Kinkhabwala: TJ Watt Extension ‘Very, Very Close’

It’s been the question on the mind of Pittsburgh Steelers fans since the beginning of the new league year — When will TJ Watt sign his new contract? Well it’s now currently September, and we’re days away from the Steelers kicking off their season in Buffalo against the Bills. There basically hasn’t been any update on the matter.

But NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala touched on the subject today on their broadcast.




“I’ve been told that they are very, very, close for weeks now and certainly a feeling that this is indeed going to get done,” Kinkhabwala said.


Now it just needs to get done. Watt needs to get back into the team sessions. Even if it’s just for the week leading up to the game. He needs that little bit of contact that they will do. He needs to get the vibe with his new teammates.

“The issue here is that TJ Watt, as hard as he has worked, because let’s make no mistake about this, TJ Watt has been at every single practice, has done every single drill. He’s been at every walkthrough, in every meeting. He has not actually done any team drills. He has not done any live hitting.”


Watt posted a photo of him signing a Terrible Towel onto his Instagram story last night. We all are holding out hope that that’s a sign of things to come with him putting pen to paper for his new contract.


The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
