The Steelers may look to a familiar face to improve their secondary this offseason.
According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the team has reached out to free agent cornerback Brice McCain, who was released by the Miami Dolphins this offseason after only one year with the club.
McCain, 29, began his career with the Houston Texans in 2009. He started nine games for the Steelers in 2014, and recorded a career best three interceptions with Pittsburgh. All-in-all McCain has nine career interceptions, two returned for touchdowns.
McCain measures 5'9, 185-pounds, and makes up for his lack of size with speed. His free agent status could mean he could return to Pittsburgh this offseason.
The Steelers will explore all their options in the hope of improving a secondary that finished 30th in the league in passing yards allowed per game in 2015.
