Returning to Pittsburgh

Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-21

The Steelers re-signed Pierre on Tuesday, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

Pierre logged 29 tackles (22 solo) and an interception for Pittsburgh last year and now the 26-year-old will return for the 2023 season. Originally a restricted free agent, the Steelers opted not to tender Pierre last week but will now get him back at a cheaper price. The 2020 undrafted free agent should provide solid depth in the secondary as well as seeing time on special teams.
