Steelers Sign CB Coty Sensabaugh

The Steelers have signed cornerback Coty Sensabaugh to a two-year deal, the team announced. He’ll likely compete for nickel corner job. Coty Sensabaugh (vertical)

The Steelers hosted Sensabaugh on a visit on Monday and it didn’t take long for the two sides to come to an agreement. The incumbent Giants had interest in retaining him, but they’ll have to find cornerback support elsewhere.

The Steelers now have five corners on the roster: William Gay, Artie Burns, Senquez Golson, Al-Hajj Shabazz, and Sensabaugh. We’re a long way away from September, of course, and his spot on the roster is not a certainty. It’s not immediately clear whether Sensabaugh has guaranteed money included in his deal.

Last year, Sensabaugh appeared in 13 games for the Rams and Giants and Pro Football Focus gave him an abysmal score for that limited sample. Then again, he’s only one year removed from signing a lucrative multi-season deal with the Rams. He could prove to be a valuable supporting piece for the Steelers.

    I like the signing and I trust the FO. After the season ended the way it did, I trust that they know what they need to do regarding upgrading the roster to defeat the Patriots in the AFC Championship game.

    Pretty sure Cockrell will be back as well. If someone was going to give him big money I’m sure they would have by now.

      Cockrell is nothing more than a number 3 on most teams. The Steelers have a sorry cornerback core, even with Artie Burns showing that he can be a shutdown corner. Will Gay is aging and can only play the slot, Cockrell is a solid number 3, but is being asked to shutdown opposing teams top targets, Golson and Shabazz are huge question marks. Steelers needed to go out and get a legit top corner like Claiborne or Amukamara and they didn’t.
