Steelers' T.J. Watt focused on football, not contract status

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt is entering the final year of his contract. The two-time All-Pro said he never gave any thought to holding out in hopes of reaching a long-term deal.

"I love this team, I love all of the coaches and this staff here, and the players," Watt said. "I am excited for this season and that's why I'm here."

Watt has remained mum on the status of his negotiations. Team officials have previously communicated interest in signing Watt, but per a longstanding team policy, the Steelers don't negotiate contracts once the regular season begins.
