Steelers acquire CB Witherspoon from Seahawks

Earlier this week, the Steelers kept only four cornerbacks on their 53-man roster before adding Arthur Maulet back after placing Stephon Tuitt, Zach Banner and Anthony McFarland on short-term injured reserve.

But the team isn't quite done making changes to its cornerback room.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Steelers are trading for Seahawks cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon to help bolster their secondary prior to their regular season opener Sept. 12 in Buffalo.
