The decision, announced Tuesday, means Heyward will have to wait two more years before becoming a free agent.
Analysis: Heyward is coming off a breakout season in which he finished with a career-high five sacks while making 13 starts. The 31st overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft is considered a cornerstone of Pittsburgh's 3-4 defense going forward. The team let Ziggy Hood walk in free agency and has not re-signed veteran Brett Keisel.
