Eason started five games last season after defensive ends Aaron Smith and Travis Kirschke were injured. He has played in 69 career games with the Browns (2004-06) and Steelers (2007-09), making nine starts.

Eason signed with Pittsburgh as an unrestricted free agent in 2007.

Kirschke, 35, has not re-signed after spending six seasons with Pittsburgh -- he has played in the NFL since 1997 -- and is expected to retire. He did not miss a regular-season game with the Steelers due to injury until last season.
