PITTSBURGH, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Defensive end Aaron Smith agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the NFL team announced Wednesday.
Smith, 30, has one year left on his previous contract and is now signed with the Steelers through the 2011 season. The agreement is reportedly worth $25 million.
Last season, he had 61 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks. Smith was a fourth-round pick by Pittsburgh in 1999 draft and has played in 118 NFL games for the Steelers. Only three players -- offensive guard Alan Faneca, cornerback Deshea Townsend and wide receiver Hines Ward -- have been with the team longer.
