Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Steelers are close to reaching a deal with S Keanu Neal.
Neal previously visited with the Eagles, but it looks like the Steelers could be his best option in the end.
Neal, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Falcons back in 2016. He was entering the fourth year of his four-year, $10,737,644 contract when the Falcons picked up his fifth-year option for the 2020 season.
Neal made a base salary of around $6.7 million for the 2020 season. As an unrestricted free agent, he signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Cowboys for 2021. The Buccaneers signed him to a one-year deal last year.
In 2022, Neal appeared in all 17 games for the Buccaneers and recorded 63 tackles, two tackles for loss, 0.5 sack, one interception, four pass defenses.
