Steelers bring back Miles Killebew on a 2-year deal

With the 2024 NFL league year kicking off at 4 PM, the Steelers have made a couple moves in retaining players who were on their 2023 roster. After it was reported that long snapper Christian Kuntz has signed a three-year deal to stay in Pittsburgh, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler has reported the Steelers have signed special team’s captain Miles Killebrew to a two-year deal.

Miles Killebrew just finished his third season in Pittsburgh, the last two of which he was a team captain, and his eighth total season in the NFL. Playing 111 defensive snaps in 2023, his most since 2017, Killebrew is still known primarily for his special teams where he was selected First-Team All-Pro last season. Notching 26 tackls, once again the most since 2017, Killebrew was also credited with a safety on a special teams punt block in Week 5 against The Baltimore ravens.

With Killebrew’s contract being reported at $6.5 million over the next two seasons, it will likely come with a smaller salary cap hit for 2024. If Killebrew‘s contract is structured like his previous two-year deal, his cap hit for 2024 will likely be $2.23 million.
