Antwaan Randle El informed the Steelers on Monday that he has accepted their three-year offer, according to a league source.
Randle El was a widely popular player among fans, staff and teammates during his first stint with Pittsburgh. He was released by the Redskins last week.
Randle El was a second-round draft pick of the Steelers in 2002, and he excelled as a receiver and a return man. But he might be most well known for his 43-yard touchdown pass to Hines Ward in the Steelers’ Super Bowl XL victory.
Randle El left the Steelers after the Super Bowl and joined the Redskins for the 2006 season.
