After being released by the Dallas Cowboys earlier this week, veteran safety Will Allen has found a new home...or rather, an old one.
Allen has signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, rejoining a team he spent three seasons with, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
A 10-year vet, Allen spent the 2010-12 seasons with the Steelers. He joined the Cowboys over the offseason and began the season as the starting strong safety before falling down the depth chart.
Allen played in all but two of the Steelers' games during his three-year stay. His most productive season came in 2012, when he accumulated 34 tackles, three passes defensed and a forced fumble.
At 0-4, the Steelers are hoping the signing of the veteran defender can shake up a team desperate for wins.
