PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers have taken Texas A&M cornerback Terrence Frederick in the seventh round of the NFL Draft.
Frederick had three interceptions during his career and led the Aggies with 13 passes defensed as a senior in 2011. The Steelers are looking for depth in the secondary after nickelback William Gay signed a free-agent contract with the Arizona Cardinals.
The 5-foot-10, 187-pound Frederick will also see time on special teams.
