Steelers, Maurkice Pouncey not discussing extension yet

Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey could see his price tag go way up, thanks to center Alex Mack's lucrative deal with the Cleveland Browns.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Pouncey could be seeking a deal similar to Mack's five-year, $42 million deal--once negotiations start. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that the Steelers have not yet opened up contract discussions with Pouncey.

He has one year left on his contract, which is typically when the Steelers sign their good young players to extensions. The team has a 20-year tradition of not negotiating contracts once the regular season starts, so it's expected that discussions will begin once training camp opens.

The matter is a little complicated for Pouncey, who is working his way back from a torn ACL. He's currently considered questionable for OTAs. The Steelers also just re-signed backup center on March 12.
