Steelers | Team Notes

The Post Gazette reports two Pittsburgh Steelers veterans may be headed in different directions. The team is closer to signing RB Jerome Bettis to a long-term contract and close to ending OC Dermontti Dawson's long career with the team. Bettis is hopeful his deal can be completed by Friday. Art Rooney also has expressed optimism that a contract will be in place before Friday. Bettis disputed reports that he would receive anything near a $10 million signing bonus as part of the deal. The Steelers are not expected to tender an offer to restricted free agent OL Chris Conrad and they may not tender DL Jeremy Staat, another restricted free agent.
