Report: Steelers Sign Former Bill Cornerback Levi Wallace

Levi Wallace

The Pittsburgh Steelers have reportedly agreed to sign former Buffalo Bills cornerback Levi Wallace to a two-year, $8 million deal, according to Jordan Schultz.

Undrafted out of Alabama in 2018, Wallace has spent the last four seasons as Buffalo’s starter.

Wallace was released at the outset of training camp his rookie year and made his way to Buffalo’s practice squad. He was promoted on Nov. 11, started his first game and never looked back. He started seven games in 2018, 16 in 2019, 12 in 2020 and 17 in 2021.

He has totaled 219 combined tackles, 30 passes defended and six interceptions over his career. 

Last season, Wallace was targeted 81 times, allowing 47 catches for 498 yards and four touchdowns, according to Pro Football Focus. He made two interceptions and broke up seven passes. Wallace was flagged for a career-high seven penalties.

While Ahkello Witherspoon may still be in the Steelers’ plans, long-time corner Joe Haden is likely headed elsewhere this free agency cycle. As a result, the addition of Wallace addresses a need alongside Cameron Sutton.

Wallace played the vast major of his snaps with Buffalo at the outside cornerback position, and he should be penciled in as one starter for the Steelers at that spot.

The Steelers now have Sutton, Wallace and slot corners Arthur Maulet, who just signed a new two-year deal and Tre Norwood in the fold for the 2022 season. The team will likely add one more to that group, be it Witherspoon, another free agent, or a draft pick.
