PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (WKBN) – NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Pittsburgh Steelers are signing former Chargers’ Pro Bowl edge rusher Melvin Ingram to a one-year free agent contract.

Ingram was a first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2012 and in 113 career games with the team, he posted 265 tackles and 49 sacks.

This past season, Ingram played in just seven games due to nagging knee injuries.

He turned 32 in April.

Ingram has reportedly drew interest from both the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins this off-season.
