The Pittsburgh Steelers hosted former New Orleans Saints and first round draft pick Patrick Robinson Monday in hopes of gaining his services in their secondary in 2015. Those hopes of signing Robinson have vanished as the defensive back signed a one-year deal with $1.25 million dollars guaranteed, per ESPN's Field Yates.

Robinson was one of two veteran defensive backs the Steelers hosted this week, the other being Sterling Moore who spent Tuesday at the team's facility. Moore was meeting with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday, and there has been no report of him signing with a team.

With Robinson off the market, the Steelers will still continue to search for help in their secondary as William Gay, Cortez Allen, Antwon Blake and B.W. Webb are not the definition of consistency in any NFL team's secondary.
