Steelers sign two

The Steelers signed two more of their own veteran free agents today, bringing their total to 11 free agents from last year's team who have re-signed with the club.

The Steelers re-signed three-year cornerback Chidi Iwuoma, who was a restricted free agent, to a three-year contract, and unrestricted free-agent nose tackle Kendrick Clancy to a one-year deal. Financial terms of the contracts were not released.

Iwuoma has been one of the Steelers' top special teams players since originally signing with the team as a free agent Sept. 11, 2002. He finished the 2003 season third on the Steelers with 19 special teams tackles. Clancy, who has made four starts during his four seasons with the Steelers, serves as a reserve behind Pro Bowl nose tackle Casey Hampton.

Clancy and Iwuoma will join the rest of their Steeler teammates May 7-9 for the team's mini-camp at the UPMC Sports Performance Complex on the South Side.
