Steelers WR Diontae Johnson back with team Tuesday

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson is back with the team Tuesday after skipping out on voluntary OTAs last week according to Josh Alper of Pro Football

Pictures and video from Tuesday’s on-field work show Johnson in uniform and going through drills with the rest of the team.  No reason was given for Johnson’s absence last week, but a report last month indicated that Johnson is skipping voluntary work because he’s looking for a new contract. Johnson responded to that with a tweet saying not to “believe everything you see” without elaborating on any contractual matters.

Johnson would certainly seem to be in line for a new deal.  A third-round pick out of Toledo in 2019, the 25-year-old has 254 catches for 2,764 yards and 20 touchdowns through his first three NFL seasons.  He will become an unrestricted free agent next spring of the Steelers do not sign him to a new longterm deal before them.  Either way, Johnson will see a major pay increase in 2023.
