Steelers LB Dupree signs franchise tender

Linebacker Bud Dupree signed his one-year franchise tender with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers announced Dupree, a first-round pick in 2015 coming off of a career-best 11.5 sacks in 2019, signed the tender which guarantees him $15.8 million in 2020.

The Steelers don’t have a pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, having dealt their selection — 18th overall — to the Miami Dolphins last October in exchange for defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick.

Dupree, 27, has until July 15 to sign a long-term deal with the Steelers.
