Steelers Trade For CB Bryant McFadden

The Steelers brought back a familiar face on Saturday as the acquired former starting cornerback Bryant McFadden from the Arizona Cardinals for a fifth-round pick (No. 155). The Steelers also received a sixth-round pick (No. 195) in the deal. The Steelers didn\’t take a cornerback in the top half of the draft and now we know why. McFadden left Pittsburgh after signing a free-agent deal with the Cardinals following the 2008 Super Bowl season. Although it\’s early, there is a real good chance McFadden will go back to his role as the starting cornerback ahead of William Gay. Gay played well in the nickel and could be more comfortable in that spot. The 28-year-old Florida State product appeared in 51 games for the Steelers, starting 18, and notched seven interceptions with two sacks from 2005-08. He was part of Pittsburgh\’s last two Super Bowl championship teams.
