The Steelers stepped out of character yesterday, signing Panthers safety Mike Mitchell to a five-year, $25 million deal.

Today’s deals were much more Steelers-like, as they announced new one-year deals for long snapper Greg Warren and reserve safety Will Allen.

Allen came back to the Steelers midseason last year after being cut by the Cowboys, allowing him to play in 17 games in a season (since he didn’t sync up his bye weeks).

Warren has spent his entire career with the Steelers, after joining the team as an undrafted rookie in 2005.
