The Steelers signed LB Arthur Moats, while the Browns are playing the waiting game with DL Alex Carrington.

On Monday, the Pittsburgh Steelers officially signed LB Arthur Moats to a one-year deal.

It's unclear whether the Browns withdrew their interest at some point, or if Moats simply decided he didn't want to play for Cleveland. Moats will switch to outside linebacker as a member of the Steelers.
