Pittsburgh Steelers Re-Sign Cornerback

The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed cornerback James Pierre to a one-year contract.

The 26-year-old defensive back, who entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2020, had been a free agent for the first time this offseason.

Although the team did not offer him a tender as a restricted free agent last week, they have now managed to bring him back at a lower price.

In his previous three seasons with the Steelers, Pierre has accumulated 86 total tackles, two interceptions, eight passes defended, three forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery in a part-time role across 50 games played.

Despite his solid numbers, he is expected to provide depth behind Patrick Peterson, Ahkello Witherspoon, and Levi Wallace in the Steelers' secondary and contribute to special teams during the upcoming 2023 season. Photo Credit:  Jenna Watson/IndyStar / USA TODAY NETWORK
