PITTSBURGH– The Steelers have made a move to address the middle of the team’s defense.
The team has added LB Mark Barron on a two-year, $12 million deal.
Barron, 29, spent parts of the last five seasons with the Rams, who converted him into a linebacker after he began his career at safety.
Since making the switch, Barron has been a tackling machine when healthy.
However, he has missed six games over the past two seasons.
He will look to secure a starting job in the middle of the Steelers’ defense, which was desperate for an infusion of athleticism and pass coverage ability.
