Spence, who was originally drafted in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Steelers out of Miami, played last season with the Tennessee Titans after signing a one-year free agent contract with them.
In his one season with the Titans, Spence registered 54 total tackles in the 15 games that he played in. He also registered three sacks, a forced fumble and three defensed passes.
Spence spent his first four seasons in Pittsburgh but a serious knee injury that included nerve damage prevented him from playing until the 2014 season. Spence will reportedly earn a $1.25 million base salary in 2017 and received a $750,000 signing bonus. Another $500,000 can be earned via him being a game-day roster player.

With Spence now off the free agent market, the list of available inside linebackers the Steelers might be interested in signing decreases by one more. With that said, Zach Brown and Gerald Hodges remain unsigned as of Sunday morning. The Steelers, however, have yet to show any visible interest in either player.
