PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers officially announced the signing of cornerback Desmond King to a one-year contract on Thursday.

Terms of the contract have still not been reported. The news of King’s signing broke on Wednesday, just one day after he was unexpectedly cut by the Houston Texans.

King, 28, played over 900 snaps for the Houston Texans in each of the last two seasons, and did it relatively well, especially in 2022, when he had an 89.2 passer rating when targeted per Pro Football Focus.
