Steelers Sign Veteran CB Justin King

The Steelers are in need of help at the CB spot, and they looked to take care of that in some regard Tuesday as the team inked veteran CB Justin King.

King goes right on the 53-man roster, and the 25-year-old started his career wit the Rams, drafted him in the fourth round back in 2008.

He played for the Indianapolis Colts this season before they released him after the fifth week.

If King can get up to speed, he will help Sunday a core that has been crushed with injures in the past few weeks. First it was Ike Taylor, and then Sunday Cortez Allen missed the game with a groin injury.

Sunday’s CB starter Keenan Lewis left the game in the fourth quarter with a hip injury and backup DeMarcus Van Dyke left earlier with a separated shoulder.
