The Steelers have agreed to terms with linebacker Arthur Moats on a three-year contract, the team announced today. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Moats saw action in each of the team’s 16 regular-season games (10 starts) and lone postseason contest in 2014. He set a single season career-high with four sacks while contributing 23 tackles (17 solo), six quarterback hits, four tackles for losses, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

Since entering the NFL as a sixth round (178th overall) draft choice of the Buffalo Bills in 2010, Moats has totaled 132 tackles (75 solo), nine sacks, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 75 games with 30 starts. He joined the Steelers as an unrestricted free agent in 2014, after spending his first four years in Buffalo.


The Steelers have agreed to terms with tight end Matt Spaeth on a two-year contract. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Spaeth is entering his ninth NFL season, his seventh with Pittsburgh. He has played in 110 games during the regular season with 66 starts, and he has played in eight postseason games with seven starts.

In 2014, Spaeth recorded a career-long reception, a 33-yard touchdown versus Baltimore on November 2. He also helped block for Le’Veon Bell to rush for the fifth-highest single-season rushing total in team history (1,361).

Spaeth’s career totals include 53 receptions for 410 yards with 10 receiving touchdowns during the regular season.
