Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Pittsburgh Steelers signed right tackle Marcus Gilbert to a new six-year contract Tuesday through the 2019 season.

Gilbert, 26, was the only Steelers offensive lineman to start every game in the regular season last year.

He has started in 34 of the 35 games he's played over three seasons since the Steelers selected him in the second round of the 2011 draft out of Florida.
