PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Steelers have signed Melvin Ingram to a one-year contract.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport first reported the edge rusher inked a deal with Pittsburgh on Monday, when the team hosted Ingram for a visit.

“I just did the deal not too long ago and just got to the airport. It’s definitely a dope organization and environment; so I definitely feel like it’s the place for me,” Ingram told reporter Josina Anderson. “I met with coach (Mike) Tomlin. You can tell he’s very involved and a players coach. That’s what stood out to me. He wants to win and that is what I am on. My role is role. He just told me to come in and be me. Everyone knows how I play.”

Ingram spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Chargers. He was not re-signed after last season.

In addition to Ingram, the Steelers have also signed offensive tackle Chaz Green to a one-year deal.
