Arthur Moats, Steelers Agree To One-Year Deal

2:06pm: According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (via Twitter), it’s a minimum salary benefit deal for the Steelers and Moats, who will earn a $730K base salary, plus a $65K signing bonus.

1:28pm: The Steelers will sign Arthur Moats to a one-year deal, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, who reports (via Twitter) that the two sides have reached an agreement.

As PFR’s Dallas Robinson noted yesterday when he passed along news of Moats’ meeting with the Steelers, it’s a little surprising that the veteran linebacker didn’t draw more interest this offseason. Moats has only been a part-time player during his first four seasons in the league with the Bills, including just over 300 defensive snaps in 2013, but he’s only 26 years old and performed very well against the run, according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required).
