The Steelers acquired their second player in free agency when outside linebacker Keyaron Fox, who played the past four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, signed a one-year contract today.
Fox, a third-round draft choice in 2004, received a signing bonus of $40,000 and will be paid the veteran minimum of $605,000 in 2008. He will be a backup linebacker and special-teams performer for the Steelers.
Fox (6-3, 235 pounds) appeared in only 10 games last season with the Chiefs, registering 21 tackles (19 solo). However, 10 of those (nine solo) came in the season finale against the New York Jets.
The other free-agent player to sign with the Steelers is former Minnesota Vikings running back/kick returner Mewelde Moore.
