Cameron Heyward only wants to play for one NFL team: the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The veteran defensive lineman posted Sunday on X that his goal is to finish his career with the Steelers.

His comments come after he admitted earlier this week that he could play elsewhere in 2025 amid a contract standoff with the team. The 35-year-old is entering the final season of a four-year, $65.6-million deal with the Steelers.

A groin injury limited Heyward to just 11 games last season. He recorded two sacks, his lowest output since 2012.

Pittsburgh drafted Heyward in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. His 80.5 sacks are tied for second most in franchise history, only trailing teammate T.J. Watt.
