Pittsburgh Steelers captain Cam Heyward is going to be a no-show at voluntary organized team activities as he awaits a new contract, and understandably has fans worried about his future with the team. 

During a recent episode of his “Not Just Football with Cam Heyward" podcast, he explained his motivation behind the holdout and said that he wants to be a member of the team, but that "we'll see" what the future holds. 

“I have always attended these, but at this time, it’s just contract negotiations. I want to be a Pittsburgh Steeler, but we’ll see what happens,” he said.

“I’m training hard, nothing I’m not doing on and off the field. I’m doing everything possible. We’ll get there when we get there."

The 35-year-old Heyward, who is entering the final year of his 4-year, $65 million contract, has been a member of the Steelers since they made him their Round 1 selection in the 2011 NFL Draft. 

Do you anticipate a deal getting done in short order?
