We have signed free agent cornerback Josh Victorian to a one-year deal.— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) August 3, 2012
The cornerback was undrafted out of Louisiana Tech and was originally signed by the Baltimore Ravens. After spending the 2011 season on the practice squad of the New England Patriots, he signed with the New Orleans Saints during the offseason.
The Steelers signed Victorian to fill the void that was created when the Steelers placed Terry Carter on the waived/injured list because of a hamstring injury that he suffered earlier in the week. The Steelers hope that Victorian can provide depth in the cornerback position entering the preseason.
