Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell is a definite start here in Week 2. Although he missed his only field goal attempt in Week 1, conditions weren't great and he was perfect on three extra-point attempts. In Week 2, Boswell will be in a high-scoring affair against the Kansas City Chiefs. With both teams likely to be flying up and down the field, Boswell should get multiple opportunities in this one. Start Boswell with confidence.
Pittsburgh Steelers beat reporter Ed Bouchette expects the team and kicker Chris Boswell to agree to a new long-term contract. The team tendered the restricted free agent at a second-round level this offseason and he will play the 2018 season on a one-year, $2.91 million contract. It appears likely that the two sides will hammer out a long-term extension before Boswell becomes an unrestricted free agent. Boswell should see plenty of scoring chances playing with an explosive Steelers offense.
Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell has signed his second-round tender, worth $2.9 million for the 2018 season. Boswell was a restricted free agent but will remain with the Steelers at least through the 2018 season. There are reports that the team still wants to sign Boswell to a long-term deal. Boswell hit 35 of 38 field goal attempts in 2017 and should remain one of the busiest kickers in the league while playing for a high-powered Pittsburgh offense.
