Steelers awarded Dean off waivers

The Steelers were awarded free agent cornerback Jhavonte Dean off waivers, the team announced this evening.

Dean was recently released by the Cleveland Browns before being claimed by the Steelers. Dean was originally signed as an undrafted free agent in May out of Miami (Fla.). He played in three preseason games this year for the Browns.

To make room for Dean, the Steelers waived/injured cornerback Brian Allen.
