 PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed rookie safety Shamarko Thomas to a four-year contract. The Steelers selected Thomas with the 111th overall pick in last month's NFL draft, trading a third-round pick in 2014 to the Cleveland Browns to move up and take Thomas.
Financial details were not disclosed. Thomas is expected to be the primary backup at safety after veterans Ryan Mundy and Will Allen left via free agency in the offseason. Thomas was a first-team All-Big East selection last year at Syracuse after making a career-high 88 tackles for the Orange.
Thomas is the first of Pittsburgh's nine draft picks to sign. The Steelers begin organized team activities next week.
