The San Francisco 49ers have exercised the fifth-year option to keep defensive end Arik Armstead under contract through 2019.
The team announced the move Monday to pick up the option worth about $9 million. The deal is guaranteed for injury and will become fully guaranteed next March.
Armstead was taken 17th overall in 2015. He has six sacks and 56 tackles in 30 career games. Armstead played just six games last year before a season-ending broken hand.
San Francisco also waived linebackers Jimmie Gilbert Harrison Phillips Jersey
, Boseko Lokombo and Donavin Newsom; and defensive backs Dexter McCoil and Channing Stribling.
The Niners signed seven undrafted free agents: WR Steven Dunbar, TE Ross Dwelley Ereck Flowers Jersey
, QB Jack Heneghan, OL Alan Knott Alex Mack Jersey
, OL Jamar McGloster, DL Niles Scott Eli Apple Jersey
, and S Terrell Williams.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are ditching their "bumble bee" throwback uniforms for something with a more 1970s feel.
The team announced Wednesday it will wear replica jerseys of the 1978 and 1979 clubs that won back-to-back Super Bowls when the Steelers host the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 28. Team president Art Rooney II said the choice of using the '78-79 jersey was fitting. The franchise will spend the next two seasons honoring the 40th anniversary of the teams that pushed Pittsburgh's Super Bowl total during the 1970s to four.
The move means the Steelers are ending the use of their 1933 throwbacks that featured black-and-gold horizontal stripes that made the team resemble a pack of bees. Womens Orlando Brown Jr. Jersey
