Injuries have left the Steelers without many players to turn to at cornerback, a situation they are trying to remedy by signing a free agent ahead of their massive Week 16 date with the Bengals.
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Steelers have signed cornerback Justin King. King played three games with the Colts this season before getting cut, and he worked out for the Steelers recently. Their need for healthy bodies at the position was big heading into last week’s game with the Cowboys, as Ike Taylor and Cortez Allen were both sidelined. It got worse during the game, thanks to injuries to Cortez Allen and DeMarcus Van Dyke.
