Bud Dupree Signs Franchise Tender

Pittsburgh Steelers pass-rusher Bud Dupree signed his franchise tender on Thursday morning. The linebacker will earn just over $15.8 million for the upcoming 2020 season. Dupree is coming off his best season as a pro, finishing with 11.5 sacks, 16 tackles for a loss, four forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. There is a possibility that the Steelers try to get Dupree locked up with a long-term contract but at the very least he will be around in 2020 to anchor Pittsburgh's pass rush.

Bud Dupree Hit With Franchise Tag

The Pittsburgh Steelers placed the franchise tag on linebacker Bud Dupree on Monday. This move doesn't come as a big surprise, as standout pass-rushers rarely hit the open market. Dupree had a career-high 68 tackles (49 solo), three passes defensed, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries over a full season for the Steelers in 2019. He's started at least 15 games each of the last three seasons and has really helped to solidify the team's interior defense along with standout linebacker T.J. Watt. Pittsburgh's defense should be owned in all formats next season, while Dupree will also be a solid IDP target as an up-and-comer.

Bud Dupree Expected To Receive Franchise Tag

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree is expected to receive the franchise tag, according to league sources. Dupree had a career year across the board in 2019, posting 68 tackles (49 solo), 11.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries over a full season. Paired with All-Pro linebacker T.J. Watt, the Steelers interior defense is set for years to come. The 27-year-old Dupree has put himself on the IDP radar with his big season in 2019 heading into fall drafts.
