Well Steeler Nation , on the eve of the kickoff of the 2014 season the Steelers have announced they have signed cornerback Cortez Allen to a four year extension. Allen now will be signed to the team though the year 2018.
Allen came to the Steelers in the fourth round (128th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft out of the Citadel. He was heading into the final year of his rookie contract this season. He has made 11 starts as he now enters his fourth NFL season.
The Steelers have a long-standing policy of not negotiating contracts after the season begins,so its safe to say these negotiations went down to the wire!
