Veteran defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi is a Steeler.

After visiting Pittsburgh today, Ogunjobi has signed a one-year contract with the Steelers, the team announced.

This is the second time Ogunjobi has agreed to a free agent contract this offseason: He and the Bears agreed to a deal early in free agency, but he failed his physical with a foot injury stemming from last season, and never signed with the Bears. The Steelers are apparently satisfied that Ogunjob’s foot is good to go.

Ogunjobi started 16 games for the Bengals last year, but the foot injury in the wild card round knocked him out for the rest of the postseason.

The Steelers lost Stephon Tuitt to retirement, and Ogunjobi could take Tuitt’s place on their defensive line.

  1. Steelers are getting pretty desperate to find players willing to take spots on their roster.

  2. A 4-3, 3 tech playing the 5 tech in a 3-4, let’s see how this plays out.

  3. Myles Jack and now this dude. This team makes quiet/cagey moves. Keep picking them to finish 4th…

  4. He was just OK in Cleveland. Splash play then disappear for 2 series. Decent rotational guy.

  5. Darn, was hoping he would come back to the Bengals. Not sure the Steelers have the best system for him. He fit in nicely with the Bengals hybrid scheme. He played better under that than when with the Browns. We will see I guess.
