Steelers Sign Fifth-Round Draft Pick, CB Shaquille Richardson

The Pittsburgh Steelers now have five of their nine draft picks under contract before June 1.

On Thursday, cornerback Shaquille Richardson, the Steelers first of two fifth-round picks, signed a four-year contract.

Richardson, an Arizona product, should get roughly $2.41 million over four-years and that includes a signing bonus somewhere in the neighborhood of $190,000.

With Richardson now under contract, the Steelers can now focus on getting their top four draft picks signed. A few of those signings will likely take place next week.
