Steelers sign free agent linebacker Fox

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers added depth to their linebacker and special teams corps by signing free agent linebacker Keyaron Fox to a one-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fox played the past four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs after being drafted in the third round in 2004. Fox enjoyed his best season in Kansas City in 2006 when he collected 52 tackles while playing in all 16 games. He's expected to be a backup linebacker and play on special teams, the same role he filled for the Chiefs.
