The Pittsburgh Steelers signed defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi to a one-year contract, the team announced Tuesday.

By joining Pittsburgh, the 28-year-old will continue playing exclusively for AFC North clubs. The Cleveland Browns drafted Ogunjobi in 2017 before he signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2021.

The defensive tackle agreed to join the Chicago Bears early in free agency, but the reported three-year, $40.5-million deal fell through after he failed his physical due to a foot injury.

Ogunjobi produced a career-high seven sacks and 49 total tackles during his lone season with the Bengals.

The Steelers needed to bolster their defensive line after longtime starter Stephon Tuitt retired.
