Free agent safety Will Allen is signed a three-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers according to ESPN's Adam Shefter. Allen played for the Buccaneers from 2004-2009. He started 26 games in six seasons with Tampa Bay and was the Bucs starter at free safety in the 2005 and 2006 seasons. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Allen was drafted by the Buccaneers in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL Draft.

Allen, 27, re-signed with Tampa Bay before the 2009 season and played in eight games before ending the season on injured reserve with a thumb injury. He started two games and had 21 tackles. Allen was the special teams captain, and recorded one tackle on special teams in eight games.

Allen's best seasons as a Buccaneer came in 2006 when he had 83 tackles and in 2005 when he had three interceptions. In his career with Tampa Bay he had four interceptions and two forced fumbles. He totaled 63 tackles on special teams over those six seasons.
