OT Ryan Harris is entering his ninth NFL season

The Steelers signed offensive tackle Ryan Harris to a two-year contract, the team announced today. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"I just want to say thanks to the Rooney family, Mr. Colbert, Coach Tomlin and Coach Munchak," said Harris. "I’m looking forward to this year, growing as both a player and a teammate."

Harris, an unrestricted free agent, is entering his ninth NFL season in 2016. After playing collegiately at Notre Dame, he was selected by the Denver Broncos in the third round (70th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft, where he played the first four seasons of his career. Harris was signed by the Houston Texans on September 2, 2012, where he played two seasons before signing with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2014. Most recently, Harris went back to Denver, where he played out the 2015 season.

Harris started all 16 regular-season and three postseason games in 2015. He has started 70-of-110 regular-season games in his NFL career and started 3-of-5 postseason contests.
