PITTSBURGH (AP) — It didn’t take long for the Pittsburgh Steelers to find a replacement for David DeCastro.

The Steelers have signed five-time Pro Bowl guard Trai Turner to a one-year deal shortly after cutting DeCastro in a somewhat surprising move.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but Pittsburgh did find itself with a little money to spend after releasing DeCastro, a six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro.

Turner comes to Pittsburgh three months after being let go by the Los Angeles Chargers.

The 28-year-old Turner spent just one season in Los Angeles, playing in a career-low nine games.

According to, the deal is reportedly worth $3 million.
