For Diontae J to take 18M AAV speaks to 2 things IMO: 

-Worried about a down 2022 season with the present QB situation. 
 

-Happy to test market after said transition period at QB and get re-paid.  
 

Win-win for both sides IMO.   Claypool is almost certainly gone after this season though.

I think it’s a great deal for both parties.  Steelers get their guy locked up and DJ gets to test the market while still being in his “prime”.

 

As a Steelers fan I’m actually kind of surprised anything got done.

I think he lost money in that deal.  Assuming he's healthy going into he off-season, he would been one of the top WR's in that market.  Signing for "Kirk" money seems low for him compared to what I think he would have gotten in the offseason.  He's already produced, even if he were to have a down year, he would have been fine.

That said?  I feel like the Steelers made out best on this one.
