Steelers sign veteran CB Bryant

Former Jets cornerback Justin Miller will be on waivers until 4 p.m. Wednesday. But the Steelers did not wait that long to make a move at the position.

The Steelers signed veteran cornerback Fernando Bryant on Tuesday. To make room for him, the Steelers released rookie linebacker Donovan Woods.

The move should not be overly surprising. The Steelers pursued free-agent cornerback DeAngelo Hall last week, only to see him sign with Washington. Once Hall signed with Washington, the Steelers shifted their cornerback search to other directions and focused in on the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Bryant.

A veteran such as Bryant should be able to thrive in Pittsburgh with the Steelers’ pass rush. A former first-round pick of Jacksonville in 1999, Bryant has played against the Steelers plenty in the past. He spent this summer with New England. But now he is in Pittsburgh.
