Steelers re-sign Frazier

The Steelers add depth at linebacker, keeping Andre Frazier.

The Steelers on Thursday came to terms on a two-year contract for $1.375 million with backup linebacker Andre Frazier that includes a $125,000 signing bonus.

The 26-year-old Frazier, a special teams player and outside linebacker, is entering his fifth season with the Steelers.

He originally signed with the Steelers as an undrafted rookie out of the University of Cincinnati. The Steelers released him in training camp in 2006. He spent part of next two seasons with the Bengals before returning to Pittsburgh after his release midway through the 2007 campaign.

The 6-5, 245-pound Frazier recorded 10 tackles and a sack in 15 games in 2008, missing one game due to a neck injury. Frazier is the fourth player to re-sign with the Steelers in free agency, joining guard Chris Kemoeatu, right tackle Willie Colon and left tackle Max Starks, who was given the franchise tag.

The team has lost wide receiver Nate Washington to Tennessee and cornerback Bryant McFadden to Arizona.
