Bowl K Chris Boswell on a 4-year extension source said, worth just under $20M. He’s one of the highest paid kickers in the league now.

Stephen Gostkowski of the New England Patriots is currently the highest-paid kicker in the league with an average annual value of $4.3 million on his contract, followed by Graham Gano at $4.25 million and Justin Tucker at $4.2 million.
We have already seen Bell take some not-so-subtle shots at the Steelers over contracts players with other teams got, so we can only imagine how he must feel about a kicker getting $5 million a year.
