After adding two big outside backs in the draft in Joey Porter Jr. and Corey Trice Jr., the Steelers signed a veteran defensive back with plenty of experience playing in the slot in Chandon Sullivan.

Sullivan, 26, was a rookie free agent in 2018 from Georgia State University, where he set a school record with seven career interceptions and was also an Academic All-American.

Sullivan, who was the first Georgia State player to be invited to the Senior Bowl, was initially signed by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018, but was placed on the practice squad to start this season. He was signed to the active list midway through the season and appeared in five games with one start, making seven tackles.

After being waived by the Eagles, Sullivan signed with the Packers, where he spent the next three seasons, mostly as the team’s linebacker in the slot.

In three seasons at Green Bay, Sullivan appeared in 49 games, starting 20, while recording 102 tackles, five interceptions, and broke up 16 passes.
