A third Steelers unrestricted free agent has now found himself a new team as Steelers Digest reported on Twitter that linebacker Keyaron Fox has signed with the Redskins. Fox was the Steelers special teams captain in 2010 and spent three season with the Steelers after he was signed in 2008 as a free agent. Fox was originally drafted by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft after playing his college football at Georgia Tech.
Fox only saw less than 60 regular season snaps on defense for the Steelers in 2010 as his main job was to play special teams. Fox had numerous penalties in that role last year as he was flagged 7 times throughout the entire season. Fox was not an offseason priority for the Steelers to re-sign. Fox joins Matt Spaeth and Nick Eason as Steeler free agents that have signed with other clubs this offseason. Spaeth signed with Bears, while Eason signed with the Cardinals.
