Terrell Edmunds signs rookie contract with Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers are set for training camp with rookie defensive back Terrell Edmunds under contract.

The Steelers signed Edmunds, the team's first-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, to his four-year rookie deal Tuesday. It's a $10.8 million deal and includes a signing bonus of almost $6 million, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

As with all first-round picks, Edmund's contract comes with a team option for a fifth year.

The 6-foot, 217-pound Edmunds provides versatility on the Steelers' defense, and he can play on the back end of coverage as a safety or chip in at linebacker if needed. His ability to play linebacker could pay off as the Steelers seek to fill the absence of Ryan Shazier.
