The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed another one of their own unrestricted free agents as defensive end Clifton Geathers has signed a one-year contract.
Geathers signed with the Steelers last season after the team lost veteran defensive end Brett Keisel for the year to a torn triceps
Even after he was signed, Geathers failed to play a snap with the Steelers as he was listed as an inactive player for the final four regular season games.
Geathers should not be considered a lock to make the Steelers 53 man roster out of training camp. he does, however, provide the team an experienced body for the offseason.
The Steelers already have several other young defensive ends under contract for the 2015 season who will battle Geathers during training camp and they are Matt Conrath, Ethan Hemer and Joe Kruger.
Geathers was originally drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of South Carolina.
