Justin King, who the Steelers signed late in 2012 after a rash of injuries, was inked to a one-year day today. The former Gateway High School standout and Penn State cornerback will enter the offseason with his hometown team.

After playing both offense and defense in Happy Valley, King entered the NFL Draft, where the St Louis Rams selected him in the fourth round of the 2008 draft.  In all, he spent four season with the Rams (playing three), with 19 starts in 35 games.

After departing the Rams, he signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2012, and opening the season on their active roster prior to being released in Week 5. King did not suit up for the Steelers in his short stint with the team.
