Pittsburgh Steelers Sign Former Vikings Cornerback

The Pittsburgh Steelers have made a move to bolster their cornerback position by signing Chandon Sullivan.

Sullivan, who played for the Minnesota Vikings last season, started in 10 games and played in all 17, recording career highs with 60 tackles, seven passes defended, and one fumble recovery.

He also played a career-high 907 defensive snaps, second behind only Patrick Peterson on the Vikings.

Despite his contributions to the Vikings' defense, which struggled last season, Sullivan became a free agent as the team's future with him was uncertain.

The Steelers saw potential in Sullivan and signed him for the upcoming 2023 season.

While Sullivan's lack of special teams experience could pose a challenge for him to secure a roster spot, his versatility and experience as a starting cornerback make him a valuable addition to the team's defense.

The Steelers' cornerback position faced numerous injuries last season, making Sullivan's signing all the more important. Overall, Sullivan's personal success with the Vikings and his ability to add depth to the Steelers' secondary make him a solid addition to the team. Photo Credit: Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports
