Steelers Signing LB Mark Barron To Two-Year, $12M Deal


Adam Schefter reports that the Steelers are signing former Rams LB Mark Barron to a two-year, $12 million deal.

It’s worth mentioning that signing him to a contract won’t impact a team’s 2019 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason. 

Barron, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2012. Tampa Bay traded him to the Rams in 2015 for fourth- and sixth-round picks. 

The Rams ultimately declined to pick up his fifth-year option but re-signed him to a five-year, $45 million contract with $20 million guaranteed in 2016. Barron was owed a $3 million roster bonus on March 15, but the Rams elected to release him before it was due. 

In 2018, Barron appeared in 12 games for the Rams and recorded 60 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble, a pass defense and a safety.
