The Steelers signed linebacker Melvin Ingram III and offensive tackle Chaz Green to one-year contracts.
Ingram III, a pass rushing specialist who will bolster the defense, spent his entire nine-year career with the Los Angeles Chargers after being selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the 18th player overall.
Ingram III, a three-time Pro Bowl selection (2017-19), has 49 career sacks, including career highs of 10.5 in 2015 and 2017. He ranks second in Chargers history with 70 tackles for a loss.
He started 96 of the 113 games he has played in and recorded 348 tackles, including 254 solo stops, 28 pass defenses, 13 forced fumbles, seven fumble recoveries and three interceptions.
Ingram III battled a knee injury in 2020, forcing him to miss time, playing in just seven games with 10 tackles and no sacks before landing on injured reserve.
