The Pittsburgh Steelers' busy offseason continued on Thursday, as the team is re-signing cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon to a two-year-deal, as confirmed by CBS Sports NFL insider Josina Anderson. 

A former Seahawk and 49ers defensive back, Witherspoon arrived in Pittsburgh last September in exchange for a 2023 fifth-round pick. Witherspoon, who will celebrate his 27th birthday on March 21, led the Steelers with three interceptions last season despite receiving just three starts in nine regular-season games. He also had nine pass breakups for the Steelers, who made the playoffs last season after a 1-3 start. 

Witherspoon will be part of a Pittsburgh secondary that will include Cam Sutton and former Bills safety Levi Wallace, who also signed a two-year deal with the Steelers on Thursday. A former undrafted rookie out of Alabama, Wallace quickly worked his way into the Bills' starting lineup while serving as their No. 2 cornerback alongside Tre'Davious White. Wallace broke up 10 passes with two interceptions during his final season in Buffalo while helping the Bills capture their second consecutive division title. 

Pittsburgh's secondary will look different in 2022 season, as former starters Joe Haden and Terrell Edmunds remain on the open market as free agents. Strong safety is one of the only positions the Steelers have yet to address in free agency. Conversely, the Steelers have largely addressed their needs at quarterback, offensive line, linebacker and cornerback. Pittsburgh signed former Pro Bowl quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to a two-year deal. They also acquired former Bears lineman James Daniels and former Vikings lineman Mason Cole. Pittsburgh also signed former Jaguars inside linebacker Myles Jack to a two-year deal while releasing Joe Schobert

Look for the Steelers to further address their needs on the offensive line, defensive line and at receiver during next month's draft, where they own seven picks, including the 20th overall selection.
